Brooklyn is the New Home of 5G

Nokia and the NYU WIRELESS research center at NYU Tandon School of Engineering are jointly organizing the fifth Brooklyn 5G Summit in Brooklyn, NY was held on April 24 - 27, 2018.

The fifth summit will build on the achievements of the past four years and panelists and presenters will discuss the next steps for making 5G a commercial reality. This year’s summit focus is on overall 5G system design across the entire spectrum range, progress in 5G channel modeling and 5G regulatory aspects. In addition, we will look into concrete use cases for 5G in the evolving Internet of Things (IoT) space.

Nokia, DoCoMo to demo 5G NR at 90 GHz during Brooklyn 5G Summit

Nokia is collaborating with NTT DoCoMo to demonstrate 5G New Radio (5G NR) enhancements at 90 GHz during the Brooklyn 5G Summit this week.

The duo will apply a Nokia Bell Labs-developed compact millimeter wave phased-array antenna system scalable up to 256-elements using an RFIC solution to enable multi-gigabit per second speeds. The test will demonstrate how using 5G NR enhancements at higher mmWave frequency bands can manage radio complexity and a larger number of antenna beams while enabling greater bandwidth.

The 5G wireless revolution will come, if your city council doesn’t block it first

The excitement around 5G is palpable at the Brooklyn 5G Summit this week, and for good reason. Once the province of academic engineers, there is increasingly a consensus emerging among technology leaders that millimeter-wave technology is ready for prime time.

Yet there remain large barriers to a successful rollout, particularly at the local government level. Those challenges could prevent the U.S. from aggressively competing with other nations like China, which are investing massive resources to lead this next generation of wireless technology.

Phased Arrays Move From Academic Curiosity to Industrial Reality

At the Brooklyn 5G Summit this week, a panel of leading researchers in 5G phased-array technology discussed its commercial status. The key question: Had phased arrays moved largely away from an academic pursuit to become an industrial concern?

Phased-array antennas, in which radio waves can be steered electronically in a desired direction, have become a key technology for 5G networks. The rapid development of this technology over the last five to 10 years appears to be one of the primary reasons why 5G is still on track for commercial rollout by 2020.

T-Mobile’s 5G Plan Encompasses Far More Than Millimeter Waves

Karri Kuoppamaki began his talk on Wednesday at the Brooklyn 5G Summit by discussing T-Mobile’s LTE network, an apparent anachronism. Or, as he put it, “Why am I talking about LTE? This isn’t the Brooklyn LTE Summit.”

But Kouppamaki, the Vice President of Radio Network Technology Development and Strategy for T-Mobile, had a good reason to spend the first portion of his talk discussing the current generation of wireless tech: Despite the radical departures 5G promises for network infrastructure and data rates, it will still be built on existing networks.

Brooklyn 5G Summit: Network Slicing & Edge Computing Gain Importance

The fifth annual Brooklyn 5G Summit took place on April 25 and 26 at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering. Those of us not able to attend in person could watch it all through IEEEtv. The two days of presentations and panels highlighted 5G's many aspects that included the technology — 5G New Radio (5GNR) to millimeter-wave (mmWave) — to the business use cases needed to make 5G a success.

The 2017 Brooklyn 5G Summit Affirmed Tandon’s Role As A Research Leader In Next-Generation Communication

It isn’t hyperbole to refer to what’s happening in fifth-generation (5G) wireless communications as a revolution — and one that is actually very close at hand — according to Kenneth C. Budka of Nokia Bell Labs. Budka, who is one of the driving forces behind the global adoption of commercial wireless broadband technologies for public safety communications, gave a keynote address. “It took just 25 years — the span of a single human generation — to progress through four generations of wireless,” he explained. “And 5G has the power to transform human existence over the next human generation.”
