Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers
The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers or IEEE (pronounced as eye-triple-e) is an international
non-profit, professional organization for the advancement of technology related to electricity. It has the
most members of any technical professional organization in the world, with more than 360,000 members in around
IEEE's Constitution defines the purposes of the organization as "scientific and educational, directed toward the
advancement of the theory and practice of electrical, electronics, communications and computer engineering, as
well as computer science, the allied branches of engineering and the related arts and sciences." In pursuing these
goals, the IEEE serves as a major publisher of scientific journals and a conferences organizer. It is also a leading
developer of industrial standards in a broad range of disciplines, including electric power and energy, biomedical
technology and healthcare, information technology, information assurance, telecommunications, consumer electronics,
transportation, aerospace, and nanotechnology. IEEE develops and participates in educational activities such as
accreditation of electrical engineering programs in institutes of higher learning.
IEEE produces 30 percent of the world's literature in the electrical and electronics engineering and computer science
fields, and has developed more than 900 active industry standards. It also sponsors or cosponsors more than 300
international technical conferences each year. The IEEE consists of 37 societies, organized around specialized technical
fields, with more than 300 local organizations that hold regular meetings. The IEEE publishes an extensive range of
peer-reviewed journals, and is a major international standards body (nearly 900 active standards with 700 under
Most IEEE members are electrical engineers, computer engineers, and computer scientists, but the organization's wide
scope of interests has attracted engineers in other disciplines (e.g., mechanical and civil,) as well as biologists,
physicists, and mathematicians.
The IEEE is incorporated in the State of New York, United States. It was formed in 1963 by the merger of the
Institute of Radio Engineers (IRE, founded 1912) and the American Institute of Electrical Engineers (AIEE,
founded 1884). It has a dual complementary regional and technical structure - with organizational units based
on geography and technical focus. It manages a separate organizational unit (IEEE-USA) which recommends policies
and implements programs specifically intended to benefit the members, the profession and the public in the United
The Standards Association is in charge of the standardization activities of the IEEE. There are seven steps to
its standard setting process, which typically takes 18 months to complete: 1. Securing Sponsorship 2. Requesting
Project Authorization 3. Assembling a Working Group 4. Drafting the Standard 5. Balloting (75% approval required)
6. Review Committee 7. Final Vote.
Notable Presidents of IEEE and its founding organizations include Elihu Thomson (AIEE, 1889-1890), Alexander
Graham Bell (AIEE, 1891-1892), Charles Proteus Steinmetz (AIEE, 1901-1902), Lee De Forest (IRE, 1930),
Frederick E. Terman (IRE, 1941), William R. Hewlett (IRE, 1954), Ernst Weber (IRE, 1959; IEEE, 1963), and
Ivan Getting (1978).
The current (2005) president of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers is W. Cleon Anderson. The
current president of Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers USA is Gerard A. Alphonse.
802.16 - Examples of a core network are the public telephone network and the Internet. IEEE 802.16 standards are concerned with the air interface between a subscriber's transceiver station and a base transceiver station.
802.16e vs 802.20 - There is clearly some overlap between the 802.16e vs 802.20, but the party line from companies involved in the 802.20 standards effort are not competitive.
802.20 - Intel could be closing the door on the emerging 802.20 mobile broadband wireless access standard after the company admitted to uncertainty surrounding the working group's ability to put aside self-interest.
Mobile Broadband - Nokia 6630, 4G, WCDMA for UMTS, Three mobile broadband Australia, IEEE, Wireless VoIP & WiMax information. T-Mobile & Siemens have announced the first rollout of mobile broadband in Europe.
