Awarded annually by the Marconi Society, the Marconi Prize is often referred to as the “Nobel Prize for Communications” and recognizes the contributions and impact of innovators in the communications industry. He joins other technology minds and distinguished Marconi Fellows such as Vint Cerf, considered one of the creators of the Internet for the invention of the TCP/IP protocol; Marty Cooper, inventor of the cell phone and the first person to make a public cell phone call; and Google co-founders Sergei Brin and Larry Page, who invented the Page Rank algorithm and created the Internet’s leading search engine.

“It is humbling to be recognized by the Marconi Society, whose mission and values ​​have been a guiding light in my efforts to democratize the Internet and provide equal access to information to all people around the world,” he said. Alamouti. “I am honored to be included in such a distinguished company. I would like to thank the Marconi Society for making digital equity a driving force behind their mission. We have a long way to go to make the Internet available to all children and adults around the world, and an even more challenging road to ensure that the Internet does not become a channel for the spread of misinformation, conspiracy theories and propaganda. .

“To protect our future, we must look at all aspects of the ecosystem, including technology, business model, and regulations to ensure that people can easily distinguish facts and realities from beliefs and propaganda. Regardless, I have learned that there are no challenges that cannot be overcome through exploration, experimentation, and hard work. I look forward to collaborating with Marconi Fellows to explore creative ways to ensure a future Internet that is sustainable, equitable, private, secure, and drives a thriving digital economy,” concluded Alamouti.

The Alamouti Code, which Alamouti developed in 1996, optimizes the reception of mobile signals through transmitters found in cellular base stations or access points. This eliminates the need to add more receivers to wireless devices, reducing cost, size and carbon footprint. The code now serves as the foundation for multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) technology, which is a key component of today’s wireless standards. Alamouti’s work in this area has been cited more than 20,000 times in world scientific research.

Throughout his career, Alamouti has held positions at major technology companies such as AT&T, Intel and Vodafone. During this time, he has advocated for people around the world and has been a strong voice for open wireless standards and technology. His leadership in this area is reflected in his contributions to global telecommunications and Internet standards and spectrum policy reform.

“Siavash has brought connectivity to billions of people by making wireless devices more efficient and affordable without reducing reception quality,” said Vint Cerf, president of the Marconi Society and a 1998 Marconi Fellow. Throughout his career, he has been a fundamental advocate for technology as a democratizing force in the world.”

In keeping with his passion for accessible and responsible use of the Internet, Alamouti recently expanded his focus to include edge cloud computing, cloud decentralization, and data sovereignty. He joined mimik in 2014, where he helped build and commercially deploy the industry’s first hybrid edge cloud platform. He handed over the CEO responsibility to founder Fay Arjomandi in 2020 so that he can focus on the business and financial models of the Internet, specifically protecting data sovereignty and digital assets. He continues to play an active role as CEO of the company and is now focused on creating a platform to protect people’s data and help them manage and monetize this valuable asset.

mimik’s hybrid edgeCloud platform transforms cloud applications from a fixed client-server architecture, where server functionality is limited to servers in data centers and gateways, to a fully distributed architecture, enabling thousands of millions of smart client devices act as servers and offer near-infinite scalability. The mimik platform enables heterogeneous applications, processes, and devices to communicate autonomously in clusters at the edge, regardless of their operating system or network. Because data is processed at the edge, mimik’s platform requires significantly less bandwidth and power, reduces cloud hosting costs, is more resilient than traditional client-server architecture, and offers much higher levels of privacy and data security.

“Siavash is an industry gem that has greatly contributed to the advancement of wireless technology and Internet access around the world. We are honored to work with him. I remember the day I met him in 2010 at Vodafone to present my idea of ​​a decentralized internet focused on bringing control of data to its rightful owners,” said mimik founder and CEO Fay Arjomandi. “He supported me on that journey from the beginning and in 2014 he agreed to help me as CEO of mimik, by investing in the company and foregoing a salary. This was at a time when edge cloud was a completely disruptive approach not yet on the radar of venture capitalists. I feel lucky to have found a co-founder who shared my vision and passion for humanity and the use of technology for social progress. This is a well-deserved distinction that underscores the importance of creating and championing technology that is applied for the greater good.”
