Talk Abstract: In this talk, I will describe the ongoing Technology For All (TFA) project to bring advanced wireless prototypes to underserved and under resourced communities. The TFA project takes research from the lab to an urban field trial in Houston, simultaneously demonstrating research advances while serving thousands of users. Today, our in-lab prototypes are exploring new communication, sensing, and security capabilities at frequencies from millimeter wave to sub terahertz. I will describe how this new spectrum requires a new way of thinking about wireless networking and enables new devices and new network architectures. I will also discuss open challenges and a road map for future wireless research.
