In a recent GSMA Intelligence poll of industry professionals, 80% said that they did not expect mmWave 5G to be a mainstream consumer proposition over the next two years.
For many in the industry, this might seem shocking particularly given the number of markets where spectrum has been allocated, not to mention the arrival of an iPhone with mmWave support. For others, however, this simply reflects the current (nascent) state of the technology and the questions surrounding it.
- Which use cases make the most sense for mmWave deployments? Fixed wireless access? Dense urban deployments? Indoor deployments in public venues? Manufacturing?
- What is the trajectory for mmWave smartphones? How many can we realistically expect to see in the near-term? At what price?
- How should operators think about the costs of deploying mmWave 5G? Is there really a business case?
Join us to tackle all of these questions and more as we look to understand the mmWave 5G opportunity today, and tomorrow.
