For the second consecutive year, a student in the NYU Wireless program has won a Young Scholar award from the Marconi Society.

Shu Sun works with professor Ted Rappaport on the use of millimeter wavelength channels for enhanced cellular service.

“The Young Scholars are a community of scientists dedicated to improving the world by advancing the frontiers of telecommunications and networking,” according to the Marconi Society. “We honor their creative work in the spirit of the boldness and vision exemplified by Nobel Prize winner Guglielmo Marconi.”

5G technology aims to broadcast cellular signals on a higher frequency part of the electromagnetic spectrum from where such signals are broadcast now. The area, which has high frequency waves measured in millimeters, is a more fragile but potentially has the capacity for orders of magnitude more bandwidth.

Rappaport and the university’s work was on display earlier this summer, at the 5G Summit, where we reported on the latest advances in the technology.
