Title: Latest Trends in 5G Deployments

Date: August 4, 2021

Time: 10:00am ET / 1:00pm ET

Presented by: Chris Pearson, President, 5G Americas

In 2021, 5G networks continue to ramp up in scale, scope, and sophistication. With already hundreds of millions of users worldwide, 5G is the fastest growing generation of wireless cellular networks, far surpassing the adoption rate of 4G LTE before it. What opportunities and challenges lie ahead for 5G network deployments?

  • How will trends in 5G technology and architecture, such as Open RAN, 5G standalone, and radio improvements such as massive MIMO and beamforming impact this growth rate?

  • How will other factors like new spectrum availability and network densification lead to an acceleration of 5G adoption?

  • What regulatory opportunities and challenges exist in the North American marketplace?

  • Will new business and consumer use cases help to drive further adoption – and if so, which industries are likely to see the most aggressive growth?
