  • Muriel Médard, professor of electrical engineering in the EECS Department at MIT and principal investigator in the Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE) has led a team to develop a new way to guarantee more reliable wireless reception. The team has improved wireless bandwidth tenfold by eliminating resending of dropped packets of data, often the source of network clogging. Read more in the Oct. 23, 2012 Technology Review article by David Talbot titled "A Bandwidth Breakthrough. A dash of algebra on wireless networks promises to boost bandwidth tenfold, without new infrastructure."
  • Calling it a glimpse into the future, technology news website CRN has hailed MIT EECS/CSAIL faculty and the new Wireless@MIT center as the source for seven new technologies that will impact (favorably) our daily lives. Read more...
