NI has joined NYU WIRELESS, the university research center at NYU Tandon School of Engineering as an Industrial Affiliate member. Together, the organizations will work to solve industry-defined problems to help make the next generation of wireless research possible.
NI and NYU WIRELESS successfully collaborated on 5G technology in 2012. Now, they’re working together again, alongside Industrial Affiliate members, to conduct wireless research. One of the goals of 6G is to further expand total network capacity and as an Industrial Affiliate member, NI’s primary involvement will be focused on research into terahertz (THz) frequencies — exploring under-utilized spectrum, solving problems associated with it, and helping 6G communication come to fruition. Additionally, NI will gain instant access to extensive research results as well as faculty and graduate students who are pushing the boundaries of the spectrum frontier.
NYU WIRELESS’ Industrial Affiliates program provides an important avenue for industry-academia collaboration, enhancing the advancement of precompetitive research that builds the foundation of future wireless communication networks.
“Because of our successful collaboration with NYU WIRELESS in 5G we’re excited to work together once again to accelerate the next generation of wireless,” said Charles Schroeder, Technology Fellow at NI. “THz and sub-THz frequencies remain a critical technology for 6G, one that we’re eager to research and explore. And with that, we look forward to delivering prototyping and test solutions that will help enable our customers to innovate and turn 6G ideas into reality.”
NYU WIRELESS is one of the world’s leading research centers in the field of telecommunications, with a strong track record of important advances that are the bedrock of all global 5G wireless networks. NYU WIRELESS provides its Industrial Affiliate members with access to internationally recognized research, a high-quality pipeline of engineering talent, and members-only seminars and events.
“The support and feedback of our Industrial Affiliate members is crucial to helping us conduct next-generation wireless research,” said Thomas Marzetta, Professor and Director of NYU WIRELESS. “NI has been a trusted member in the past, and we are grateful for their renewed support.”
NI is committed to the advancement of the next generation of wireless standards and is actively engaged in research for topics such as joint communication sensing, artificial intelligence and machine learning, terahertz/sub-THz and extreme MIMO. NYU WIRELESS is one of several research collaborators NI is working with to drive the next generation of wireless technology forward and advance hardware and software for wireless testing. In doing so, NI continues its mission to Engineer Ambitiously, driving 6G research before 6G standards are officially defined.
