Ir YAU Siu Lun, Sheldon
Head of Wireless and Core Network Engineering, Hong Kong Telecom Limited
MSc in Electronic Engineering, Hong Kong Polytechnic University (1996)

Ir YAU Siu Lun, Sheldon has been at the forefront of mobile technology advancements in Hong Kong for over three decades. Starting in the early 1990s, he drove the development of new network features like IUO and pioneered innovations like the first subway coverage and microcell deployment. This allowed him to enhance GSM coverage and capacity in the Hong Kong market. As mobile networks evolved from traditional voice to data services in the late 1990s, he designed multi-band antenna technologies to handle the new requirements, including dual frequencies like 900MHz and 1800MHz.

In the 2000s, he deployed one of Hong Kong's first 3G mobile networks, navigating the transition from TDMA to CDMA technology. His Master's degree from PolyU helped him excel in this era. During the 4G era in the 2010s, he resolved the challenges of increasing frequency bands, carrier aggregation demands, and applied various fixed technologies like GPON and CWDM to mobile network operations.  After that, he led the project to consolidate the PCCW and CSL networks, and enabled HKT to deploy Hong Kong's first 5G network in 2020.

Now, he is spearheading the development of 5G-Advanced, Artificial Intelligence and Low Altitude Airspace Economy related technologies, cementing HKT's leadership through continuous innovation. His wish is to continue his contribution to the progress of the mobile communication industry in Hong Kong and globally.
