The top 5 universities leading the way on 5G research

Network gear vendors and carriers are increasingly partnering with academic institutions to conduct research on "5G" network technologies. FierceWirelessTech decided to take a close look at the top 5G academic institutions. The result is a list of five (or six) top institutions that are especially worth keeping an eye on in coming months and years. Some of the criteria examined includes participation in public comment on 5G, dedicated staff and facilities, engagement with industry, published works, ability to host workshops or conferences and overall thought leadership. However, this is by no means the "be-all, end-all" list. Hit the books in this special report.
