National Science Foundation to Spend $400 Million on Next-Generation Wireless (Spectrum Sharing and Millimeter Wave Among The Technologies)

The U.S. National Science Foundation will spend more than US$400 million over the next seven years to fund next-generation wireless research in an effort to bring super-fast mobile service to the country.

Support for millimeter wave technology and spectrum sharing are among the areas the NSF will target. Both subjects are among the ssues to be discussed by speakers at Spectrum Futures in Singapore, 19-21 October, 2016.

U.S. officials hope the investments will speed up the county's move to next-generation 5G mobile service, potentially offering speeds of 10Gbps, and allow for a rapid expansion of the internet of things.

The next-generation mobile services will enable self-driving cars, an "always on" IoT, smart cities, new virtual reality offerings, and video to aid police, firefighters, and emergency medical responders.
