AT&T and Samsung Electronics joined 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.

AT&T Labs Chief Technology Officer and President Andre Fuetsch will be a featured keynote speaker at the sixth annual Brooklyn 5G Summit in April.

"We're excited to rejoin NYU WIRELESS this year and work with the research center on next-generation and innovative projects in V2X (vehicle to everything), 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," said NYU WIRELESS director and professor 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."

Samsung Research America, a wholly owned subsidiary of Samsung Electronics, also joined the research center as its 14th industrial affiliate member. Professor Tom Marzetta, associate director of NYU WIRELESS and originator of the 5G wireless technology massive multiple input multiple output (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."

Samsung was a founding industrial affiliate member of NYU WIRELESS when the center launched in 2012.
