I had the opportunity to speak at the IEEE sponsored 5G World Forum last week in Santa Clara. My talk focused on areas of research not necessarily related to the current 5G specification or 3GPP Release 15. The purpose of my presentation was not to rehash 5G, but to instead highlight areas that will help 5G reach its potential.
The National Science Foundation (NSF), along with an industry consortium of 28 networking companies and associations that includes NI, announced the first two Platforms for Advanced Wireless Research (PAWR) initiative awards. The two platforms will be led by teams from the University of Utah, Rice University, NYU, and Rutgers University.
