NYU Wireless gets partner in race to 5G

5G research could include millimeter wave spectrum

As the feds consider how high-frequency spectrum could figure into future telecom networks, researchers at NYU Wireless have joined with SiBeam in an effort to develop 5G cellular technology.

SiBeam, the Sunnyvale, Calif.-based research and development arm of Silicon Image, joins Huawei, Samsung, L3 and others in sponsoring the work at NYU Wireless.

“It is exciting to have SiBeam join our board of industrial affiliate sponsors, and we look forward to working closely to improve knowledge and capabilities of millimeter-wave technologies,”  NYU Wireless Director and Founder Ted Rappaport said.
