NYU Wireless Stern School of Business Land Cellular Networking Grant

NYU Wireless, a multi-disciplinary research center, and the New York University (NYU) Stern School of Business, have been awarded a four-year, $750,000 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to research the millimeter wave (mmWave) wireless networking spectrum and related economic and business models and policies.
