The Wireless Innovation Forum, a non-profit organization dedicated to driving the future of radio communications and systems worldwide, announced today the release of the inaugural “Top 10 Most Wanted Wireless Innovations” list. This list represents the collective view of the Forum’s 100+ member organizations on innovations, either technical, business or regulatory, that if realized would address key shortcomings in existing wireless communications systems.

To create this innovation roadmap, the Forum’s Roadmap Committee sought participation from the different wireless industry stakeholders, including users, radio manufacturers, software and hardware component providers, network operators and spectrum regulators to identify perceived or real shortcomings in the wireless domain. From the input received, the Committee selected the following as the initial “Top 10 Innovations” that have the most potential of improving the wireless communications experience – in no order of priorities:

  1. Techniques for Efficient Software Porting Between Heterogeneous Platforms
  2. Generic Development Tools for Heterogeneous Processors
  3. Certification Process for Third Party Waveform Software
  4. Low Cost Wide Spectral Range RF Front-End (Multi-octave Contiguous) (Tx,Rx)
  5. Techniques to Minimize Power Amplifier Spectral Regrowth in Non-contiguous Spectral Environment
  6. High Performance Power Efficient GPP
  7. Increase Communications Time on Battery Charge by an Order of Magnitude
  8. Means of Coverage Extension – Maintaining Communications in Emergencies and After Disasters
  9. Interference Mitigation Techniques
  10. Flexible Regulatory Framework for Temporary, Cooperative and Opportunistic Access
