    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. Massive MIMO is key to a network’s ability to meet demands of urban and rural users as a precursor to 5G network deployment in the next few years.

All MWC Americas 2017 Videos:

  • 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.

  • For a policy-based State of the Union on smart cities, we talk to Melissa Tye of Verizon and Paul Schomburg of Panasonic. They cover a wide range of topics including the implications of the upcoming DIGIT Act, municipal infrastructure beyond wireless service, the benefits communities will see from these services and more.

  • 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.

  • Blockchain technology has attained buzzworthy status. But beyond bitcoin, what are blockchain and distributed ledgers, and how will they impact the broader communications landscape? Brian Behlendorf, Executive Director of Hyperledger, a Linux Foundation Project, walks us through the technology as it is used now, and how it will be implemented in enterprise use cases moving forward.

  • With Corning's acquisition of SpiderCloud, they are focused on helping enterprises with their communications strategies. Bill Cune, Vice President of Wireless Market Development of Corning discusses SpiderCloud, its integration with the Corning ONE system, and how the two are driving robust communications in the enterprise as well as large public venues.

  • 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. Massive MIMO is key to a network’s ability to meet demands of urban and rural users as a precursor to 5G network deployment in the next few years.

  • 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.
