The New World of Private Networks: Exploring the Backbone of Digital Transformation

Organized by RCR Wireless, this day-long event will consider the various different private network deployment models, the developing market for licensed and unlicensed ‘vertical’ spectrum, the investment case for enterprises to scope new private-network installs, the question of infrastructure design and management, and the key use cases that these new private networks will engender – among a host of other topics.

The hurdles of spectrum harmonization
(11:25 AM – 12:05 PM ET / 8:25 – 9:05 AM PT)

Speaker: Asimakis Kokkos, Technical Specification Lead, MFA – Alliance for private networks

Countries around the world are releasing more spectrum bands, but the lack of harmonization and availability are posing problems. Devices and IoT manufacturers must work with the other stakeholders to ensure steady progress. In this session, our experts discuss the role of the spectrum in deploying a 5G network. They will address the hurdles of spectrum harmonization, the opportunities and limitations for licensed and unlicensed spectrums and what bands address each use case. Let’s take a look at the global spectrums’ landscape and the associated opportunities and limitations.

  • Policies – global spectrums landscape
  • Frequency bands and use cases
  • Unlicensed and shared spectrum: MulteFire, CBRS…
  • Device compatibility
