CBRS and C-band offer opportunities for operators to get hold of new mid-band spectrum, but Verizon sees each of them very differently.
The only way to get the extra capacity really needed for 5G networks in the U.S. is to obtain more spectrum.
An Ericsson exec said it's not fair to compare LTE with DSS. It's not an apples-to-apples comparison.
U.S. Cellular might be able to win over some Sprint customers as the transition to the New T-Mobile occurs.
Verizon said it’s sticking by its prior public commitments when it comes to dynamic spectrum sharing (DSS) rollouts.
T-Mobile’s president of technology indicated this year might not be so shiny for much anticipated DSS technology, citing delays and challenges.
Vodafone is claiming the prize for being the first to demonstrate 5G DSS on a combination of two low spectrum bands.
Michael Thelander, president of Signals Research Group, said that he expected Chinese operators to be the first to announce standalone NR services.
Its 5G network will initially use 2.5 GHz spectrum, and will expand to use 600 MHz 5G spectrum and 3.5 GHz spectrum later this year.
Nokia says it will introduce DSS as a software upgrade when 5G FDD devices become widely available next year.
