LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) May 28, 2020
Wireless networks have transformed how we interact with the world around us. But what does the future of this technology hold? And what innovations can we expect to see from the fifth-generation mobile infrastructure known as “5G?” ACT | The App Association aims to find out through a special public webinar with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) this Thursday, May 28th, at 1 PM ET.
"A Conversation with FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr on Commission Priorities for 5G and the New 5G Upgrade Order" aims to elucidate the FCC’s views regarding 5G.
Today, the mobile app economy is valued at $1.7 trillion and currently employs nearly 6 million Americans across every state in the nation. The COVID-19 public health crisis has shined a light on just how valuable this economy is; mobile capabilities have provided tremendous benefit during these times of need. Remote patient monitoring, telemedicine, remote work, and distance learning have all surged in popularity in recent months as the pandemic shut down other crucial facets of society.
As America’s regulator of airwave resources, the FCC is committed to advancing 5G and enabling further innovation with mobile technology. Commissioner Brendan Carr will be representing the FCC during the virtual seminar.
Carr has championed numerous FCC policy changes to facilitate the rapid development of 5G networks. Most recently, he announced a new 5G Upgrade Order. Intended for a June vote, this multi-year effort by Congress and the FCC would streamline equipment upgrades for existing cellular towers. It will certainly be a central talking point of the event.
