Topic: dynamic spectrum sharing
Verizon’s CEO frequently touts DSS as a big part of the carrier’s 5G strategy. One analyst surmises how that strategy may play out.
Verizon announced today that select areas of Washington, D.C., Atlanta, Detroit, and Indianapolis will now be able to access Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband network for mobile service.
In London, Vodafone is using 5G equipment from Ericsson’s Radio System portfolio, and it's tapping into dynamic spectrum sharing technology.
T-Mobile CEO John Legere said, "If you want to use DSS, you are effectively committing in the same breath to rolling out 5G in mid- and low band."
CEO Hans Vestberg defended Verizon’s millimeter wave spectrum strategy one day after T-Mobile CTO Neville Ray blasted its “spotty” and “unreliable” 5G coverage.
Some North American operators will deploy the software in the next year as a way to quickly expand their 5G coverage.
