Obama Administration Announces $400 Million Advanced Wireless Research Initiative

Obama Administration announced today a $400 million Advanced Wireless Research Initiative led by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The new program is aimed to enable deployment and use of four city-scale testing platforms for advanced wireless research over the next decade and to build upon the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) Spectrum Frontiers vote yesterday.

The initiative includes an $85 million investment in advanced wireless testing platforms from NSF and over 20 technology companies, including Samsung, Intel, Oracle and Verizon. The foundation also said that it will invest an additional $350 million over the next seven years in academic research that can utilize these testing platforms.
