Prof. Dr.-Ing. Ingo Viering
Before founding Nomor Research, Ingo was working for Siemens as a consultant in all air interface related areas. Located directly on the interface between research and reality, he coordinated many collaborations between universities and Siemens. Furthermore, he acted as backoffice for the 3GPP standardization where, among others, he was the driving force for several work item launches. He was also involved in detailed early evaluation of alternative technologies such as Flash-OFDM, WiMAX, LTE and others. He is still consulting Nokia Bell Labs in research, standardization, as well as strategic matters. His field of expertise spans from mobility via multi-connectivity to self-organizing networks, in LTE as well as in new radio/5G. Ingo got his Dr.-Ing. from University of Ulm in 2003. During this time, he collaborated with Siemens in particular on Smart Antenna technologies. He spent a research stay with the “Telecommunications Research Center Vienna (FTW)”, where he conducted early measurements of the MIMO channel. He graduated 1999 at Darmstadt University of Technology. He has filed more than 100 patents and published more than 100 scientific papers. Since 2007 he is Senior Lecturer at Technical University Munich (TUM). In 2018, TUM appointed Ingo as Honorarprofessor.
