Stern and NYU Wireless Receive NSF Grant for 5G Research

The NYU Stern School of Business and NYU Wireless have received a grant from the National Science Foundation. This four-year, $750,000 grant from NSF will go toward research in to the millimeter wave (mmWave) wireless networking spectrum and related business policies and models. The research will focus on business-related questions that will arise with the development of mmWave or 5G. The research will help businesses to determine how the new networking would be used and how the new technology will be used by businesses and regulated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

NYU Wireless is an academic research center at NYU’s Brooklyn engineering location. The center works to create fundamental theories and techniques for the next generation of wireless devices. The new 5G frequency bands have the potential to support cellular data connections at speeds exceeding 10 gigabits per second, which is a thousand times faster than current 4G rates.

NYU’s Tandon School of Engineering stated in a press release that the research in to the new network development will help to develop the next wave of standards. “Given the size and importance of the global cellular industry, estimated at more than $1 trillion, the research that will be conducted in this project has the potential to shape the evolution of spectrum policy.”

NYU Wireless has already been involved in the development of mmWave systems. The grant and NYU Wirless’s partners will work together to develop more research and grow business support for the new wireless development.
