5G – A Ten-Year Journey of Innovation, according to InterDigital’s Alan Carlton
From the 2015 Future of Wireless International Conference in London, Mobile World Live published an article focused on the hot topic of day one at the conference – 5G.
The article discusses the opportunities that 5G may provide to the wireless technology industry, government and regulators. According to Keysight Technologies, a United States test and measurement company, 5G is an opportunity to rethink the approach to the next phase of communications. Alan Carlton, Vice President of InterDigital Europe, forecasts 5G as a ten-year journey of innovation that will result in transformation of the industry as we know it today.
Mobile World Live also mentions InterDigital Europe’s current work with the European Commission on a 5G socioeconomic research project. The project aims to help establish European consensus for the requirements of 5G. Carlton stated that “we as an industry need to understand these requirements and there’s a lot of work to be done.”
