Spectrum 2023
​An overview of spectrum reallocation in the United States

January 26th, 2023 Location: Zoom and LinkedIn Virtual Event

About this event:

The NTIA and FCC have been hard at work over the past few years, reallocating reserved spectrum for better use and creating techniques for sharing the spectrum so more can enjoy its use. In 2020, we saw the opening of Spectrum at 3.5 GHz in what are known as the CBRS bands, at 6 GHz to expand the license-free allocations for WiFi in 2021, and many more. Now other countries around the world are following suit. In this event, we will look at the political, regulatory, and technical aspects of these spectral reallocations and discuss activities and potential outcomes of events that are still proceeding.

We look forward to you joining us for this annual deep dive into Spectrum
