Sprint Joins NYU Wireless for Mobile 5G Development
Wednesday, May 24, 2017 | Comments

NYU Wireless and Sprint announced they are working together to further development of mobile 5G technology. Sprint joined the university research center at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering as an industry affiliate sponsor.

As an industry affiliate, Sprint will gain early access to NYU Wireless’ internationally recognized research, work with students and faculty on 5G-oriented projects and have access to a ready pipeline of engineering talent. Sprint will also contribute technical expertise on network design, use cases and architecture requirements for core and radio access 5G networks and the devices that will access them.

Sprint, Qualcomm Technologies and SoftBank recently agreed to develop technologies for mobile 5G, including the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) New Radio (NR) standard in Band 41 (2.5 GHz) for accelerated wide-scale 5G deployments. The companies plan to provide commercial services and devices in late 2019. The announcement builds on Sprint's demonstration last year, when it showcased 5G at a large-scale public event, the Copa America Centenario soccer tournament, using 15 GHz and 73 GHz spectrum.

"We're focused on delivering mobile 5G in late 2019 using our 2.5 GHz spectrum to provide broad nationwide 5G coverage with millimeter wave bands serving as high-capacity, high-throughput hot spots," said Dr. Ron Marquardt, vice president of technology, Sprint. "Our work with NYU Wireless will be instrumental for practical use of this spectrum and ensuring strong integration between these bands."
