Ericsson, NY varsity wireless partner to develop 5G MobileTech
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.”
