The CTIA Race to 5G Summit .
A recap of the day's keynotes and panels.
About the Event.
The CTIA Race to 5G Summit brought together leaders from across the telecom landscape to address the international competition to lead the world in wireless, the risk of falling behind, the policies we need to win, and how 5G will impact a variety of sectors such as healthcare, energy and manufacturing.
More than 250 attendees heard from Senators Cory Gardner and Maggie Hassan, Rep. Susan Brooks, FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr, and NTIA Administrator David Redl, as well as senior business and technology leaders from Samsung, Ericsson, Qualcomm, Intel, Nokia, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon.
These business executives are investing in and building out the next-generation of wireless. By bringing their message to our nation’s capital directly, their presence underscored the importance of the U.S. winning the 5G race—and the urgency with which policymakers need to act to make that happen. See below for photos, video and presentations from the event.
