NYU Wireless research centre to make its 5G channel simulator open source

New York University is making its channel model simulator and measurement data free and open to all, which could reduce the development time of millimetre wave (mmW) technologies for companies looking to use these higher frequencies in 5G-compliant systems. The work on mmW technology and propogation is being undertaken at NYU Wireless, a multi-disciplinary academic research centre based in the New York University’s Brooklyn engineering facility.

The announcement was made this morning by NYU Wireless founder Ted Rappaport at a Federal Communications Commission workshop on 5G wireless technology.
