1.7 Chapter Summary
Communications and network researchers, circuit designers, and antenna engineers seldom interact at universities or within the industry, leading to the potential for a huge void in mmWave wireless research capabilities. The innovative skills needed to ensure global leadership in the next revolution of wireless communications at the edge of the network, and in future mobile cellular systems, are not presently supported in an interdisciplinary manner by the government or the industrial research complex. We must teach researchers new, interdisciplinary strategies to create the ever-evolving broadband wireless devices and systems at mmWave, and beyond. To this end, it is our hope that you find this text to be a useful guide, enabling the creation of myriad new devices and applications that will soon be using the mmWave spectrum.
