There is no dearth of narrative on the ability of virtual and open networks to help unleash the true potential of 5G technology. And yet, none of this matters if operators lack access to adequate and sufficient spectrum resources. Without spectrum, after all, there would be no 5G. Operators understand this dynamic: per GSMA Intelligence research, new spectrum allocations and wide-area coverage (enabled by appropriate spectrum) rank as the top two 5G RAN investment areas for operators. Regulators, in general, are playing their part: by mid-year 2021, more than 140 operators in 42 markets had been allocated 5G spectrum.
Yet, while the 5G spectrum imperative is well-understood, many questions remain as the industry looks to move from simply launching the technology to unlocking 5G success.
Join GSMA Intelligence and experts from across the ecosystem as they debate the need for efficient spectrum management for operators’ open networks strategies in the 5G era.
