Andrews visits tokyo-panasonic' Prof. Jeffrey Andrews visited long-time affiliate Panasonic in Japan, at their Yokohama R&D Center, where he spoke to and met their wireless R&D team, including their cellular and WiFi standards and design groups. He presented his recent research on heterogeneous networks and discussed the rapid evolution of cellular network topology and its impact on Panasonic's core business in consumer electronic devices that are increasingly reliant on high speed wireless data access. Despite the 88 degree indoor temperatures due to severe power restrictions after the tsunami, the lively question and answer session continued for nearly two hours. His generous host was WNCG board member Yasunori Miyahara, 2nd to Dr. Andrews right.
