ATIS’ Next G Alliance today announced the formation of the Next G Alliance (NGA) Research Council and publication of its 6G Research Priorities. These actions are the first steps in aligning the future vision for 6G in North America with the research that will drive wireless leadership over the next decade.
Madeline Pooler, an undergraduate student dual enrolled at Saint Mary’s College in computing and applied mathematics, and at the University of Notre Dame in computer science, took part in a 10-week summer program called Advanced Wireless Research Experiences (AWaRE) through the Wireless Institute at the University of Notre Dame. The Wireless Institute is co-directed by the director of SpectrumX, Nick Laneman, who served as Pooler’s faculty mentor.
SpectrumX Director and Notre Dame Wireless Institute Co-Director Nick Laneman was quoted in this story regarding how the Citywide Classroom South Bend (CCSB) partnered with the Wireless Institute and the Notre Dame Office of Information Technologies to lead the way piloting a private LTE network which can reach 1,000 families. The access will be broadcast from three towers.
In 2012, enFocus grew out of Notre Dame’s Engineering, Science and Technology Entrepreneurship Excellence Master’s program (ESTEEM). Fellows work as nonprofit consultants on tech projects in the local community.
Nick Laneman, center director of SpectrumX, the National Science Foundation Spectrum Innovation Center, and professor of electrical engineering at the University of Notre Dame; and William Webb, external advisory board member of SpectrumX and chief technology officer of Access Partnership, were consulted by Mitch Leslie on a recent paper in ScienceDirect.
On June 16 and 17, 2022, SpectrumX, the first U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) Spectrum Innovation Center, held its inaugural center-wide meeting at the University of Colorado Boulder.
The review meeting gave each working group and project team the opportunity to share updates and obtain feedback on their collaborative efforts. Presentations were given on the center’s numerous priorities, including policy outreach, broadening participation, education and workforce development, and research in such areas as use cases and coexistence, economics and policy research, radio and networking technologies, and data and machine learning.
On May 18, 2022, SpectrumX held its first External Advisory Board (EAB) meeting with the center leadership team at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana.
The first U.S.National Science Foundation (NSF) Spectrum Innovation Center, SpectrumX is the world’s largest academic hub where all stakeholders can innovate, collaborate, and contribute to maximizing social welfare of the precious radio spectrum. The center is composed of 41 founding researchers and staff from 27 universities, and is partnered with the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO), an NSF Major Facility. Founded in September 2021 with a 5-year, $25M grant from NSF, SpectrumX’s mission is to pursue interdisciplinary research, education and workforce development, collaboration, and policy outreach.
Dr. Nick Laneman, Center Director of SpectrumX – the first NSF Spectrum Innovation Center, and Co-Director of the Wireless Institute at Notre Dame, recently gave a keynote presentation at IEEE DySPAN 2021. IEEE DySPAN is the premier conference on diverse issues related to spectrum sensing, access, sharing, coexistence, and utilization within current and emerging wireless tracks.
Several members of the SpectrumX team are playing pivotal roles in the planning, execution, and presentations given at the IEEE International Symposium on Dynamic Spectrum Access Networks Conference, being held virtually December 13 – 15, 2021.
Dr. Nick Laneman presented an overview of SpectrumX to the Wireless Spectrum Interagency Working Group (WSRD IWG) to summarize the Center’s plans, identify key points of contact, and encourage government stakeholders to get involved.
