NY research group working on 5G wireless network


by | 01 May 2014

Demand for data capacity on wireless devices is doubling annually.

New York researchers have joined forces to help develop 5G wireless networks.

Steadily increasing levels of gaming, web browsing, and music and video streaming on mobile devices have lead to research team NYU Wireless working with bandwidth specialist Straight Path Spectrum to increase data capacity on media devices.

Straight Path plans to support the research it hopes will lead to the next generation of wireless technology.

Straight Path is the tenth company to join Wireless, which includes more than 20 faculty and 100 graduate students who focus on research and teaching in the fields of wireless communications systems, signals, and antennas at the millimeter wave frequency bands.

Wireless director and founder Professor Theodore Rappaport said: "Straight Path is dedicated to maximizing the value of the millimeter wave spectrum to help mobile network operators and Internet service providers provide the backhaul and, eventually, mobility that will be required for wireless networks of the future.

"I am confident that Straight Path will gain value by becoming part of the ecosystem at NYU WIRELESS, and it will bring a unique perspective to our centre."

By supporting the centre's research activities, especially its pioneering work in the millimeter wave spectrum, Straight Path, the largest holder of 39GHz spectrum in the US, is spurring research towards creation of a sustainable networked society using broadband wireless devices, networks, and applications.
