NYU WIRELESS Unveils Emulator For 5G Millimeter Wave Systems

NYU WIRELESS has developed what is thought to be the world’s first commercial emulator for 5G millimeter wave (mm-Wave) systems. The emulator differs from the existing paradigm because it performs not only the emulation of the wireless channel, but also of the beamforming antenna arrays on both the transmitter and receiver devices under test (TX and …

NYU Researchers Develop New Paradigm for 5G Emulation

Researchers at CATT and NYU Wireless have built the world’s first wireless emulator suitable for 5G systems that feature massive bandwidths and hundreds of antenna elements. In this unique patent pending design, the solution emulates not only the wireless channel, but also the beamformers (or phased-arrays) on both the transmitter and receiver devices under test (DUTs). This joint emulation …

The Quest Begins to Bring Ultra-speed Wireless Connectivity to First Responders

Researchers met in San Antonio, Texas yesterday to jump-start technology that could enable first responders to relay video in moving ambulances, employ virtual reality in emergencies, receive high-definition images from drones in real time, or control robots in restricted indoor environments too dangerous for humans. Although the technology of ultra-fast fifth-generation, or 5G, wireless communication …
