Industry Voices—Schoolar: RAN vendors will finally see growth thanks to 5G
As expected, the Mobile World Congress Americas event held in early September in Los Angeles, California, was a hotbed of 5G announcements. Verizon took the wraps off its 5G (or 5G-like to be specific) fixed wireless access service. This new service comes with an Oct. 1 launch date. AT&T announced Ericsson, Nokia and Samsung as its 5G network vendors. T-Mobile added Ericsson to its already-announced 5G partnership with Nokia. But the US isn’t alone in making 5G news.
