“Driving the Cellular Revolution With the Help of High Performance Computing.”

Published May 2008

Since 1986, Motorola has been using high performance computing to model cellular networks and telephones, an approach that has given them a clear competitive advantage and made the company a leader in wireless communications. The firm accesses the supercomputers at the NSF-funded University of Illinois National Center for Supercomputing Applications to create highly complex models of their wireless devices and infrastructure as different communications technologies emerge. They are now creating models that reflect the newest generation of cellular systems. Their work continues to help Motorola retain its leadership position in the global wireless marketplace.
