ATIS Discusses Its 5G Plans at Chicago Symposium

As of now, 4G networks are the cellular networks that everyone wants access to, but 5G is the next generation of networks that everyone is going to be trying to hop onto. ATIS is one company that is looking to advance its 5G Network Evolution and the company announced its agenda at last week’s 5G Symposium in Chicago.

"5G is unique in that it is both a revolutionary and evolutionary technology. One of ATIS' goals is to help service providers leverage the strategic investment made in 4G to ensure 5G success," ATIS President and CEO Susan Miller said in a  recent statement. "To do this, ATIS builds on its leadership in previous generations of wireless technology, and draws on its extensive track record in delivering forward-looking industry consensus.”

Specifically, the company is undertaking a rather large North American market analysis that defines the network evolution from 4G LTE to 5G. The project that the company is working on is geared toward moving the industry blueprint forward when it comes to evolving from 4G to 5G networks. While this is going on in the United States, there are other companies that are working to bring this kind of technology to the market all over the world.

There are some companies that are even bringing this tech to countries that are at a loss financially when compared to North America; for example, places like South Korea. ATIS is working hard to make sure it’s 5G networks are going to be satisfying regulatory requirements as well as speed requirements. All of these things were talked about when ATIS hosted the 5G symposium in Chicago. The symposium bought service providers as well as vendors together with government representatives to discuss the 5G roadmap.
