The last few years have witnessed a tremendous growth of the demand for wireless services and a significant increase of the number of mobile subscribers. A recent data traffic forecast from Cisco reported that the global mobile data traffic reached 1.2 zettabytes per year in 2016, and the global IP traffic will increase nearly threefold over the next 5 years. Based on these predictions, a 127-fold increase of the IP traffic is expected from 2005 to 2021. It is also anticipated that the mobile data traffic will reach 3.3 zettabytes per year by 2021, and that the number of mobile-connected devices will reach 3.5 per capita.
With such demands for higher data rates and for better quality of service (QoS), fifth generation (5G) standardization initiatives, whose initial phase was specified in June 2018 under the umbrella of Long Term Evolution (LTE) Release 15, have been under vibrant investigation. In particular, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) has identified three usage scenarios (service categories) for 5G wireless networks: (i) enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB), (ii) ultra-reliable and low latency communications (uRLLC), and (iii) massive machine type communications (mMTC). The vast variety of applications for beyond 5G wireless networks has motivated the necessity of novel and more flexible physical layer (PHY) technologies, which are capable of providing higher spectral and energy efficiencies, as well as reduced transceiver implementations.

I've recently inherited my father's audio software company, FxSound, and I'm looking to get a paid consultation on DSP and audio as it relates to our software.
We lost our audio and DSP engineer when my father passed, and I want to bring on a DSP/audio engineer to ensure that we're moving our product in the right direction and bringing real value to our customers.
The first thing I'd be looking for assistant with is developing my understanding of the problems consumers are facing in the audio space, the solutions that are on the market, and how our software FxSound fits in.
The second thing we will be looking to hire for in the coming months is a DSP engineer with C programming experience to help us develop the next version of our software.
So long as you can assist with at least the first ask, I'd be happy to chat with you!
We've served over 100,000 customers over our 20 years and business and our software has been installed over 10M times. You can find our software (and try it for free) at www.fxsound.com.
