Mobile broadband technology and networks have proven to be potent catalysts for innovation and development in computing, networking, application development, consumer devices and economic opportunity. The next evolution of mobile broadband, referred to by many as 5G, will soon be upon us. But so far, we know relatively little about the kinds of new uses and applications 5G will enable, the precise network architectures that will bring expanded capabilities and faster broadband speeds to billions, or how 5G networks will integrate with existing 3G and 4G infrastructure. Still, it is not too soon to discuss the kinds of policies that could enable or retard innovations and economic opportunities that “mobile broadband on steroids” will make possible.
Please join the Wireless Technology Association and the Georgetown Center for Business and Public Policy’s Project on the Evolution of Regulation and Innovation for a unique technology and policy workshop October 14, 2015 to learn about these issues and more.
The workshop will feature keynote remarks from Federal Trade Commissioner Maureen Olhausen and Cisco Systems Fellow Dr. Paul Polakos. Panelists include:
Reza Arefi, Director Spectrum Strategy, Intel
Carolyn Brandon, Senior Industry and Innovation Fellow, Georgetown Center for Business and Public Policy
Larry Downes, Project Director, Georgetown Center for Business and Public Policy
