Bio: Shahrnaz Azizi received B.S. degree from Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran, M.S. degree from Iran University of Science and Technology, Tehran, Iran and Ph.D. degree from Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ, USA, all in Electrical Engineering. Since May 2000, she has been with Intel Corporation where she has worked on the design, development and implementation of Wi-Fi devices, and has contributed to various standards developments in IEEE 802.11, WiMax and LTE with focus on the physical layer algorithms. She is currently a Research Scientist at Intel Labs with research interests in development of physical and MAC layers of next generation wireless communications systems.

Abstract: The Low Power Wake-up Receiver (LP-WUR) is a promising technology that can facilitate low-power wireless communication, particularly in IoT use case scenarios, by enabling an on-demand and asynchronous wake-up mode of operation. While a dedicated low-power wake-up receiver continuously listens to the channel for a wake-up signal, the power-hungry main radio receiver can be turned off to save power until a wake-up signal is detected. The LP-WUR reduces power consumption without sacrificing the latency performance. Although the concept of WUR has been proposed in academia some years ago, only recently it has attracted significant attention from industries due to the development of IOT, as an example, the IEEE 802.11 standardization has very recently formed a new Wake-Up Receiver (WUR) Task Group TGba. In this talk, we give an overview of LP-WUR technology and a new standard development for LP-WUR in IEEE 802.11 Wake-up Radio Task Group (TGba).
