NYU WIRELESS to make key 5G software free and open to all

In his keynote speech at a Federal Communications Commission workshop on 5G wireless technology, pioneering researcher Theodore (Ted) Rappaport announced that New York University is making its channel model simulator and measurement data free and open to all—potentially short-circuiting years of millimeter wave (mmWave) development time for companies hoping to vastly increase the transfer of data through the air.

NYU WIRELESS and NYU Stern School of Business awarded grant to study mmWave networks

The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded a four-year, $750,000 grant to NYU WIRELESS and the NYU Stern School of Business to evaluate the engineering and economic aspects of millimeter wave (mmWave) spectrum and resource management. The mmWave bands are a promising new set of frequencies for next-generation cellular networks that offer orders of magnitude increased data rates relative to current 4G systems. The goal of the grant is to develop new technologies, economic models, and spectrum policy to realize the full potential of these bands.

NYU WIRELESS researchers call for reformed safety standards for wireless devices

In June 2015 the researchers—NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering doctoral student Ting Wu, NYU WIRELESS director Theodore “Ted” Rappaport, and Christopher Collins, a professor of radiology at the NYU Langone School of Medicine—published “The Human Body and Millimeter-Wave Wireless Communication Systems: Interactions and Implications,” detailing their study, which used four models representing different body parts (both clothed and unclothed) to evaluate the thermal effects of mmWave radiation on humans.
