Dr. Hatim Zaghloul: Muslim Co-inventor of Wifi Who Is Now Working On 6G and Own Blockchain

Dr. Hatim Zaghloul is best known for co-inventing Wideband Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (WOFDM) and Multi-Code Direct-sequence Spread Spectrum with his long-time associate, Dr. Michel Fattouche (MCDSSS).

Many patents in the fields of wireless communications, signal representation, and estimation were co-authored by him. He co-founded Wi-LAN Inc in 1992, based on his patents in WOFDM (Wide-band Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing).

Dr. Zaghloul is the founder of Inovatian, a company that uses blockchain technology to run on 6G networks.

“It efficiently takes internet from one router, distributes it to its users, and then gives it to another router. WiFi nowadays has a speed of 1.3 gigabits per second. That’s a decent enough rate for 15,000 people. As a result, we can protect towns at a low cost,” Zaghloul explains.

Zaghloul intends to use an InoMesh mesh network, in which wifi routers also serve as nodes, relaying access to other routers in the network; similarly, to BitTorrent peer-to-peer file sharing, the router serves as both a receiver and a transmitter of data to other users. This means that if subscribers receive fewer data than they send, they will gain credit.
