Test-bed will accelerate ultra-fast 5G implementation

A platform to create technologies vital for the millimetre wave (mmWave) radio spectrum is being built by the New York University (NYU) Wireless research centre

The development of mmWave radio spectrum technologies is an imperative to launching the next ultra-high-data-rate generation of wireless communication, or 5G.

The platform is said to be one of the first available to researchers in academia, government and industry who are working on developmental stages of mmWave technology. It will be funded by a National Science Foundation program that supports potentially transformative research.
