Mobile Carriers Show Welcomes Fierce Wireless to Host Keynote Panel 

"Wireless: The Next Frontier” as Panelists Discuss Transitioning from 4G to 5G/5G Advanced.  

Washington, DC – Mobile carriers from across the nation will convene at CCA’s Mobile Carriers Show as the Fierce Wireless keynote panel, “Wireless: The Next Frontier, will delve into the complexities of transitioning from 4G to 5G/5G Advanced technologies. Hosted by Fierce Wireless on Wednesday, April 17 at 8:45 am PT and live streamed, panelists will shed light on the critical factors involved in this transition, emphasizing the pivotal role of spectrum allocation, permitting, financing, and the role wireless plays in connecting all Americans.

Transitioning from 4G to 5G/5G Advanced requires the right spectrum as well as the appropriate permitting and financing. Use cases like FWA, AI/VR, and private networks are driving the transition, and federal funding from programs like BEAD are helping to make it happen. Panelists will explore what service providers can expect as they navigate this new frontier and what advocacy programs are helping them achieve their targets. Speakers will include:

-      Velena Tsosie, General Manager, NTUA Wireless 

-      Jennifer Prather, CEO, Totelcom Communications, LLC

“The transition from 4G to 5G/5G Advanced represents a paradigm shift in the telecommunications industry, with profound implications for mobile carriers and consumers alike,” said Tim Donovan, President and CEO of CCA. “Panelists will address critical issues and examine the collaborative efforts of carriers who are paving the way for an efficient transition to next-generation networks and shaping the future of connectivity, using all technologies available to close the digital divide.”
