Dr. Hatim Zaghloul


  • President, Chairman & CEO
  • Innovation Inc.

  • Dr. Zaghloul is introducing the 6G technology: a revolutionary concept that brings the cost of the network down by almost a hundred times with the goal of delivering internet to half the world that does not have access to it because of its cost. The concept is comprised of WiFi islands where all access points within the island talk to each other via a proprietary mesh technology. These islands are connected together via blockchain nodes that also sever as servers for virtual machines and cybersecurity. This allows the over 13B devices in the world to connect to the network whilst allowing a low cost smart phone to access the network using the resources of the blockchain server. The 6G Forum (www.6gforum.net) was formed to promote this concept and currently has over 100 members.
  • Dr. Hatim Zaghloul, an Egyptian Canadian, is recognized as a visionary leader in the hi-tech community. In 1992, Dr. Zaghloul co-founded Wi-LAN Inc., and under his direction, the two technologies he co-invented with Dr. Michel Fattouche became the heart of many wireless communications standards: WiFi (IEEE802.11a/g/n), 3G (H and H+), LTE and 4G (WiMAX).
