The Aspen Institute Communications and Society Program released a new report that examines the regulatory needs for the next generation of wireless innovation, often referred to as 5G. Demand for wireless services is growing exponentially, especially in machine-to-machine communication, and 5G technologies allow for exciting new uses of the spectrum. At the same time, the U.S. Government will need to take a number of steps to encourage innovation and fairness in the field.
Preparing for a 5G World, written by rapporteur Richard Adler, is the volume resulting from the 2015 Aspen Institute Roundtable on Spectrum Policy (AIRS), a gathering of 25 leaders and experts from competing businesses, government and the non-profit sector held at the Aspen/Wye River Conference Center in Queenstown, Maryland last October.The report defines key policy issues raised by the move to 5G and recommends actions to address these concerns.
