Eric­s­son In­cor­po­rated has an­nounced its part­ner­ship with New York Univer­sity Cen­ter to un­der­take a re­search on a new gen­er­a­tion of wire­less tech­nolo­gies, also known as “5G.”

The re­search work which is be­ing an­chored at the New York Univer­sity’s Polytech­nic School of En­gi­neer­ing, which launched NYU WIRE­LESS in Au­gust2012,will­fo­cu­son­mass-de­ploy­ablewire­less de­vices across a wide range of ap­pli­ca­tions and mar­kets. NYU WIRE­LESS was the first univer­sity cen­ter­to­com­binewire­less,com­put­ing,andmed­i­cal ap­pli­ca­tions re­search.

NYU WIRE­LESS com­prised more than 20 fac­ulty mem­bers and 100 grad­u­ate stu­dents from the NYU School of En­gi­neer­ing Elec­tri­cal and Com­puter En­gi­neer­ing Depart­ment, NYU’s Courant In­sti­tute of Math­e­mat­i­cal Sci­ences, and the NYU Lan­gone School of Medicine.

NYU WIRE­LESS Di­rec­tor and founder, Pro­fes­sor Theodore (Ted) Rap­pa­port, said: “We are pleased to have Eric­s­son join the NYU WIRE­LESS in­dus­trial af­fil­i­ate pro­gramme and wel­come its par­tic­i­pa­tion. Our stu­dents will ben­e­fit from work­ing along­side this global in­no­va­tor and leader in net­work in­fra­struc­ture tech­nol­ogy and wire­less ser­vices.”

Di­rec­tor of Wire­less Ac­cess Net­works Re­search at Eric­s­son Re­search, Dr. Magnus Frodigh stated: “We see NYU Wire­less as an im­por­tant part­ner in the re­search to­wards the de­vel­op­ment of global 5G stan­dards. Academia and in­dus­try are cur­rently ramp­ing up the re­search ef­forts, and we ex­pect that the col­lab­o­ra­tion with NYU WIRE­LESS stu­dents and fac­ulty will not only con­trib­ute with solid re­search re­sults, but also gen­er­ate cre­ativ­ity, in­sights and re­quire­ments from the highly dy­namic and in­no­va­tive U.S. wire­less mar­ket­place.”
