    Sprint and Ericsson secured early results from their joint field testing of Massive MIMO on the Sprint LTE Plus network in downtown Seattle and Plano, Texas, demonstrating a 4x increase in spectral efficiency. Massive MIMO is key to a network’s ability to meet demands of urban and rural users as a precursor to 5G network deployment in the next few years.

  • For a policy-based State of the Union on smart cities, we talk to Melissa Tye of Verizon and Paul Schomburg of Panasonic. They cover a wide range of topics including the implications of the upcoming DIGIT Act, municipal infrastructure beyond wireless service, the benefits communities will see from these services and more.

  • Vehicles are increasingly home to advanced connectivity technologies, compute power and sensors enabling the next wave of vehicular innovations. How will these vehicles connect to networks and the world around them to provide new services and increase safety? Durga Malladi, SVP of Engineering at Qualcomm, speaks about cellular V2X and connectivity solutions in the future.

  • Blockchain technology has attained buzzworthy status. But beyond bitcoin, what are blockchain and distributed ledgers, and how will they impact the broader communications landscape? Brian Behlendorf, Executive Director of Hyperledger, a Linux Foundation Project, walks us through the technology as it is used now, and how it will be implemented in enterprise use cases moving forward.

  • Future roads will host a combination of shared rides, electric cars and autonomous vehicles, says Peter Kosak, Executive Director of Global Urban Mobility Programs at General Motors. Kosak talks with TIA NOW about consumers’ evolving views on autonomous vehicles, how easier modes of transportation affect the future of car ownership, and what hurdles still need to be addressed as we transition to more embedded connectivity and shared mobility.

  • With Corning's acquisition of SpiderCloud, they are focused on helping enterprises with their communications strategies. Bill Cune, Vice President of Wireless Market Development of Corning discusses SpiderCloud, its integration with the Corning ONE system, and how the two are driving robust communications in the enterprise as well as large public venues.
