NI Joins NYU Wireless Industrial Affiliates Program to Advance 6G Research and Innovation

April 26, 2021

NI and NYU WIRELESS announced that NI has joined the university research center at NYU Tandon School of Engineering as an Industrial Affiliate member. Together, the organizations will work to solve industry-defined problems to help make the next generation of wireless research possible.

NI and NYU WIRELESS successfully collaborated on 5G technology in 2012. Now, they’re working together again, alongside Industrial Affiliate members, to conduct wireless research. One of the goals of 6G is to further expand total network capacity and as an Industrial Affiliate member, NI’s primary involvement will be focused on research into THz frequencies—exploring under-utilized spectrum, solving problems associated with it, and helping 6G communication come to fruition. Additionally, NI will gain instant access to extensive research results as well as faculty and graduate students who are pushing the boundaries of the spectrum frontier.

NYU WIRELESS’ Industrial Affiliates program provides an important avenue for industry-academia collaboration, enhancing the advancement of precompetitive research that builds the foundation of future wireless communication networks. NYU WIRELESS provides its Industrial Affiliate members with access to internationally recognized research, a high-quality pipeline of engineering talent, and members-only seminars and events.

“Because of our successful collaboration with NYU WIRELESS in 5G we’re excited to work together once again to accelerate the next generation of wireless,” said Charles Schroeder, technology fellow at NI. “THz and sub-THz frequencies remain a critical technology for 6G, one that we’re eager to research and explore. And with that, we look forward to delivering prototyping and test solutions that will help enable our customers to innovate and turn 6G ideas into reality.”

“The support and feedback of our Industrial Affiliate members is crucial to helping us conduct next-generation wireless research,” said Thomas Marzetta, professor and director of NYU WIRELESS. “NI has been a trusted member in the past, and we are grateful for their renewed support.”
