Wireless Networks Division - Collaborators

Developing, testing, and evaluating wireless network technology takes expertise ranging from the behavior of radio-frequency propagation to the vagaries of public policy. To achieve its ambitious goals, the NIST Communications Technology Laboratory (CTL) Wireless Networks Division collaborates with a variety of government, industry and academic partners. Within NIST, we work closely with the Boulder, Colorado based RF Technology Division and Public Safety Communications Research Division (PSCR) on CTL’s core programs: Public Safety Communications, Spectrum Sharing, and Next-Generation 5G Wireless.

Among the Division’s outside collaborators include:
   • The U.S. Department of Homeland Security
   • The First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet)
   • National Telecommunications and Information Administration/Institute for Telecommunication Sciences (NTIA/ITS)
   • The National Advanced Spectrum and Communications Test Network (NASCTN)
   • 5G mmWave Channel Model Alliance
   • The U.S. Department of Energy
   • Telecommunication Standard Setting Organizations such as IEEE 802, 3GPP, TIA, ATIS, IETF, ETSI
   • Industry Alliances: WInnForum, WiMAX, Wi-Fi Alliance, ZigBee Alliance, Bluetooth SIG, oneM2M
   • User groups: UCA International Users Group’s OpenSG, National Public Safety Telecommunications Council
   • Smart Grid Interoperability Panel
