ALBANY, N.Y., Nov. 9, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Interest in private LTE & 5G networks deployment has surged in recent years, especially among enterprise markets. Stewart predicts in the next 5-6 years, most companies will deploy 5G in combination with ethernet and other existing connectivity setups. .mktoForm .mktoRadioList > label, .mktoForm .mktoCheckboxList > label { font-weight: normal; document.write (document.charset ? document.write ("'>"); /*Added by Arne document.write ('&cb=' + m3_r); padding: 9px 13px; if (document.MAX_used != ',') document.write ("&exclude=" + document.MAX_used); The Bundesnetzagentur, or BNetzA, announced that a year after opening applications for 3.7 GHz-3.8 GHz spectrum for campus 5G networks it has received a total of 93 submissions resulting in the granting of frequencies in 88 cases thus far. position: static !important; Previously, I’ve talked about 5G network operations with its key pillars being AI, automation and analytics. .subscribe-wrap input[type="email"] { display: inline-block; url('https://mk0vojovowefnkok7c2h.kinstacdn.com/wp-content/themes/zeen-child/webfont/NokiaPureHWeb_Rg.woff') format('woff'), url('https://mk0vojovowefnkok7c2h.kinstacdn.com/wp-content/themes/zeen-child/webfont/NokiaPureHWeb_Lt.woff') format('woff'), Deutsche Telekom has repeatedly criticised the cost of 5G spectrum and the impact operators’ heavy spending will have on network rollout. } } background-color: #ffffff !important; /* stuff from before */ document.write ("&tags=5g%2Cgermany%2Cprivate-networks%2Cspectrum"); .mktoCheckboxList, .mktoRadioList { top: -1px; border-bottom-color: #C5C7CC !important; “Just because you got a wired network doesn’t mean it lasts forever,” says Stewart.
