Special Session – June 15


IEEE ComSoc/SP join chapters along with EMBS/CS would like to invite you to attend a special session on


Bringing True Full Duplex Communications to Life: Promises and Challenges”


Presenter: Mr. Hardik Jain, VP of Engineering, GenXComm Inc.


Date: 15 June 2017

Time: 06:00 PM to 08:00 PM Central

Location: AT&T Labs,  9505 Arboretum  Austin, Texas






Wireless is a broadcast medium, one radio’s transmission can be received at multiple locations in its range. This creates an interference region where other transmissions at the same frequency are prohibited due to potential collisions and interference. Current radios generally either take turns to transmit and receive or use different frequency to transmit and receive to avoid interference from the transmitter at their own receiver. In this talk, we will discuss the most desired way of transmission in wireless networks, full duplex transmissions. Full duplex radios can listen to the transmission from other radios while concurrently transmitting data from their own transmitter without needing any orthogonality. This unique capability at the front-end of the physical layer enables host of benefits at L1 and L2 layer to massively improve the data carrying capacity of the link and the network. We will first discuss the key principle technology that allows simultaneous transmission and reception. Subsequently, we will discuss the use cases / transmission scenarios where this technology can improve the capacity of networks without changing the existing standards and the user equipment. In the end, we will conclude the talk with the impact of full duplex technology as it becomes the part of next generation standards.



Hardik Jain received B.E. degree in electrical engineering from the Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS), Pilani in 2011 and the M.S. degree in electrical engineering from The University of Texas at Austin in 2015. He is a graduate student currently working towards the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering at The University of Texas at Austin. His research interest includes full duplex wireless transmission, design of wireless communication systems and coding theory. His work on full duplex radios and self-interference cancelation technology is being commercialized to build a product at GenXComm Inc. where he serves as the VP of Engineering. His former industry experience includes work at Texas Instruments, Bangalore in 2011 and Broadcom India Research, Bangalore from 2011 – 2013.
