First Silicon Valley 5G Summit Hosted by Samsung Research America

by Tech Mainstream Staff


October 22, 2016



The first Silicon Valley 5G Summit brought together global telecommunications industry leaders to assess the future infrastructure of fifth generation (5G) networks. The implementation of 5G Fixed Wireless Access and mobile service attracted 100 industry leaders to the event. The leaders came from such diverse organizations as "chip makers and other component manufacturers, telecom operators, universities, industry analysts, system vendors, investors, policymakers and measurement equipment vendors, representing a wide cross-section of interests and expertise."

Government officials participated in the event by advocating the "allocation of spectrum" and examining the "market outlook for new 5G service opportunities." Academics and eco-partners were additionally present and discussed the "end-to-end ecosystem through testing, verifying and optimizing radio frequency (RF) performance of 5G candidate frequencies above and below 6GHz."

The United States was the first to introduce "broader ultra-high frequency millimeter wave spectrum bands." The Federal Communications Commission accelerated this by its "swift action on wireless policy." This was the conclusion of keynote speaker, Chief of the Federal Communications Commission Office of Engineering and Technology."

Through session programs and an exhibition, products and services were presented to support the increasing viability of 5G technology implementation. The "beginnings of a strong and viable [5G] ecosystem" was the main thrust of the summit.

In a few years, 5G fixed wireless access commercial services will be reality. The informative discussions and presentations of the Silicon Valley 5G Summit and in future summits, will help bolster the 5G ecosystem with "innovation, keep prices down, and ensure a strong multivendor environment."
