TEDxMiddlebury: The Future is Bright. And Wireless.

How to explain the evolution of wireless communications toward 5G and beyond to a non-technical audience? And what does this mean to the average consumer? NYU WIRELESS postdoc Marco Mezzavilla recently tackled these questions with finesse in his TEDx talk at Middlebury College, where he unveiled the magic of telecommunications and its impact on society, starting from the Victorian telegraph and the first underwater cable dated 1850.

Improved Network Performance Over 5G mmWave Cellular

In this project we aim at designing a transport layer protocol optimized for the mmWave access network, and for the new class of applications that it will enable, aiming to work seamlessly across a connection consisting of both wireline and wireless segments. In our recent ICC paper submission “The Bufferbloat Problem over Intermittent Multi-Gbps mmWave Links”, we have proposed a simple approach to solve some of the major issues related to TCP over mmWave that we observed in our previous publication: “Transport layer performance in 5G mmWave cellular”. Our solution, namely Dynamic RW, delivers high throughput while guaranteeing low latency, as shown in the figure below. The good news is that it does not require any modification of the TCP protocol.

Millimeter Waves Travel More Than 10 Kilometers in Rural Virginia 5G Experiment

A key 5G technology got an important test over the summer in an unlikely place. In August, a group of students from New York University packed up a van full of radio equipment and drove for ten hours to the rural town of Riner in southwest Virginia. Once there, they erected a transmitter on the front porch of the mountain home of their professor, Ted Rappaport, and pointed it out over patches of forest toward a blue-green horizon.

5 Academic Institutions Building 5G Technology

It’s likely that 5G, the term used to describe the next-generation of mobile networks, will be a complicated mish-mash of technologies. Some of the 5G vision includes existing technologies like LTE and LTE-Advanced Pro, self-organizing networks (SON), software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV). But 5G will also likely include lesser-known technologies like massive multiple-in and multiple-out (MIMO) antenna arrays, millimeter (mmWave) high frequency spectrum, and distributed cloud architectures.

Industry Visionary: Q&A

On July 14, 2016 the FCC adopted new rules for wireless broadband operations above 24 GHz, making the U.S. the first country to make this spectrum available and leapfrogging other nations in the race for 5G mmWave technology. We thought this was a perfect time to talk with Theodore (Ted) Rappaport, Professor at NYU and the Founding Director of NYU Wireless, who was the first to prove that mmWave technologies were viable for cellular communications.

5G mmWave Communications Training Course

This 2-day online course, previously recorded by IEEE Com Soc, covers the fundamental communications, circuits, antennas and propagation issues surrounding emerging 60 GHz wireless LAN and mmWave cellular/backhaul applications. The course was developed and delivered by Professor Theodore (Ted) Rappaport, a pioneering researcher and educator in mmWave wireless communications, wireless systems and radio propagation and founder of NYU WIRELESS. It closely follows his textbook, "Millimeter Wave Wireless Communications," by T. Rappaport, R.W. Heath, R. Daniels and J. Murdock which is bundled with this course as an eBook download. In addition, class notes are provided as a pdf download with more than 300 pages of information. The course can be played at your own pace and stopped/repeated at any point since it is in video format with one file for each day.

5G Wireless Well Within Reach

5G Wireless Well Within Reach

Brooklyn is now widely accepted within the telecommunications industry as a major hub of 5G wireless research, and the credit goes wholly to NYU WIRELESS. The multidisciplinary academic research center has been at the forefront of investigating the millimeter-wave (mm-Wave) spectrum and making fifth-generation wireless a commercial reality, and now, industry leaders predict that consumers will be seeing the results by 2017.

In late April, those industry leaders were among the attendees of the third annual Brooklyn 5G Summit, organized by NYU WIRELESS and Nokia. The invitation-only event — acknowledged as the premiere such gathering in the world — drew not only luminaries from AT&T, Verizon, Japanese carrier NTT DoCoMo, Vodafone, and other industry giants, but academic researchers from around the globe. Some 3,000 viewers who did not attend in person watched via live stream, thanks to the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers’ IEEE TV...
