Description

U.S. operators led the world in 4G LTE deployment, which is why Americans enjoy some of the largest and most advanced wireless networks. Yet other countries, such as South Korea and Japan, are starting R&D and planning demonstrations of next generation technology they call ‘5G.’ In order for Americans to continue to enjoy state-of-the-art networks, U.S. operators must assume a leadership role in advancing 4G LTE and defining use cases and technical requirements for next generation technology.

Chief Technology Officers from leading U.S. operators will share their perspectives on the challenges and opportunities we’ll face as the wireless industry advances from 4G LTE to 5G. What is driving the evolving technology? What are some of the key requirements? How will mobile users benefit from 5G?
