Electrical and Computer Engineering Honor Society

Vinton G. Cerf
Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd.
Eta Kappa Nu established the Eminent Member
recognition in 1950 as the society's highest membership
classification. It is to be conferred upon those select few
whose technical attainment and contributions to society
through leadership in the fields of electrical and computer
engineering have resulted in significant benefits to
humankind. Since 1950, only 123 individuals have been
selected to receive this honor. For a full listing of Eminent
Members, visit the website, www.hkn.org

For the innovative conception, development and
deployment of Mobile WiMAX technology that enables
the true ubiquity of mobile communications

Samsung Electronics' Mobile WiMAX technology is changing
how and where the world accesses data in mobile environments.
Samsung introduced Mobile WiMAX technology in 2005 and it
is now in use throughout the world. Mobile WiMAX offers the
benefits of wired high-speed Internet and wireless local area
network systems, but without their inherent restrictions, to
provide seamless wireless broadband services in a truly mobile
environment. Samsung's technology is instrumental in providing
broader Internet access within developing countries. Areas with
weak or nonexistent wire-line infrastructure can take advantage
of mobile broadband access without having to dig ground or
build wire-line networks. Populations who may not have been
able to afford desktop computers or expensive access fees can
now access the Internet with less-expensive hand-held devices.
In countries with established infrastructures, Mobile WiMAX
presents opportunities for enhanced services such as video
streaming, interactive television, real-time gaming and mass
Web browsing and e-mail access. Despite early opposition from
existing technologies, Samsung continued to invest in Mobile
WiMAX and has become a major equipment supplier, with pioneering products including PC cards, USB adapters, ultramobile
PCs and laptops and multimode smart phones. Samsung is a
member of the WiMAX Forum, a nonprofit group that promotes
and certifies WiMAX products and services.
