FCC OKs sweeping Spectrum Frontiers rules to open up nearly 11 GHz of spectrum

In one fell swoop, the FCC today put the U.S. in a 5G leadership position, voting 5-0 to approve its Spectrum Frontiers proceeding and make spectrum bands above 24 GHz available for 5G. FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler, noting his previous remarks on the proceeding, kept his remarks brief to avoid repeating himself. But he summed …

NYU WIRELESS wins NSA Grant for Prototyping on mmWave Phased Arrays

As the 5G standardization process gathers momentum, it is increasingly clear that millimeter wave (mmWave) frequencies of above 30GHz will play a critical role in overcoming the spectrum crunch in the traditional 4G bands. In addition to the enormous amounts of spectrum available in these bands, the small wavelengths in mmWave signals enable both the …
