The Brooklyn 6G Summit, since its inception in 2014, has focused on the long-term future of wireless technology and looks ahead to research and development and what may come into being beyond 5G. But one of the virtual event’s panels this week also focused on the here and now of how mobile network operators see thestate of 5G currently, and as it evolves into 5G Advanced.
Speakers from T-Mobile US, Dish Network, AT&T, Deutsche Telekom and the U.S. Federal Communications Commission weighed in on 5G, its potential and deriving value from the new network technology. The general consensus? 5G has a long way to go and there’s still a lot to learn that will, ultimately, shape future 6G systems.
