NYU Poly already looking towards 5G networks

We're still in the middle of the whole 4G debate, where the original definition of 4G has had to be changed because of too much false marketing by big carriers, but that isn't stopping researchers from looking into what 5G mobile networks are going to look like...

my bad? I came with this but same happened with the 4 been considered 4G, its not apples fault their numbers go around the numbers of new data speeds so people can get confused.... so I'm asking how many will considered the i5 they have is a 5G phone sounds pretty legit

How about we just get 4g speed to run at its actual speed instead?

By the way, The "G" in all of the 2G, 3G and 4G stands for generation. The number states what generation it is. It has nothing to do with speed. Ask any engineer that works for a cellular company.

eh we all know that... but every generation comes with improvements among this speed is one of them GSM, EDGE, 3G, 3G+, 4G all came with certain improvements when it comes to speed

sort of. It used to indicate speed, but then it got adulterated when competition took over.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1G

With alll the speed on the planet, when will the battery technogy break through to keep up with these power hungry eater technology?

almost forever would be my guess, i think all of us can agree that battery tech needs way more focused.

But thats the sad reality, general consumers want thin phones and big screens. and could care less about battery life.

It would be cool if they were to use the "Millimeter Spectrum" to produce the true definition of 4G (up to/averaging 1Gbit/s down), or a good amount slower speed of 100Mbps down. This would be great, especially since device updates & apps are getting larger & larger, and gaming system seem to be going to download content only; but the main problem would be having enough storage on the devices, excluding gaming devices. It's a bit annoying trying to download a 1GB game on my PS3 at about .75Mbps, and in fact I've never really tried (it said "estimated download time: 24 hours").

I know this is sorta off subject but i just wanna say that today in the UK, ofcom have revealed plans for the auction of the 4G spectrum and that services wil start rolling next year. I am proper red faced that its taking soo f***ing long to get it sorted. The UK is atleast 2 years behind the rest of the world!!! 7.2Mbps (HSPA+) is not fast enough and what with having a phone that can receive a 4G signal, i feel that not just me but the whole UK is losing out. Can somebody go tell ofcom to get off the ass and sort it the f*** out. Yeah i know im trolling but somebody had to say it

I've given up onofcom... The last I heard about them was that they were not letting o2 go 4g because it would be unfair to the competition! :L

Leave it to a crappy university like NYU to chase down grant money and (with absolutely no ideas or sound approaches in mind) chase down the brilliant idea of making something that keeps getting faster ... even faster! Pure genius.

Brooklyn Poly is the second oldest engineering school in the US and it was a leader in engineering for other engineering schools since 1854. It was a commuter school for years. NYU Engineering merged with Brooklyn Poly in 1973. Now its more on the global scene! Do your homework before you call a school crappy.
