Ericsson Joins NYU Wireless' 5G Project

Ericsson announced a partnership with New York University's Polytechnic School of Engineering to develop 5G technologies.

The NYU WIRELESS program, which was launched by the university in 2012, combines wireless, computing, and medical applications research. It includes more than 20 faculty members and 100 graduate students from the NYU School of Engineering Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, NYU’s Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, and the NYU Langone School of Medicine.  Ericsson has now joined the program as an affiliate sponsor.

"We are pleased to have Ericsson join the NYU WIRELESS industrial affiliate program and welcome its participation," said Professor Theodore (Ted) Rappaport, NYU WIRELESS Director and founder. "Our students will benefit from working alongside this global innovator and leader in network infrastructure technology and wireless services." Rappaport holds the David Lee/Ernst Weber Chair in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department of the NYU School of Engineering, as well as appointments at Courant and the department of Radiology at NYU Langone Medical Center.

Last year, NYU WIRELESS completed its move into 13,500 square feet of world-class research space on the grounds of the NYU School of Engineering in downtown Brooklyn.


  • Other companies participating in NYU Wireless include AT&T, Huawei, Intel, L3, National Instrument, NSN, Samsung, and Qualcomm.
