Engineering Alumni Co-Author Book on Wireless Networking

February 28, 2003

Three UTA College of Engineering graduates are among the seven authors of "IP in Wireless Networks," “the first network professional's guide to integrating IP in 2G, 2.5G, and 3G wireless networks,” according to the publisher, Prentice Hall. All three have solid backgrounds in wireless network development and Internet protocols (IP).

Basavaraj Patil (MSCS, '93) is a Senior Systems Engineer at Nokia Networks in Dallas and has a number of patent applications in the wireless data area. He has been actively involved in the standardization of mobile IP in the Internet Engineering Task Force and is a co-chair of the Mobile IP and Protocol-carrying Authentication for Network Access (PANA) working groups.

Yousuf Saifullah (MSEE, '91) is a Senior Research Engineer at Nokia Research Center in Irving and has been involved in the development and research of various cellular and satellite communication technologies, including GSM, Iridium, cdma2000, 1xEV-DV, EDGE and UMTS. For the past three years, Yousuf has been doing research on the convergence of IP and 3G cellular technologies. This work has resulted into ten filed patent applications.

Sarvesh Sharma (MSEE, '94) is a Product Development Manager with Nortel Networks in Richardson and has been involved in the research and development of various CDMA access performance related algorithms for handoff, power control, QoS, Data Burst allocation, etc. His work has resulted in five filed patent applications.

In promotional materials, Prentice Hall states that the book “delivers systematic, expert implementation guidance for every leading wireless network, including 802.11, Bluetooth, GSM/GPRS, W-CDMA, cdma2000, and i-mode. In-depth coverage encompasses architecture, technical challenges, deployment and operation strategies, mobility models, routing, and applications. The book presents future evolution of the wireless IP networks with emerging applications and the role of standardization bodies.”
