I have been selected as the finalist for two different awards for 2020, the Cisco 2020 IT Blog Award for Best Analysis and the Wi-Fi Award Rookie of the Year
Cisco 2020 IT Blog Award in the Best Analysis category
I have been selected as one of the finalist to the Cisco 2020 IT Blog Award, in the category of Best Analysis. If you want to see which blog articles I have published the last years, take a look into the Site Contents.
My main area of interest is 802.11ax and OFDMA, both capturing the frames and a deeper look into the theory behind OFDMA.
There is also some articles based on 802.11 preamble and stuff around the PHY layer of 802.11.
Check also my WiFi AirTime Calculator, a Excel spreadsheet for calculating the duration of an 802.11 TXOP in the 5GHz band. It can calculate the TXOP duration for 802.11a/n/ac/ax frames. It also include the waiting time (DIFS/AIFS and the random backoff timer) before the frames can be sent onto the wireless medium.

The Wi-Fi Awards Rookie of the Year
I am also one of the finalist for the Wi-Fi Award Rookie of the Year
This is the rationale:
Gjermund Raaen has been a significant contributor to the wireless community. He has authored several blog articles regarding bits and bytes in the 802.11ax protocol, trying to describe how OFDMA works and how to interpret captured 802.11ax frame. In addition he has put together a WiFi AirTime calculator to visualize airtime usage for OFDM (non-HT), HT, VHT and HE TXOPs. His engagement and questions on social media, webinars, and conferences are pointed directed and are helping make the wireless community stronger.
If you want to vote for me or some of the other finalists, vote here. The voting closes at Dec 31, 2020
Please vote for me, or some of the others
I will be very delighted if you vote for me.
Anyway, I will still publish articles in my area of interest in the future. These nomination encourage me to keep on going
