NYU Wireless: Engineering Research Looks Beyond 5G

Recently, I had the opportunity to visit NYU Wireless and talk to Founding Director Theodore Rappaport. Rappaport took myself and Chris DeMartino (technology editor for Electronic Design's sister brand, Microwaves & RF) for a tour around the labs to see the various projects underway, as well as to meet the team of researchers working under his supervision. Before the tour, I spoke to him about the advances that are underway regarding wireless communications, and what the future holds for this area. 

Rappaport foresees mobile communication systems operating in frequencies higher than 100GHz.
