Please RSVP to Robert A. Walston by email to OR by phone at 740-334-1110 by 1 PM on Wednesday, 11 March 2015.

Bio: Dr. Tarik Taleb is an IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) Distinguished Lecturer and a senior member of IEEE. He is currently a Professor at the School of Engineering, Aalto University, Finland. He has been working as Senior Researcher and 3GPP Standards Expert at NEC Europe Ltd, Heidelberg, Germany. He was then leading the NEC Europe Labs Team working on R&D projects on carrier cloud platforms. He was also serving as technical leader of the main work package, Mobile Core Network Cloud, in EU FP7 Mobile Cloud Networking project, coordinating among 9 partners including NEC, France Telecom, British Telecom, Telecom Italia, Portugal Telecom Innovation, SAP, & Intel.

Abstract: The telecom industry keeps reinventing itself. Soon, the world will be experiencing the 5th generation mobile networks (5G), also referred to as beyond 2020 mobile communication systems. Major obstacles to overcome in 5G systems are principally the highly centralized architecture of mobile networks along with the static provisioning and configuration of network nodes built on dedicated hardware components. The talk will introduce a set of technologies and key architectural elements to realize such vision, turning end-to-end mobile networking into software engineering.

Communications Computer Tech Society Mtg

Topic “Electronic Circuit Card Testing in Industry”  Presenter: Sol Black

DATE:  Tuesday, 17 FEB 2015  Time: Refreshments: 5:30  Meeting: 6:00 to 7:00 PM

Location:  DeVry University Room 160  1350 Alum Creek Drive, Columbus, OH 43209-2705

Abstract:  In this one hour presentation, Mr. Sol Black, explains the various techniques to test electronic circuit cards in a manufacturing environment.  He covers disciplines such as Product-Testing-Product, Functional Testing, and Boundary Scan (JTAG IEEE 1149.X), but concentrates on In Circuit Testing as this is the fastest way to test products as well as the method having the highest fault coverage.

This is a fast moving and entertaining discussion which combines humor with a lot of technology.  It is not an academic speech but a real hands-on description of what is done in the industry.  Although students will find this talk especially informative, practicing Engineers will also learn a considerable amount from it.

Biography:  Mr. Black is a Senior Member of IEEE and a retired Senior Test Engineer from Western Electric/AT&T/Lucent Technologies.  He was responsible for Design For Testability and Test Development at Lucent.  He has also consulted in the field, spent time at Celestica Technologies, and is still working in the field, part-time, at LSI/ADL Technologies.  He resides in a suburb of Columbus, Ohio.  He is the Membership Chair of the IEEE Columbus Section and past Chair, Vice Chair, and Secretary.  He also served many years as the Communications Society Chair of the Columbus Section.

Please RSVP to Robert A. Walston by email to Or by phone at 740-334-1110 by 1 PM on Monday, 16 February 2015.
