Moroccan inventor Majid El Bouazzaoui won the Grand Prix of the International Contest for Inventions “iCAN-2019”, the final of which was held this weekend in Toronto, Canada.
This competition has experienced the historic participation of 50 countries, a record since its launch, said Monday a statement from the association OFEED Morocco.
The award-winning invention solves a blocking problem in the operation of telecom networks through 5G and other future technologies, at the level of the digitization of data to be transmitted, which is the first step in the telecommunication process between two users, because the information is not available in digital format in the real environment (voice, images, temperature and other physical quantities), according to the same source.
This digitization step therefore has a direct impact on the speed of transmission, whatever the technology used on the telecommunication network, adds the association chaired by Majid El Bouazzaoui, explaining that the speed of the 5G telecom network has no interest if the data to be transmitted are not available with the same rate.
With the arrival of the 5G, scanning with current technologies is not enough to reach the required speed level, says the same source.
This being the case, the statement goes on, this invention comes to enable the information to be transmitted to be digitized much more quickly by reducing the number of transistors used, thereby speeding up data transmission over 5G telecommunications networks and beyond.
This means the improvement of many scientific and technological fields in telecommunications, health, artificial intelligence, big data, robotics, Internet of Things, smart cities, smart homes, autonomous vehicles …, explaining that, for example, using this invention in space, data transmission from Mars to Earth can reach its destination 10 minutes earlier than existing solutions.
This invention may be practicable in all electronic equipment that uses sound, images, video or any other analog information to be sent over 5G networks or future telecommunications networks: smartphones, computers, robots, satellites, space shuttles, planes, cameras and other sensors.
