Work on research problems related to the future of wireless networks is the focus of a new partnership between Waterloo Engineering researchers and Cisco Canada.
Catherine Rosenberg, who was announced today as the Cisco Research Chair in 5G Systems, will head a multidisciplinary team of experts to help the industry leader in networking prepare for the introduction of 5G.
“This allows us to work on practical and very relevant problems related to 5G, and I am very excited about working with Cisco,” said Rosenberg, an electrical and computer engineering professor and Canada Research Chair in the Future Internet.
The research chair, part of a larger commitment to the University of Waterloo by Cisco, is backed by $1 million in funding over five years.
Also included are donated interactive displays, and contributions to a service that links businesses to University innovation and a lab to spark entrepreneurial ideas.
