NYU Wireless To Build Test Bed for 5G

NYU Wireless, New York University's multidisciplinary academic research center for wireless networking theories and techniques, is building an advanced programmable platform to support the development of millimeter wave (mmWave) wireless communication, also known as 5G.

5G is the next generation of cellular networking technology and has the potential to support data connection speeds exceeding 10 gigabits per second (Gbps), a thousand times faster than current 4G data rates. The mmWave spectrum could also "provide 200 times the capacity of all of today's cellular spectrum allocations," according to a news release from NYU Tandon School of Engineering.
