SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 17, 2010
Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced that Moray Rumney, the lead technologist specializing in LTE at Agilent, has won the Informa LTE North America 2010 award for individual contribution to LTE development.
The Informa LTE North America Awards recognize and celebrate excellence in the LTE community. The nine awards categories cover LTE standards, product design and network deployment, plus the individual contribution award. LTE is the long-term evolution of 3G UMTS and is the preferred choice of operators moving towards 4G wireless.
"I am delighted to win this award for contributing to the development of LTE," said Rumney, "As cellular wireless technology continues to grow in complexity, the most rewarding aspect of my job is to explain this new technology in accessible ways for those who need to implement it or understand its impact and significance on wireless industry evolution."
Rumney has worked in the wireless cellular industry for 20 years. His work is centered around radio standardization at 3GPP RAN WG4 and more recently at the LTE/SAE Trial Initiative where he helped develop LTE field trial tests. A frequent presenter and chair at wireless industry conferences, he has published many technical articles, hosted web seminars and edited "LTE and the Evolution to 4G Wireless," an Agilent book dedicated to the design and measurement challenges of LTE. His current standards work includes development of antenna testing methods for LTE MIMO user equipment, and he is working with other Agilent LTE experts on the second edition of Agilent's LTE book, which will include 4G LTE-Advanced.
"Informa's confirmation of one of our experts, Rumney, really highlights our leadership contribution in this complex technology," said Jeff Henderson, Agilent vice president, Electronic Measurement Group. "We strive to have the staff and subsequent strong product portfolio in LTE test products that our customers need and expect."
