Identifying and discussing the most attractive 5G NR deployment strategies, with a focus on 5G mobile broadband deployed in combination with Gigabit LTE and with fixed access services

A Light Reading Live Custom Event

Deployment Strategies for 5G NR @ Mobile World Congress Americas (Breakfast Workshop)

About the event:

Operators in the North America are poised to extend their success with advanced 4G networks and launch commercial 5G services in 2019. This breakfast workshop event will identify and discuss the most attractive 5G NR deployment strategies, with a focus on 5G mobile broadband deployed in combination with Gigabit LTE and with fixed access services. 

Operators in the North America are poised to extend their success with advanced 4G networks and launch commercial 5G services in 2019. This breakfast workshop event will identify and discuss the most attractive 5G NR deployment strategies, with a focus on 5G mobile broadband deployed in combination with Gigabit LTE and with fixed access services.

The breakfast workshop format offers an opportunity for concise information exchange and in-person networking, without impacting your agenda for the rest of the day.

Among the topics the event will cover are:
  • Deployment of 5G NR in low-band, mid-band, and high-band spectrum and the implications for cell site density and topology, time-to-market, and the performance of end-user services.
  • The critical role of the 4G-LTE network. Early 5G mobile is expected to make extensive use of the existing 4G network, using the LTE RAN and core network in for 5G in NSA-mode, and as a fallback/underlay layer while 5G coverage is deployed.
  • Discussion of potential 5G service propositions and devices.
  • A look ahead to later phase technology developments and service innovations. Over time 5G will extend far beyond broadband access to include a wide variety of enterprise and consumer applications, from vehicles, to healthcare to industry 4.0
