The 26 GHz band is capable of delivering fibre-like speeds with extremely low latency, but the high propagation loss poses a challenge to achieve wide area coverage compared to lower spectrum bands. Our report for UK Spectrum Policy Forum proposes a hybrid licensing approach to achieve Ofcom’s objective of licensing this band as part of their commitment to the EU directive.
Every year sees new developments and challenges for the wireless industry. On 21 January, we held our second free-to-attend webinar and our experts discussed their views on what 2021 might hold for key areas of connectivity. Topics included developments in 5G, rail connectivity, converged networks and Open RAN. The recording of the webinar can be viewed here.
Towercos have opened up to new products and services as mobile network operators divest their non-core assets – not only towers, but also enterprise data centres and small cells.
