NYU WIRELESS Founder Comments on FCC Race Toward 6G Wireless Communications

On March 15, 2019, the Federal Communications Commission began considering opening up a new spectrum of radio waves that researchers believe could become integral to the sixth generation of wireless communications (6G) as part of the never-ending quest to send more data more quickly over the air.  The FCC chairman invited the researcher who …

FCC moves to open spectrum above 95 GHz for new technologies

The FCC unanimously voted to adopt new rules related to the spectrum above 95 GHz that encourage the development of new technologies—and may even lead to 6G. Once thought to be more or less useless—similar to how much of the industry used to think of the millimeter wave spectrum that’s now being deployed for 5G—these …

Microwave Journal: Interview with Prof. Theodore (Ted) Rappaport of NYU WIRELESS

Verizon deployed mmWave fixed wireless access service late last year in Sacramento (CA) as one of their pilot cities. Recently, Earl Lum surveyed the location of most of the access points and determined their coverage would be marginal and thus results were probably not that great due to the location of many of them – …
