Honolulu, Hawaii, January 2017: Kalpak Gude, President of the Dynamic Spectrum Alliance, today addressed why the Spectrum Revolution is integral to the future 5G world.
Mr. Gude commented on how at its core the new 5G world is all about wireless solutions and connectivity enabling, among other things, the Internet of Things (IoT). However, he mentioned it is more than just faster internet, it is about satisfying our societal expectations of being connected anywhere and everywhere, without limits.
“To satisfy the expectations, however, 5G cannot have a one-size-fits-all approach to spectrum management if it is to meet the differing demands. Low-band, mid-band, and high-band spectrum, each with its own strengths, will need to be available and abundant. Dynamic spectrum sharing, with a regulatory structure embracing unlicensed and lightly-licensed regulations, is the only way to satisfy these growing spectrum requirements. In turn, this will enable the IoT and provide connectivity anywhere and everywhere to bring the benefits of the connected future to the four billion that currently are not part of the global conversation,” concluded Gude.
This discussion comes ahead of the Dynamic Spectrum Alliance’s fifth annual Global Summit, which takes place between 9-11 May 2017, in Cape Town, South Africa. For more information about the Global Summit, please visit: http://dynamicspectrumalliance.org/global-summit/.
