Brooklyn is the New Home of 5G

Nokia and the NYU WIRELESS research center at NYU Tandon School of Engineering jointly organized the fourth Brooklyn 5G Summit in Brooklyn, NY held on April 19 - 21, 2017.

The fourth summit built on the achievements of the past three years and panelists and presenters discussed the next steps for making 5G a commercial reality. This year’s summit focused on overall 5G system design across the entire spectrum range, progress in 5G channel modeling and 5G regulatory aspects. In addition, we looked into concrete use cases for 5G in the evolving Internet of Things (IoT) space.

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.”

5G Progress, Realities Set in at Brooklyn 5G Summit

5G technologies are early in their development, and the business cases for them are a bit fuzzy, but wireless researchers and executives still had plenty to celebrate this week at the annual Brooklyn 5G Summit. They’ve made steady progress on defining future 5G networks, and have sped up the schedule for the first phase of standards-based 5G deployments.

At Brooklyn summit, a new world of 5G on display

When we move from 4G wireless to 5G wireless it will be like society having a “digital nervous system limited only by device physics, chemistry, materials and the speed of light.” So, at least, says Dr. Kenneth C. Budka, a senior partner at the consulting arm of the storied Bell Labs (which was acquired by summit co-sponsor Nokia in 2015). Budka, and others who spoke at the event Thursday envisioned a future where cell data is so fast, strong, and quick, that the equivalent of super powered WiFi will be all around us, unconstrained by routers and modems and fiber cable. That vision has a lot of impact for the kinds of technology that could thrive in such an environment.

Lessons that 5G should learn from other technologies

5G development should take to heart a number of lessons that the industry has learned from previous generations of technology, former CTO of the Federal Communications Commission and Columbia University professor Henning Schulzrinne told the audience at last week’s Brooklyn 5G Summit.

Brooklyn 5G Summit 2017 wrap-up

Lauri Oksanen, VP Research and Technology at NSN-Nokia Solutions and Networks gave a nice summary wrap-up of the two-day Brooklyn 5G Summit held at NYU Tandon School of Engineering and co-hosted by NYU WIRELESS and Nokia that ended today on April 21, 2017. Oksanen referenced Dr. Frank Fitzek, TU Dresden, Germany who had commented that first time providers were talking to their customers already. Seizo Onoe, CTO at NTT DoCoMo said that we should all jump on the 5G bandwagon and talk about it. The reason is that 5G can create new business and ecosystems by collaboration between industries and verticals. One excellent example of a benefit is connected cars, which was discussed quite a bit at this summit.

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.

mmWave Dynamic Channel Measurements using Phased Arrays

Dynamic channel measurements and 5G prototyping at 60 GHz are currently being conducted by Ph.D. candidate Chris Slezak under the supervision of postdoc Aditya Dhananjay. Crucial to the project are two SiBeam phased arrays and a flexible National Instruments baseband system, which were purchased with support from a National Science Foundation EAGER grant.

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 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...
