Brooklyn 5G Summit to Fuel the Next Generation of Lightning-Fast Mobile Communications

BROOKLYN, New York, April 18, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Leaders in wireless, automotive, healthcare, academia and government will gather at the third annual Brooklyn 5G SummitApril 20-22, 2016 to explore and showcase the latest developments and research aimed at making 5G a commercial reality in telecommunications, machine-to-machine communication, and the Internet of Things (IoT).

The invitation-only summit, at New York University'sTandon School of Engineering, is jointly organized by NYU WIRELESS and Nokia, and will be live streamed by the IEEE Communications Society. The event features leaders from companies including Nokia, Verizon, DoCoMo, Intel, Qualcomm, T-Mobile, and Vodafone, as well as the Federal Communications Commission and the Scripps Clinic and Research Institute.

"This is a watershed moment for 5G wireless," said Theodore (Ted) S. Rappaport, the Ernst Weber/David Lee professor of electrical engineering at NYU Tandon and founder and director of NYU WIRELESS. "We are in the midst of a dramatic increase not only in the sheer number of mobile smart devices, wearables, and machine-to-machine connections, but also in sheer volume of the data traffic these and other IoT devices are generating. With multi-gigabit-per-second mobile communications nearing reality, this is an exciting time for the wireless industry, and we are pleased to play a major role as a convener and producer of basic knowledge to bring wireless into its Renaissance over the next several years."

NYU WIRELESS conducted the world's first radio channel measurements that proved that the millimeter-wave (mmWave) spectrum holds vast potential to improve wireless communications – to perhaps 1,000 times the capacity and many times the speed of 4G LTE. The need is acute. A new report by Bell Labs Consulting, a division of Nokia Bell Labs research, estimates that by 2020 global consumption demand for digital content and services on mobile and portable devices will increase an average of 30 to 45 times from 2014 levels — with some markets...
