The mainstream wireless industry is heading into a bold and brand-new frontier: 5G and the millimeter wave. Although companies for decades have dabbled in spectrum above 20 GHz – licenses generally dubbed the millimeter-wave bands – those frequencies have suddenly risen to the forefront of the industry via 5G and next generation technologies. Such spectrum promises to support super high-speed, high-bandwidth applications.
As the FCC gears up for its auctions of millimeter-wave spectrum, now is the time to assess the future of the millimeter-wave swell – and to see how other spectrum will align with low-, mid- and high-band spectrum. This FierceWireless session will attempt to sort through the competing claims and provide clarity in the midst of the 5G spectrum wars. What is the real future for 5G, and what revenue-generating services can all these spectrum bands support?
