  • Spirent’s Dave Garrison and Rajat Agarwal reveal how 5G is more than a generational improvement on 4G; it's a new way to design and build networks from core to edge to RF. 5G will require a re-think of the role of networks in meeting end user demands.

  • 5G networks promise efficient, fast connectivity to usher in a new era of services for consumers and businesses. However, deployment is dependent on clear, fair zoning to make 5G a reality. Brian Hendricks, Head of Policy and Government Affairs at Nokia and Dileep Srihari, Director, Legislative and Government Affairs at TIA discuss securing edge network presence in preparation for 5G rollouts.

  • Vehicles are increasingly home to advanced connectivity technologies, compute power and sensors enabling the next wave of vehicular innovations. How will these vehicles connect to networks and the world around them to provide new services and increasing safety? Durga Malladi, SVP of Engineering at Qualcomm speaks about Cellular-V2X and connectivity solutions in the future.

  • Sprint and Ericsson secured early results from their joint field testing of Massive MIMO on the Sprint LTE Plus network in downtown Seattle and Plano, Texas, demonstrating a 4x increase in spectral efficiency.

  • What is a Smart City? And what unique challenges are met when cities and citizens become customers? Mike Zeto, GM and Executive Director of AT&T Smart Cities, discusses what makes making cities "smart" - a broad and complex challenge.

  • If you haven’t heard about millimeter-wave technology, you weren’t listening. High frequency bands that allow for multi-use applications in public safety are already in the test phase. Aditya Dhananjay, Post-Doctoral Fellow at NYU's research center, NYU WIRELESS, spoke with Abe Nejad about why millimeter-wave technology for public safety communications is less understood and what unique challenges it presents.

  • 5G antenna design will be vastly different as we transition from 4G to 5G. From the interface between the antenna and the radio frequency front end, the use of arrays instead of single antennas and the use of beam steering, just how different will it be? Here to tell us is James Kimery, Director of Product Marketing for RF Communications and Software-Defined Radio at National Instruments.

  • Analysts from IDC including spoke with TIA NOW about the tough issues that the communications technology industry is currently tackling, which were covered at the TIA Connectivity Jam in Dallas, TX. These issues span from data management, edge computing, connected devices, network benchmarking and artificial intelligence.

  • Trevor Smith, VP of Strategy and Business Development at CommScope, spoke with TIA NOW about the importance of optimizing the upload of video, as users create more content at the edge. Smith talks further about how CommScope is preparing for 5G networks, including densification and optimization of the network.

  • David Cox, SVP of Communications at the Henkels & McCoy Group discusses how the utility construction sector is changing with the evolving technology sector. Cox talks further about the evolving workforce and how training is thus far moving at a speed that can support new and burgeoning technologies.

  • TIA's CTO Council Meeting in Dallas, TX created several important points on how to tackle the challenges in the digitization of our networks, applications, hardware and software. Joining the discussion are David Tennenhouse, Chief Research Officer at VMware; Kevin Shatzkamer, VP, Service Provider Solutions and Strategy at Dell EMC, Adam Drobot, Chairman at OpenTechWorks and Amit Tiwari, VP, Strategic Alliances and Systems Engineering at Affirmed Networks.

  • The Analysts at TIA's Connectivity Jam 2017 drove the participants hard to find out how the industry is grappling with the challenges to be overcome and the opportunities to be grasped. What important new nuggets did each stream discussion reveal? Now it’s time to learn key takeaways and get a sense of the information that will be in the IDC final report.

  • New test beds, like the smart community pilot with Verizon and the City of Boston, are an innovative example of addressing city challenges like road safety, waste management and public safety. TIA NOW’s Abe Nejad spoke with Jascha Franklin-Hodge, CIO of the City Of Boston, following TIA’s 5G Breakfast, which welcomed an in-depth dialogue with communications technology solution providers and ICT industry analysts.

  • Steve Smiley, Executive Director of Smart Communities at Verizon and Rajesh Mishra, Founder and CTO at Parallel Wireless, talk about the quantifiable measurements of smart communities and how multiple solution providers can partner for smart city deployments.

  • The upside of 5G is huge and attracting a larger community of carriers, enterprise and application developers. TIA NOW spoke with industry leaders about where to look next for 5G and how virtualization and automation will impact the network. Panelists include Drew Schulke of Dell EMC, Martin Bäckström of Ericsson and John Healy of Intel.
