NYU Wireless Adds New Partner for 5G Wireless Research

NYU Wireless, New York University's multidisciplinary academic research center for wireless networking theories and techniques, has partnered with SiBEAM, a developer of intelligent millimeter-wave technologies for wireless communications, to advance research in 5G wireless technologies. SiBEAM is NYU Wireless's 13th industrial-affiliate sponsor.

5G technology uses the millimeter-wave (mmWave) radio spectrum and has the potential to increase mobile data capacity by a thousand times or more over current technology, according to information from NYU Wireless and SIBEAM. Researchers at NYU Wireless have been working to create the fundamental science and math channel models needed to develop 5G equipment, and the partnership will enable NYU Wireless to take advantage of SiBEAM's expertise in mmWave semiconductor products.
