The Chairwoman of the Federal Communications Commission recently told Congress that the agency has not identified sources of more exclusive-use spectrum that can be auctioned off and used to expand the capacity and reach of America’s wireless broadband networks. While there is little disagreement about the need for more exclusive-use spectrum, investors are getting nervous that there could be a multi-year delay before access to more spectrum actually happens.  

Please join Carolyn and Jen as they discuss the current state of U.S. spectrum allocations for 5G and 6G, where the demand for more capacity is coming from in the U.S, and the near term opportunities for America’s wireless companies to stay ahead of their Chinese counterparts.   

Carolyn and Jen will be joined by RF network expert Peter Rysavy, CEO of Rysavy Research.  Peter will provide insights into some of the creative solutions engineers are developing to extract as much capacity from every MHz, lessons learned from ongoing spectrum sharing experiments such as CBRS and insights into ways spectrum-based networks will catalyze the next industrial revolution.

Little Nuggets of Tech and Telecom — A Lunch Series with Jen and Carolyn is a monthly lunch time discussion series featuring national, international, and local experts from business, law, policy, and economics. For 30 minutes each month, Jen and Carolyn will pose a “What If?” question to analyze different scenarios and factors impacting our sector as they and their guests challenge the status quo on hot topics like how to close the digital divide, the myths of spectrum sharing, and the emerging use cases for 5G that might drive a new wave of growth and innovation in the U.S.
