Fellow, Chief Wireless Technologist, Wireless Products R&D


Dr. Kenneth (Ken) Stewart is Chief Wireless Technologist, Intel Wireless Products R&D team, and Intel Fellow. In this role he contributes to innovation in wireless system-on-chip solutions, cellular and connectivity transceiver solutions, codecs, radio access offloading and routing, and location systems. Most recently, Dr. Stewart was Chief Technology Officer for TE Connectivity’s Wireless business unit. He led the development, delivery and deployment of conventional and CPRI-based advanced multi-wavelength digital distributed antenna systems (DDAS), including low- and high-power multi-band multi-carrier remote radio heads (RRH) for LTE, WCDMA/HSPA, CDMA and 802.11. He drove the implementation of TE’s first Gbps optical switching fabric for the flexible delivery of capacity within the network, TE’s first hybridized small cell and DDAS RAN implementation and the integration of TE’s advanced DDAS systems with its rapid fiber deployment technology. Previously, Dr. Stewart was VP, Standards and Research at Motorola Mobile Devices, where he led the Standards and Research Lab which made contributions to the creation of 3GPP’s LTE specification, and previously the WCDMA HSDPA and HSUPA specifications. In his career at Motorola, Dr. Stewart designed and productized advanced wireless solutions for LTE, WCDMA and CDMA base stations and terminals, interference-suppressing MIMO receivers, WiFi offloading and traffic routing middleware and next-generation audio codecs.
