  • Sprint and T-Mobile recently announced plans to merge into one company as a way to help them keep up with the race to 5G. But will federal regulators go along? Jason Leigh, Senior Research Analyst for Mobility at IDC, joins TIA NOW to talk about their spectrum positions and what comes next.

  • Researchers need city-sized playgrounds in order to properly test and develop 5G technologies. That’s why the National Science Foundation (NSF) has announced it will deploy two 5G platforms for advanced wireless research. Dr. Thyaga Nandagopal, NSF's Deputy Division Director of the Computing & Communications Foundations Division, joins TIA NOW to announce the first two 5G testbed cities.

  • What will define 5G is coming into focus. The need for an effective standards process, that will represent the varied stakeholders, is critical. TIA NOW discusses this process and shows a working demo of 3 future capabilities of 5G.

  • TIA’s Network of the Future conference provides attendees an avenue to explore a wide-range of perspectives that center on the essential infrastructure foundations needed for advancing connectivity and economic opportunity across every industry and every market. You don’t want to miss this. Join us June 5-8 in Plano, TX. Register today at networkofthefuture.org.

  • What can you expect when you allow vendors to leverage your external networking assets? What are the benefits of open specs in a network environment? Cliff Grossner, Senior Research Director & Advisor for the Cloud and Data Center Research Practice at IHS Markit, joins us with answers, and the significant breakthroughs that have happened so far because of open source.

  • What is the future of U.S. trade with China and its effects on the ICT industry? Should American telcos be skeptical about promises of more balanced trade with China?
