Software Defined Radio pioneer Dr. Vanu Gopal Bose passed away, aged 52

In 1998, Bose founded Vanu Inc. which pioneered the commercialization of software-defined radio and was the first company to receive FCC certification of a software-defined radio in 2004.

The firm’s technology, which grew out of Bose's graduate research at MIT, increases the role of software in operating the radio-based component of wireless communications networks, including those used for cell phone communications.

His company had recently deployed over 40 Community Connect base stations in Puerto Rico to provide cellular service in the wake of two devastating hurricanes.
