5G is beginning to accelerate rapidly with many Carriers announcing dates. 5G has been long considered an idea without meat, but, in fact, we see advancements in the Access and Core networks, as well as the regulatory framework, that promise to deliver significant connectivity improvements in the very near future. It’s an opportunity for builders of Edge Networks, Small Cells, Optical components, and millimeter wave radio systems, and the ecosystems that surround these, to address new markets and drive new business opportunities.
In this first of a two part series on 5G, The Wireless Communications Alliance (WCA) will present an overview of the radio and regulatory side of 5G. We will focus on the spectral allocations that provide the additional pipe necessary for enormous bandwidth, and the RAN and Access technologies that will face the customer, whether man or machine.
In a second part, to be sponsored by the WCA’s Infrastructure SIG sometime in the Spring of 2019, we will look at the other side of the equation, namely the Backhaul and Core networks.
You will hear from specialists about how these technologies fit into the 5G world, what gaps exist in the ecosystem, and what spectrum is leverable? Come join us, meet your peers in the industry, meet prospective partners and vendors, and take advantage of this opportunity to discuss an issue that is foundational to Wireless Communications.
