US Ignite's Advanced Wireless Consortium Looks Beyond 5G

US Ignite, which is a non-profit organization inspired by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy and the National Science Foundation, has formed a new Advanced Wireless Industry Consortium "to help align and focus US efforts to exploit new wireless technologies beyond 5G."

The group is aiming to speed up the transfer rate of breakthrough ideas from university research to industry end users, overcoming what is sometimes called the “valley of death” between basic research and commercialization. Big breakthroughs of 1000X are targeted in areas such as millimeter wave (mmWave), dynamic spectrum, 5G+ architecture, and wide-area white space – all areas in which the US will need to excel to sustain its leadership in the global wireless industry.

The Consortium includes 21 companies and organizations: ATIS (Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions), ATT, Carlson Wireless Technologies, CommScope, CTIA, HTC, Intel, InterDigital, Juniper Networks, Keysight Technologies, National Instruments, Nokia Bell Laboratories, Oracle, Qualcomm, Samsung, Shared Spectrum, Sprint, TIA (Telecom Industry Association), T-Mobile, Verizon, and Viavi Solutions.
