Clearing obstacles to America’s 5G wireless future: A conversation with FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr

American Enterprise Institute

09/17/2018 - 10:00 to 11:45

The Federal Communications Commission has a key role in the United States’ transition to fifth-generation (5G) wireless technologies and infrastructure. New technologies and devices connecting to the internet as part of the Internet of Things will radically increase the amount of traffic on the network, and important applications such as self-driving cars and health applications will rely on 5G to function.

FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr will discuss the FCC’s efforts to clear regulatory hurdles to enable US leadership in 5G deployment and ensure wireless spectrum needed for 5G technologies is made available. An expert panel discussing these issues will follow.
