The capabilities of wireless services improve constantly, but roughly every 10 years a new generation of mobile technology comes along, bringing fundamental improvements to the capabilities of mobile networks and changes to spectrum management approaches.
To deliver affordable, high quality services, carriers require fair access to sufficient radio spectrum. As a result, governments and regulators carefully manage mobile spectrum, which, in turn, supports a vibrant digital economy.
Sometimes this includes charging a price for access to spectrum to encourage efficient use. However, evidence shows that when prices are too high, consumers can suffer from slower mobile data speeds, worse coverage, and slower rollouts.
This workshop at MWC Las Vegas aims to debate the issue around spectrum concepts, needs, and the role of WRC-23 for a successful spectrum management to enhance mobile services and a sustainable future to every citizen around the world.
Who would this course benefit?
Any organisation that wants to understand the role of spectrum in wireless communication. This includes network operators, equipment manufacturers, technology solution providers, research institutions, as well as anyone who holds a role in strategic decision-making.
