Test system developer NI has joined the university research centre at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering in New York as an Industrial Affiliate member to look at the next generation of 6G technologies.
NI and NYU WIRELESS successfully collaborated on 5G technology in 2012 and have extended the partnership with other Industrial Affiliate members to 6G wireless research.
One of the goals of 6G is to further expand total network capacity and as an Industrial Affiliate member, NI’s primary involvement will be focused on research into terahertz (THz) frequencies — exploring under-utilized spectrum, solving problems associated with it, and helping 6G communication come to fruition. Additionally, NI will gain instant access to extensive research results as well as faculty and graduate students.
“Because of our successful collaboration with NYU Wireless in 5G we’re excited to work together once again to accelerate the next generation of wireless,” said Charles Schroeder, technology fellow at NI. “THz and sub-THz frequencies remain a critical technology for 6G, one that we’re eager to research and explore. And with that, we look forward to delivering prototyping and test solutions that will help enable our customers to innovate and turn 6G ideas into reality.”
“The support and feedback of our Industrial Affiliate members is crucial to helping us conduct next-generation wireless research,” said Thomas Marzetta, professor and director of NYU Wireless. “NI has been a trusted member in the past, and we are grateful for their renewed support.”
NI is actively engaged in research for topics such as joint communication sensing, artificial intelligence and machine learning, terahertz/sub-THz and extreme MIMO. NYU Wireless is one of several research collaborators NI is working with to drive the next generation of wireless technology forward and advance hardware and software for wireless testing.
