mmWave Wireless Channel Measurements in the COSMOS testbed

5G cellular networks will use high-frequency millimeter-wave (mmWave) communication, which promises high data rates and ample spectrum availability. Students working on this project will conduct a mmWave wireless channel measurement campaign around the COSMOS testbed (, a wireless networking testbed located at Columbia stretching between 120th and 136th St. Students will be able to use state-of-the-art equipment, including mmWave phased array antennas, to conduct these measurements. The measurements will play an important part of developing network-level control algorithms.
