Group Research & Development Director, Vodafone Group Plc
Alamouti is one of the telecom industry's premier scientists and one of the most vocal proponents of true mobile broadband. He invented (and patented) a technique called "space-time block coding" that improves the quality of data transfers by transmitting multiple copies of a data stream across a number of antennas and then combining all the received copies of the data. This method of using "Alamouti codes" for mobile data transfer is now a part of almost every international wireless standard. His career as a mobile telephony pioneer started at AT&T Wireless, where he worked on the development of mobile data protocols in the early 1990s. He continued to work on the design of mobile telecom technology at several other firms before joining Intel as the CTO of its mobile wireless group in 2004. At Vodafone, Alamouti is focused on giving Vodafone's mobile customers access to broadband speeds as quickly as possible and he has accepted the industry consensus that LTE technology is a part of that future, despite his preference for the WiMAX platform.
