Edward Au

Huawei Technologies, China

As a Principal Engineer of Huawei Technologies, I have worked on research and product development on cognitive radio networks, 100Gb/s-and-beyond optical long-haul communications as well as fixed wireless transmission system, and I am now taking care of Huawei's standardization activity and product development in WLAN. I have actively participated in standardization organizations and industry forums: I am the primary technical and financial contact of Huawei for Wi-Fi Alliance, sponsor ballot members of serveral IEEE 802 standards and an active contributor of Optical Internetworking Forum (OIF), where I am a co-editor of the channel coding project for 100Gb/s DWDM optical transmission systems, and a member of Speakers Bureau in representing OIF at industry and academic events. I was also a working group secretary of IEEE 802.22 – the first international standards on cognitive radio networks. Prior to joining Huawei, I was with the Institute for Infocomm Research (I2R) whose job duties involve the R&D on physical-layer and system aspects of 4G communications systems and cognitive radio networks. I was also a Visiting Assistant Professor of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and involved in setting up the Wireless IC System Design Center in the HKUST Fok Ying Tung Graduate School. I am currently an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology and Journal of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and I have served as a leading guest editor for the IEEE Communications Magazine Feature Topic on Advances in IEEE Standards and Testbeds for Cognitive Radio Networks. I am also a founding member of Shenzhen Chapter, IEEE Communications Society.
