Executives from C Spire, Dish, Ericsson, T-Mobile to Address the 2017 Spectrum Pipeline
Washington, D.C., March, 7, 2017 – The FierceWireless Executive Breakfast will open Competitive Carriers Association’s (CCA) Mobile Carriers Show (MCS) with executives from C Spire, Dish, Ericsson and T-Mobile examining strategies for maximizing network resources through spectrum. The panel, entitled The 2017 Spectrum Pipeline will take place on Wednesday, April 5 at 8:30 am, and is sponsored by T-Mobile. MCS runs April 5-7 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
Spectrum has become even more important as data consumption continues to soar. In addition to compiling low-band spectrum to increase their coverage footprints, operators are looking to mid- and high-band airwaves to densify their networks and ramp up capacity. And unlicensed spectrum has become a key focal point as carriers enter the 5G era.
Panelists will examine how carriers can maximize the unique traits of spectrum bands to create ubiquitous, reliable networks; best strategies for refarming spectrum for LTE and next-generation technologies; the most valuable bands for 5G and the types of transactions that are likely to occur; and the results of the 600 MHz incentive auction. Panelists include:
- Eric Graham, Senior Vice President, Strategic Relations, C Spire
- Mariam Sorond, Vice President of Technology Development, Dish
- Gowton Achaibar, Vice President, Head of Strategy & Technology, Ericsson
- Steve Sharkey, Vice President, Government Affairs, Engineering and Technology Policy, T-Mobile
- Colin Gibbs, Editor, FierceWireless, moderator
An additional registration fee of $50 is required and includes breakfast; attendees will be able to ask their own questions to the panel during the event.
