NYU WIRELESS is a leader in understanding mmWave propagation. Our early measurements in New York City provided the world’s first demonstrations of the feasibility of micro- and pico-cellular mmWave networks in dense urban environments. Statistical channel models derived from these measurements have been widely used by many academic and industrial groups working in the mmWave space. One goal of our research is to continue the development of spatial and temporal statistical channel models from extensive measurement campaigns in both indoor and outdoor environments.
