With the introduction of the cellular telephony and the Internet in the 1990s as wide-scale consumer services, we have seen both of these technologies become widely adopted worldwide. They have changed our lives tremendously, introducing in many cases new and unexpected services, and created an enormous amount of wealth. Both of these technologies benefited from the exponential increase in the complexity of the integrated circuits with time, known as the Moore's Law. This talk addresses the question of where we are in the development of these technologies. Some of the particular questions the talk attempts to answer are as follows: What is the history of generations of wireless systems, what is the state of demand for services now and into the future, are we reaching maturity in terms of service introduction and adoption, will these technologies be able to generate new wealth in the new decade, and what is the status of Moore's Law today in the face of the integrated circuit feature sizes approaching fundamental limits?



Ender Ayanoglu received the B.S. degree from the Middle East Technical University, Ankara, Turkey, in 1980, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from Stanford University, Stanford, CA, in 1982 and 1986, respectively, Communications Systems Research Laboratory, AT&T Bell Laboratories, Holmdel, NJ (Bell Labs, Lucent Technologies after 1996) until 1999 and was with Cisco Systems until 2002. Since 2002, he has been a Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, University of California, Irvine, where he served as the Director of the Center for Pervasive Communications and Computing and held the Conexant-Broadcom Endowed Chair during 2002-2010. Dr. Ayanoglu is the recipient of the IEEE Communications Society Stephen O. Rice Prize Paper Award in 1995 and the IEEE Communications Society Best Tutorial Paper Award in 1997. From 1993 until 2003, he served as an Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Communications and served as its Editor-in-Chief from 2004 to 2008. Currently, he is serving as a Senior Editor of this journal. From 1990 to 2002, he served on the Executive Committee of the IEEE Communications Society Communication Theory  Committee, and from 1999 to 2001, was its Chair.
