The number of smartphone users around the world climbed to about 1.75 billion this year, and that number is expected to rise rapidly in the next three years as the phones’ prices drop, according to a report by eMarketer, a market research firm. Add to that the billions of sensor-embedded devices expected to be connected to the Internet of Things (IoT), and it’s easy to see why the current wireless network might soon have difficulty bearing the load.Source: theinstitute.ieee.org
With more than 50,000 members, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Communications Society is one of the largest and most active of all the organization’s subgroups, and since its founding in 1952, it has become the major international forum for the exchange of ideas on communications and information networking. Its International Conference on Communications (ICC) is widely acknowledged as the world’s leading venue dedicated to the advancement of wireless and wireline communications and its speakers to be among the most renowned in their fields.Source: NYUWIRELESS.com
If you had any doubts that Brooklyn was fast becoming one of the hottest locales in the tech industry, look no further than the 5G Summit, held from April 23 to 25 at the New York University Polytechnic School of Engineering. Co-organized by the NYU WIRELESS research center and Nokia, the conference, planned to be an annual event from now on, brought together industry leaders from across academia, business and government to explore the future of Fifth Generationâ€”more commonly called 5Gâ€”wireless technology.Source: NYUWIRELESS.com
What is 5G? – that is what the Brooklyn 5G Summit is trying to answer by bringing together many of the leading companies and researchers in the wireless communications industry to share their latest research results and thoughts on the subject. From the semiconductor level (like Intel, Qualcomm and UC San Diego) to channel modeling (like NYU WIRELESS, University of Bristol, Nokia and Ericsson) to network providers (like China Mobile and AT&T), the whole mobile communications ecosystem was covered at this first time event. Professor Ted Rappaport, who formed NYU WIRELESS which has quickly become a leader in mmWave communications research, hosted this first of its kind event along with Nokia Solutions and Networks (and the NYU WIRELESS affiliate companies).Source: Microwave Journal
Mobile operators want a way to keep urban users happy as they get more thirsty for data, and a professor in New York City thinks he’s found what they’re looking for.
Today’s Wireless World has recognized NYU WIRELESS director Prof. Ted Rappaport as a Top 100 Wireless Technology Experts for 2014. Prof. Rappaport was one of three professors who made the list, consisting of technology innovators and business leaders all across the wireless ecosystem, from wireless communications, phones, broadband cards, and virtually everything in between.
The highlight of the Top 100 Wireless Technology Experts is the first of an annual three-part series, which also will highlight the Top 100 Wireless Technology Providers and the Top 100 Wireless Technology Resources later this year.
5G Spectrum Needed, Says Expert
US regulators need to open up licensing of millimeter wave bands to make way for a coming renaissance in wireless, according to a leading researcher.Theodore Rappaport foresees networks using 28 to 90 GHz bands to deliver several Gbits/second to tomorrow's mobile devices. The wireless research center he runs at NYU Polytechnic is testing out such ideas, but a broader effort is needed, he said. eetimes.com
