NYU Wireless

NYU and NYU-Poly have created several new faculty positions, have invested $3.5 Million in funding, and are providing an additional $4 Million in world-class research space upgrades to form a new center of excellence, NYU WIRELESS, the first academic center of its kind in the world.

NYU WIRELESS is an interdisciplinary research center that is equipped to develop revolutionary circuits and systems for several business sectors, including the wireless industry, the distributed computing and data center industry, and the medical profession. NYU WIRELESS brings together faculty and students with expertise in millimeter wave wireless communications and circuits, distributed networking and computing, and many branches of medicine. Just launched this year, already there are 24 faculty and 100 graduate and undergraduate students participating in this new interdisciplinary center.

NYU WIRELESS conducts about $10 million/year in funded research, and allows its industrial affiliates to maximize the value of their investment by leveraging industrial affiliates funds with large NSF, NIH, and other competitive research programs. NYU WIRELESS affiliates enjoy close and frequent interaction with the center’s faculty and students, who come from NYU-Poly’s Electrical and Computer engineering department, NYU’s Courant Computer Science department, and many different branches of NYU’s Langone School of Medicine.

A frequency is not a network

Millimeter waves and generally radio frequencies above 6 GHz are increasingly recommended for 5G wireless applications. Much of the recent IWPC white paper on 5G (, and April’s Brooklyn 5G Summit ( hosted by NSN at New York University’s wireless research center have been concerned with the use of frequencies above 6 GHz, perhaps wellContinue Reading
