Event Overview





Next Gen Wireless Networks Summit: The ONLY Event to Bring Together the Entire Mobile Networks Community

5G is arriving this year, but it’s just a tiny part of a much bigger story. Although 5G will likely dominate the conversation in the wireless industry in 2018, the next-generation wireless networks of tomorrow are poised for a much more massive and meaningful evolution. The wireless networks of the future – those that operators, vendors and others are formulating in today’s labs – likely will stretch across new fiber connections underpinned by new, distributed architectures powered by edge computing. Those networks will likely support the newest transmission technologies, from massive MIMO to LAA, while running on spectrum bands considered untenable just a few years ago. Perhaps most importantly, those networks will likely feature modular components supplied by a variety of new and existing vendors, assembled through virtualized, software-powered platforms.

Gone are the days when wireless relied exclusively on new spectrum bands and new data encoding methods to break open new opportunities. The next-generation wireless of tomorrow could power everything from gigabit home internet connections to massive IoT installations stretching across metropolises, all through network architectures far more efficient than those in use today.

5G will undoubtedly stand out in the narrative in 2018 and beyond, but those in the industry are working on a much richer tale.



The FierceWireless Next Gen Wireless Networks Summit will take place October 17-18, 2018.
