NI opens 5G Wireless Innovation Lab in Austin

NI has opened its Wireless Innovation Lab – for 5G research — at its Austin headquarters.

NI said its lab supports researchers at Intel, Lund University, Nokia Networks, NYU Wireless, Samsung, The University of Texas at Austin and TU Dresden for driving significant advances in the development of next-generation wireless systems and research in 5G.

Current demos and projects on display in the NI lab include mmWave cellular systems, 5G Massive MIMO Testbed and the LabVIEW Communications System Design Suite.

“At the Wireless Networking and Communications Group (WNCG), we have several research projects with the RF/Communications Lead User team that range from MIMO interference alignment to interference cancellation,” said Robert Heath, professor, IEEE Fellow at The University of Texas at Austin.
