NYU Wireless just got a big-time donation from a corporate patron to continue its work in developing 5G wireless technology.
The donation comes in the form of nearly $1 million of equipment which will allow researchers to be better able to test, rather than just simulate some experiments, from Texas-based, billion-dollar company National Instruments (NI).
“NYU Wireless and NI have had a long and productive working relationship as NI was a founding sponsor of our wireless center in 2012,” said professor Ted Rappaport, founding director of NYU Wireless at NYU Tandon.
