Overview of Wireless Communication System
INTRODUCTION

In December 2002, the Wireless Research Laboratory (WCRL) was upgraded to Wireless Communication Centre (WCC) as a center of excellence. WCC has been working closely with telecommunication operators, manufacturers and regulators. Some of the works that have been carried out by WCC were for Universiti Utara Malaysia, SIRIM, Petronas, Celcom Sdn. Bhd, NTT, Jabatan Telekomunikasi Malaysia, Mobikom Sdn. Bhd MACREC and the Ministry of Defense. The research works have also been funded by Intensive Research in Priority Area (IRPA)

Currently, WCC is focusing on industrial contracts and consultation. These research contracts are from Industry Grant Scheme (IGS), telecommunication operatorsas well as from national and international companies such as Ericsson Telecommunications Sdn. Bhd, Perwira Ericsson Sdn. Bhd, NTT Docomo, Japan, NASA and Multimedia Grant Scheme (MGS). WCCis playing a leading role in International Mobile Telecommunication 2000 (IMT 2000) standardization activities in Malaysia where WCC acts as the secretariat. Various efforts have been initiated since 1996 in order to increase the awareness and understanding among players in local industries in the emerging wireless communication technologies.

The success of WCC is built on the dedication and commitment to meeting the needs of local industries and international companies. However, the industries’ strong support is important in this context. WCC’s vision, i.e. “To transform WCC to become world class and excellent wireless communication research center”.

RF and Microwave Integrated Circuit
INTRODUCTION

In December 2002, the Wireless Research Laboratory (WCRL) was upgraded to Wireless Communication Centre (WCC) as a center of excellence. WCC had been working closely with telecommunication operators, manufacturers and regulators.

Some of the works that have been carried out by WCC were for Universiti Utara Malaysia, SIRIM, Petronas, Celcom Sdn.Bhd., NTT, Jabatan Telekomunikasi Malaysia, Mobikom Sdn. Bhd., MACREC and the Ministry of Defense. The researchworks have also been funded by Intensive Research in Priority Area (IRPA).

Currently, WCC is focusing on industrial contracts and consultation. These research contracts are from Industry Grant Scheme (IGS), telecommunication operators as well as from national and international companies such as Ericsson Telecommunications Sdn. Bhd., Perwira Ericsson Sdn. Bhd., NTT Docomo, Japan, NASA and Multimedia Grant Scheme

(MGS).WCC is playing a leading role in International Mobile Telecommunication 2000 (IMT 2000) standardization activitiesin Malaysia where WCC acts as the secretariat. Various efforts have been initiated since 1996 in order to increase theawareness and understanding among players in local industries in the emerging wireless communication technologies.

The success of WCC is built on the dedication and commitment to meeting the needs of local industries and internationalcompanies. However, the industries’ strong support is important in this context. WCC’s continuing efforts to strive forremarkable achievement is best described and reflected in the WCC’s vision, i.e. “To transform WCC to become world classand excellent wireless communication research center”.
