FierceWireless Executive 5G Panel Series at Mobile World Congress Los Angeles 2019

Event Overview:

October 22, 2019,/7:30 AM-9:30 AM/ The Road to 5G: Exploring the Business Models
Agenda: The first steps down the road to 5G took a few years, slowed down by the need to set standards and develop architectural designs. But now, finally, the pace is quickening. Major wireless carriers have begun to roll out commercial 5G networks across the globe. And their focus is expanding from technology challenges to business use cases. They’ve acknowledged that simply providing faster speeds and lower latency for smartphones is only the beginning. What will be the first “killer” app for 5G? And in terms of technology, to what extent will 5G really have the ability to replace wired broadband? And how is 5G giving carriers an opportunity to rethink the RAN?

This breakfast event will focus on the extent that 5G will have in the ability to replace wired broadband and how 5G is giving carriers an opportunity to rethink the RAN.

Speakers include:

  • Sanyogita Shamsunder / VP – 5G Labs and Innovation Ecosystem / Verizon
  • Ron Marquardt / Vice President of Technology / Sprint
  • Kishen Mangat / Vice President & General Manager, Service Provider Mobility & Automation / Cisco Systems
  • Hari Kannan / Head of Strategy & Commercial Management / Ericsson North America
  • Ian Hood / Chief Technologiest, Global Service Provider / Red Hat
  • Ashish Sharma / EVP IoT & Mobile Solutions and Chief Marketing Officer / Inseego

October 23, 2019,/7:30 AM-9:30 AM/ The Road to 5G: Urban Densification and Taking 5G Indoors
Agenda: Carriers often talk about urban densification when they explain their 5G deployment plans. They’re adding network capacity in urban areas with technologies such as massive MIMO and millimeter-wave antennas. In addition to providing better coverage for cell phones, this urban densification opens up new opportunities to get cellular inside buildings. Will carriers be able to leverage urban densification to obtain more enterprise business? And what about the challenges of these technologies: such as interference with so many radio technologies in close proximity, and zoning issues with cities and counties?

This breakfast event will discuss carriers’ ability to leverage urban densification to obtain more enterprise business. It will also discuss technology challenges, such as interference with so many radio technologies in close proximity and zoning issues with cities and counties.

Speakers include:

  • Steve Sharkey / Vice President, Government Affairs, Engineering and Technology Policy / T-Mobile
  • Derek Peterson, Ph. D. / CTO / Boingo Wireless
  • Jay Floyd / Director, Wireless Technologies and Program Strategies / MGM Resorts International
  • Mark Reudink / Vice President of Product Development / Crown Castle
  • Chris Pearson / President / 5G Americas
  • Michael Burkhalter / Senior Director of Sales for Emerging Technologies / EnerSys Energy Systems Americas

Event Overview: The hype for 5G has reached a fever pitch, as the marketing battle between operators is already upon us. Behind the scenes, however, the various technologies and business models that are going to drive it are far from defined. Will 5G ever be able to replace the wired broadband connection to the home? How will the 5G enterprise opportunity develop? And what types of services and applications will edge compute architectures be able to deliver? From fixed wireless to edge computing, CBRS, vRAN, 5G Transport, dynamic spectrum sharing and more, the Next Gen Wireless Networks Summit will dive into all of the key trends that are impacting the future of mobile networks.

The StreamTV Show

June 1-3, 2020 | Denver, CO
Overview: While there are plenty of question marks surrounding the future of the Pay TV industry, one thing is becoming more and more clear: the future of television distribution is going to revolve around streaming. That applies to video delivery itself or, at a minimum, the integration and bundling of streaming services into next-gen platforms.

The StreamTV Show 2020
The StreamTV Show 2020

Device makers, MVPDs, virtual MVPDs and content providers are all exploring ways to deliver, package and monetize this ongoing shift, which has resulted in the launch of hundreds of different streaming services in the span of just a few years. In a world with so many options, consumers are quickly becoming frustrated. Not only is it harder than ever to find the content they want to watch across so many different services and devices, but the price for these services is quickly threatening to exceed the incumbent cable bundle so many consumers sought to leave behind. Herein lies the opportunity. How can the industry come together to bundle these services and/or distribute them in a way that doesn’t compromise legacy agreements? What role will ad-supported services play? Which distributors and content providers are best positioned to win? And what products and technologies are emerging to help support these developing business models?
