NYU Wireless to Build 5G Programmable Platform with NSF Funding

The NYU Wireless research center announced it will build an advanced programmable platform to rapidly design, prototype and validate technologies vital for the millimeter wave (mmWave) radio spectrum, potentially key to launching the next ultra-high data rate generation of wireless communications.

Funded by a National Science Foundation (NSF) program that supports exploratory work on potentially transformative research, the platform will be one of the first of its kind available to researchers from academia, government and industry who are driving the early stages of mmWave 5G technology.
