Samsung, AT&T  Join NYU WIRELESS

January 31, 2019

Samsung has joined NYU WIRELESS, a leading research center in the Tandon School of Engineering, as its 14th industrial affiliate member. Professor Tom Marzetta, associate director of NYU WIRELESS and originator of the 5th Generation wireless technology Massive MIMO, will be the technical point of contact within NYU WIRELESS. In his research at the center, Marzetta is exploring new concepts beyond Massive MIMO.

“NYU WIRELESS is one of the world’s top University programs in wireless research with a strong track record of pioneering research on 5G,” said Charlie Zhang, vice president, Samsung Research America, and head of its standards and mobility innovation lab. “Samsung Research America is excited to join NYU WIRELESS, as we believe close collaborations between academia and industry leaders are the key to sustained innovation for the future of 5G and beyond.”

“It is very gratifying to have Samsung, a world leader in wireless, rejoin our research center, and to have the personal involvement and expertise of Dr. Zhang and his colleagues on our board of directors,” added NYU WIRELESS director Professor Theodore (Ted) S. Rappaport. “Samsung was a founding Industrial Affiliate member of NYU WIRELESS when we first launched our center in 2012, when few knew that millimeter waves would be a crucial component of massive broadband wireless networks.”

Also, AT&T has rejoined the NYU WIRELESS research center at the New York University Tandon School of Engineering. AT&T is the research center’s 13th industrial affiliate partner.

“We’re excited to rejoin NYU WIRELESS this year and work with the research center on next generation and innovative projects in V2X as well as positioning and sensing technologies in the coming year,” said Fuetsch.

“We are delighted to have AT&T, one of America’s leading carriers and a true visionary in 5G, rejoining our research center,” added NYU WIRELESS director Prof. Theodore (Ted) Rappaport. “We welcome the personal involvement and expertise of AT&T’s top researchers within our center and on our board of directors. We are looking forward to a deep technical bond with AT&T and are eager to give them access to our best students and ideas.”
