Advancing 5G wireless technology on mobile platforms is the goal of a new Research Triangle partnership funded by the National Science Foundation.

NC State to lead research aimed at creating a more flexible and adaptable 5G network

Fifth generation (5G) wireless networks hold promise to be as much as 10 times more efficient than current 4G networks, with faster speeds and higher capacity to support many more data connections than previously possible.

To ensure the nation’s leadership in 5G, the National Science Foundation (NSF) and an industry consortium have invested $100 million over the next seven years to build specialized wireless networks for U.S. researchers to test new ways of increasing wireless speed and capacity.

North Carolina’s Research Triangle region has been selected to host the third wireless platform.
