The next major shift in mobile broadband – 5G – will enable innovative services through emerging wireless core technologies and a programmable infrastructure designed to meet new requirements. InterDigital’s Jim Miller, Director of Radio Standards, recently joined Senza Fili’s Monica Paolini to discuss one of the emerging technologies, LAA-LTE.

The article based on the conversation is titled “Fairness to Wi-Fi is Crucial to LTE Unlicensed’s Success,” and focuses on the evolution of the role of LTE unlicensed, Wi-Fi and their coexistence. Jim also discussed InterDigital’s LAA-LTE standardization efforts that are focused on 3GPP and current solutions, such as the Smart Access Manager, that provide the company with a good vantage point to assess the potential of LAA-LTE.

The interview will serve as a background for the upcoming report, – “LTE Unlicensed and Wi-Fi: Moving Beyond Coexistence” – being produced by Senza Fili in collaboration with RCR wireless and set to be released on May 12, 2015. In addition, XCellAir, Ruckus Wireless, Qualcomm, Cisco, Alcatel-Lucent and Wi-Fi Alliance among other industry experts participated in interviews that helped drive the report.
