OPPO has partnered with renowned research centre NYU WIRELESS at the NYU Tandon school of engineering to sponsor research aimed at creating the next generation of wireless technologies. The vendor also attended the fourth annual Brooklyn 5G Summit at NYU. The summit focused on overall 5G system design progress in 5G channel modeling, 5G regulatory issues, and practical uses for 5G in the “Internet of Things” (IoT) realm.

“NYU WIRELESS has been a major source of innovation in the frontier of telecommunications technologies, and we are delighted to join NYU WIRELESS’s industry affiliate program,” said Hai Tang, the OPPO director of standardisation. “As one of the top smartphone vendors in the world, we are committed to developing a promising next-generation mobile communication technology, commonly known as 5G. And I believe the close collaboration between OPPO and NYU WIRELESS, as well as potential industrial collaboration inspired by the 5G Summit, will play an important role in the future evolution of the industry.”

“We look forward to working closely together and consider it an honor to be collaborating with OPPO, which is one of the leading global manufacturers of mobile phones,” said Sundeep Rangan, associate professor of electrical and computer engineering at NYU Tandon. “OPPO has a reputation for rapidly bringing new technologies to market, and thus the research collaboration with NYU WIRELESS has the potential to generate tremendous impact as we progress toward 5G networks with thousand-fold increases in data capacity.”

NYU WIRELESS is a recognised international academic leader in 5G research. Its research was cited by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) when the commission explored the future of millimetre technology.
