  • The FCC took action at its September Open Meeting to move forward with its Wireless Infrastructure Order aimed at streamline 5G deployment across the U.S. John Godfrey of Samsung, Jeff Marks of Nokia, and Dileep Srihari of TIA discuss the details of the FCC’s Order, what it means for wireless infrastructure build-out across the U.S. and how it will help ensure America’s leadership in the global race to 5G.

  • As macrocells increase in capacity and size, their demand for electrical power will grow accordingly. Is the energy infrastructure that will power the next generation of communications in place today? TIA NOW speaks with Jimmy Taylor, President of TelTech, and Michael Burkhalter, SVP of Global Sales at Alpha Technologies about the policies and solutions necessary to ensure that energy needs don't constrain the 5G future.

  • Can the U.S. maintain its place as a leader in the global race to 5G? Will the FCC and Congress streamline the process of network infrastructure deployments? What disruptive business models will emerge because of 5G? Nokia's EVP and President of North America Rick Corker speaks with TIA CEO Wes Johnston about the near future of the journey to 5G.

  • The edge represents a huge market opportunity. Tier 1 venues, the middleprise and outdoor urban are all in play. But they all have unique cycles and market drivers - so where are we placing our bets? What problems need to be solved and who plays a role in solving them?

  • Edge Densification means increasing the throughput per square meter. Today this means deploying any number of technologies based on the venue, carrier involvement, and business model requirements. So how do you determine the best solution for the application and how is this going to become repeatable and easier?

  • It’s universally agreed that the “edge” has consisted of large and highly visible outdoor and indoor public venues, solved by direct capital investment by willing carriers. However, the carrier has reached a level capex exhaustion that is requiring the ecosystem to rethink the edge densification business. Is this indirect model forcing the entire ecosystem to establish new roles and business initiatives of their own?

  • Mike Collado, Vice President of Marketing for SOLiD tells TIA NOW how the middleprise represents the line of demarcation where wireless operators will no longer fund in- building systems. Collado says this change in the industry means a clear shift for SOLiD’s market focus, moving towards the middleprise and investing in outdoor DAS and transport technologies, bringing connectivity closer to the handset through edge densification.

  • Mario Simard, Group Manager of Business Development at EXFO spoke with TIA NOW, following TIA's Small Cell & DAS Workshop, about the importance of education about fiber for in-building wireless and the transformation between Fronthaul and Centralized-RAN.

  • Allen Dixon, Enterprise Account Executive at H&M Networks, presented on a panel at TIA’s DAS and small cell workshop and later spoke with TIA NOW about converged network infrastructures and in-building wireless.

  • The emerging middle-enterprise space is not a high profile market, but requires in-building connectivity and public safety infrastructure just as much as large venues. Mike Collado, Vice President of Marketing for SOLiD Technologies, tells TIA NOW what a middleprise customer looks like and why industry should be focusing on this burgeoning market.

  • Dr. Rikin Thakker and Dr. Michael Dellomo of RF Academics bring their Wireless and Cellular Workshop Series LIVE on TIAonline.org. Find out more about the upcoming, co-hosted events between the Telecommunications Industry Association and RF Academics.

  • At TIA 2015, Tom Marcin, Vice President of Operations at Henkels and McCoy spoke to TIA NOW about why carriers are asking for small cell and DAS based technologies. He adds that enterprise customers are asking for PON technologies to transform the services they are able to provide.

  • TIA NOW covered Mobile World Congress once again with industry panels, executive interviews and a whole lot of member interaction. Join TIA NOW as we give you a quick look at our coverage at MWC 2015.

  • What are operators doing to reduce the demands on their macro networks? Kai Sahala of Nokia and Greg Friesen of DragonWave tell us what we need to know.

  • What are TIA’s solution sets and how are they delivering value through markets, technology and policy? John Jacobs, Vice President of Membership, Market Development and Industry Relations at TIA says solution sets are important to apply to our businesses as our industry continues to change and evolve.
