The leap from 3G or 4G technology to 5G and the Internet of Things (“IoT”) promises to revolutionize the way we live, work, and travel. Indeed, emerging technologies like IoT and Narrowband IoT (“NB-IoT”) can connect billions of devices by improving the battery life and power consumption of user equipment, and increasing system capacity and spectrum efficiency, especially in areas requiring increased coverage. And the introduction of next-generation and 5G technologies also will offer more efficient networks with increased capacity to improve customer experience – throughout urban, rural, and remote areas of the country. Join CCA and panelists to discuss the next-generation of technology and how smart policy decisions can ignite innovative deployments and foster the growth of emerging technologies for the benefit of consumers across all areas of the United States.
