MixComm, the mmWave Antennas to Algorithms™ pioneer, is sponsoring the mmWave Summit webinar, the first in a new series that will highlight recent mmWave advances and possibilities for 5G and satellite communications on Thursday, February 25. With two identical sessions at 10 a.m. ET and 5 p.m. PT to accommodate a global audience, attendees will have the opportunity to hear from industry leaders such as GLOBALFOUNDRIES®, Rohde & Schwarz, Dreamtech, Mobile Experts, IDC, Picocom, Richardson RFPD and more.

The inaugural and free-of-charge mmWave Summit brings together trailblazers who are enabling the promise and potential of mmWave. Covering all aspects of the mmWave ecosystem—from the fundamental technology to components to services—the event’s speakers will share innovations they are working on and opportunities they see to improve adoption and use of the technology. Significant industry initiatives such as Open RAN will be highlighted. In addition, top industry analysts will share their insights on the current technology landscape, as well as their outlook for 2021 and beyond. Attendees will also have the opportunity to ask questions during a live Q&A.

Each session will be moderated by Microwave Journal’s Technical Editor Gary Lerude. “The rapid commercialization of mmWave technology is enabling impressive mobile and fixed wireless access capabilities for the consumer and industry,” said Lerude. “Microwave Journal is the leading source of information about the RF/microwave industry, and we are proud to host the mmWave Summit, an excellent forum to inform audiences on the importance and state of mmWave technology.”
