Wild Ideas for the Future

On this page, I am collecting some "blue sky fantasies" that may or may not be the future of wireless networking.

Ultra-Wideband Pulse Modulation

Shifting things between the time domain and the frequency domain has always been a way to gain hitherto impossible performance through a new understanding of the problem space. Just think of how telephone modems were improved by adaptive echo canceling, allowing simultaneous use of the full bandwidth in both directions simultaneously.

The links in this section point to innovative people who claim to have found similar breakthroughs in wireless data. Unfortunately, it appears to me that they have traded a different set of problems for the known ones. For example, picosecond time synchronization.
