What does the future hold for 5G and Spectrum Sharing? Find out during DARPA-hosted panel at MWC19 Los Angeles

Spectrum sharing is critical for the 5G future. Using spectrum sharing technology, independent operators – or users – employing different wireless technologies can coexist in the same spectrum assignment. This allows for greater utilization of current spectrum bands, and speeds access to new bands where there are incumbent users, such as radars or satellite links.

To explore the potential impacts of spectrum sharing in a 5G world, DARPA is convening a panel of government and industry experts on Thursday, October 24 at Mobile World Congress 2019 (MWC19) Los Angeles following the SC2 Championship Event on Wednesday, October 23. Our panelists include:

  • Julius Knapp – Chief, Office of Engineering & Technology, Federal Communications Commission
  • Fred Moorefield – Acting Deputy CIO, Command, Control, Communications and Computers and Information Infrastructure Capabilities (C4IIC), Office of the Secretary of Defense, Chief Information Officer
  • John Smee – VP of Engineering, Qualcomm Research
  • Ali Khayrallah – Engineering Director, Ericsson Research
  • Paul Tilghman – Program Manager, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA)

Join these distinguished panelists to hear what they found most interesting about the SC2 Championship Event and to investigate the approaches used by the champion. Panelists will also discuss how SC2 relates to other spectrum sharing efforts being pursued by industry leaders and regulators as part of the 5G ecosystem, and what to expect in the future of 5G and spectrum sharing.

All MWC19 Los Angeles attendees interested in learning more about high-impact spectrum sharing technology and applications are encouraged to attend. No advanced registration is required.
