NYU Wireless gives away millimeter wave simulator for 5G

Looking to help speed the development of 5G technology related to millimeter wave spectrum, NYU Wireless opened up a channel simulator tool based on the group’s research and experiments. NYU Wireless is a Brooklyn, New York,-based research center focused on next-generation wireless networks and devices; Ted Rappaport serves as the founding director of the institution.

As “5G” technology and standards continue to evolve, millimeter wave is being looked at to support more efficient and high-capacity data transmission. Specifically, the new software supports channel simulation in frequencies ranging from 28 GHz to 73 GHz, with French operator Orange already using the technology.
