Andrew Vitterbi: wireless man
He invented the wi-fi signal processing algorithm in 1967 as a way to correct errors in noisy digital communications links. It is also used in 3G networks, dial-up modems, satellite and deep space comms, and of course Wi-Fi. It also has a place in speech recognition. He co-founded Qualcomm in 1985 where he developed key wireless technologies.
