Meet the Pakistani Whose Company’s Clients Include 20% of the Fortune 500 [Interview]

What’s the size of Pakistan’s IT exports industry? The number reported by the State Bank of Pakistan, which only looks at official banking channels, is $1 billion. The PSEB estimates them at roughly $3 billion based on a more holistic approach of estimating remittances from non-banking channels, misreporting, freelancing, and expats.

Various government incentives like zero taxation are helping to grow this number and companies like 7vals are taking full advantage. If you aren’t familiar with the name, you aren’t the only one. While its founder Syed Ali is well known in Pakistan’s tech sector, 7vals has flown under the radar.

I find it pretty amazing that two of the most powerful positions in UK--Home Secretary and Mayor of London are now held by people of Pakistani decent.

That's why I was arguing in the Gup Shup/Miscellaneous thread that Pakistanis living abroad should integrate into society rather than disassociate from it.
One thing i have to say,its a really proud moment because we are ruling our former colonial masters.

ISLAMABAD: A Pakistani PhD student has won the distinction for improving LTE and 5G Wireless Systems and is to receive an award along with prize money of $5000 in Bologna, Italy on October 2.

Qurat-ul-Ain Nadeem, studying at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) has won the prestigious Marconi Society Paul Baran Young Scholar Award for her work in transmission technology.

Her research in Full-Dimension (FD) massive multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) is far superior to existing wireless communication systems and is capable of more than doubling the average throughput of the Long Term Evolution (LTE) systems.

Marconi Society was established in 1974 by Guglielmo Marconi’s daughter in a bid to promote advancement in telecommunications and the internet.



The Young Scholars Award along with Marconi prize are presented to scholars with significant achievements.

Qurat has been working on her PhD at KAUST’s Computer, Electrical and Mathematical Science and Engineering division under the supervision of Professor Mohamed-Slim Alouini.

According to him, Qurat’s work establishes a proper link between the industry’s vision for FD-MIMO and the theoretical study of 3-D beamforming.

Qurat’s research focus has been on 3D channel modelling and theoretical aspects of the antenna array in depth as compared to the previous researches which worked on the standardisation of FD-MIMO technology in the 3GPP.

She did her masters from KAUST as well after pursuing electrical engineering at the Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS). FD MIMO is one of the most significant technologies for 5th Generation cellular systems.

“I think this award will encourage more women in the region to enter the field of science and accomplish even greater things,” Qurat said
