"Wireless Communications Above 100 GHz and 5G and Beyond"
Professor, Associate Director NYU Wireless
NYU Tandon School of Engineering
Fifth Generation (5G) wireless systems being deployed today are leveraging high frequency millimeter wave (mmWave) bands for new massive data and low latency connectivity services. The success of these systems is attracting interest in moving to even higher frequencies above 100 GHz for both communications and sensing, and are being actively considered for beyond 5G and 6G systems.
The vast frequencies above 100 GHz offer even greater bandwidths than the mmWave systems in use today, but also present formidable design challenges in the underlying circuits, radio propagation, and computational processing requirements. In this talk, I will present some recent research of our group to realistically assess the value of such systems and tackle some of the most significant obstacles. The work includes new machine learning methods for channel modeling, circuit and signal processing techniques for low power consumption, and potential use cases for navigation, unmanned aerial vehicles, and robotics.
Sundeep Rangan received the B.A.Sc. at the University of Waterloo, Canada and the M.Sc. and Ph.D. at the University of California, Berkeley, all in Electrical Engineering. He has held postdoctoral appointments at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor and Bell Labs. In 2000, he co-founded (with four others) Flarion Technologies, a spin off of Bell Labs, that developed Flash OFDM, one of the first cellular OFDM data systems and pre-cursor to 4G systems including LTE and WiMAX. In 2006, Flarion was acquired by Qualcomm Technologies where Dr. Rangan was a Senior Director of Engineering involved in OFDM infrastructure products. He joined the ECE department at NYU Tandon (formerly NYU Polytechnic) in 2010. He is a Fellow of the IEEE and Director of NYU WIRELESS, an academic-industry research center researching next-generation wireless systems. His research interests are in wireless communications, signal processing, information theory and control theory.
