Wireless testers reveal shape of the network to come

Jon Gold | Sept. 14, 2015
Virtualized networks, small cells, LTE-U and lots of millimeter-wave capability are the components of the future network, according to the wireless testing companies that help shape them.

Moreover, both Korlepara and Roessler agreed that LTE-U technology – Qualcomm’s proposed frequency-sharing standard that uses 5GHz frequencies to help offload traffic – is going to work the way it should, contrary to the warnings of consumer advocates and Wi-Fi focused companies like Google and Broadcom.

“If you look at the utilization of the 5GHz spectrum … you can tell it’s not so much utilized like the Wi-Fi community thinks it is,” Roessler said. “I believe there will be enough room for both to exist.”
