NSF Announced a $22.5M Platforms for Advanced Wireless (PAWR) Grant awarded to the COSMOS project led by Rutgers, Columbia, and NYU in partnership with New York City, Silicon Harlem, City College of New York, and University of Arizona. The goal of the COSMOS project is to deploy an advanced wireless research testbed in West Harlem with a technology focus on ultra-high bandwidth and low latency wireless communication tightly coupled with edge computing.
The team is led by Prof. Dipankar Raychaudhuri and Ivan Seskar at Rutgers, Prof. Gil Zussman at Columbia, and Prof. Sundeep Rangan, at NYU. The Columbia team will build on ongoing research in mmWave, cross-layering and optical systems for wireless networks, and dynamic spectrum access. The team will leverage Columbia buildings and vehicles for the testbed deployment, which will also serve as a platform for community outreach. In addition to Zussman, the Columbia team includes professors Zoran Kostic, Harish Krishnaswamy, and Henning Schulzrinne, Columbia CTO Alan Crosswell; and Sharon Sputz, the Data Science Institute’s Director of Strategic Programs.
