How one NYU research team is tackling 5G emulation

Testing and verifying designs for millimeter-wave prototypes is an ongoing challenge for the industry as it moves into 5G. Engineers need to understand how 5G mmwave prototypes will behave in a wide range of challenge propagation scenarios, which is typically accomplished through an emulation approach. A research team at the New York University Tandon School …

Massive MIMO Originator Joins NYU WIRELESS

We are very pleased to welcome Tom Marzetta as a faculty member of NYU WIRELESS. An IEEE Fellow who was previously with Bell Labs, Tom is renowned for originating massive MIMO (multiple-input multiple-output) technology. Massive MIMO utilizes numerous small, individually controlled, low-power antennas to direct streams of information, selectively and simultaneously, to many users. This …

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 …
