5G is no longer just a talking point; it’s starting to become a reality. Verizon Wireless is using home broadband/fixed wireless as an entry point for its 5G and launching services in select markets. AT&T announced 19 cities that it will be launching 5G - 12 by the end of this year and seven at the start of 2019. Sprint is leveraging its 2.5GHz spectrum to launch 5G using massive MIMO.

These MNOs are signing multi-billion dollar deals with equipment vendors and solution providers to launch its 5G networks. Come to DASpedia’s 5G Forum to learn about opportunities and implications for professionals involved in wireless network infrastructure.
