This month marks the fifth anniversary of the launch of NYU WIRELESS, a multidisciplinary research center founded in 2012 to develop the fundamental theories and techniques for next-generation mass-deployable wireless devices across a wide range of applications and markets.

NYU WIRELESS Celebrates Five Years of Pioneering Research into Making 5G Communications a Reality
George MacCartney, Jr., an electrical engineering doctoral student at NYU Tandon and a researcher at NYU WIRELESS, conducts millimeter wave testing on the school's Downtown Brooklyn, New York, site. Researchers at NYU WIRELESS were the first to demonstrate that the spectrum held promise for communications in dense urban environments.

In the years that followed, it has become central to the remarkably rapid adoption of technologies that promise to deliver broadband speed to wireless communication, thereby holding great promise for smart devices, autonomous cars, medical applications, and Wi-Fi for remote regions.
