Learn more about the PAWR platforms through published papers and events.

 

On May 27, 2020, the Platforms for Advanced Wireless Research (PAWR) program announced a new $2.7M project funded by the U.S. Department of Defense to test AI-driven spectrum sharing optimization in a 5G-NR network. Dr. Thyaga Nandagopal, Deputy Division Director (DDD) for the Division of Computing and Communication Foundations (CCF) at the National Science Foundation, spoke with US Ignite’s Mari Silbey at the 5GX Connect Summit on the project’s aims and the capability of PAWR testbed sites to enable new research into advanced communications network technologies.

   OAI North America Workshop

As a Strategic Member of the OpenAirInterface Software Alliance (OSA), the PAWR project co-hosted the First OAI North America workshop on June 25-27, 2019 at Nokia-Bell Labs Murray Hills Campus in New Jersey.

The first two awarded platforms in the PAWR program – COSMOS and POWDER-RENEW – were prominently featured to showcase their support of OAI software as well as custom features developed for Massive MIMO, 5G, and end-to-end application support operations. PAWR Industry Consortium members also delivered talks and showcased demonstrations to align their development roadmaps to OSA goals.
