Wireless Infrastructure Panel: Virtualiztion and 4G/5G with Ryan Salm

Tuesday, May 24th
3:15 - 4:05pm 

This session will focus on infrastructure developments for 4G and 5G wireless networks and the shift to virtualized networks using SDN and NFV. 5G networks will use a mix of technologies to provide the coverage and bandwidth that is needed to meet subscriber expectations. Small cells, Cloud RAN and LTE Advanced features such as carrier aggregation and high-order MIMO are quickly becoming essential for new wireless deployments. At the same time virtualization is changing the way service providers plan, deploy and manage networks. This panel will discuss the latest component and platform developments and the benefits for carriers and equipment manufacturers.
