Towers: Essential to the Future of Wireless
Every time people try to write off the future for towers, it becomes evident once again: No towers, no 4G. No towers, no 5G. While not the new kid on the block, towers are quite frankly the host of every new technology that the wireless industry dreams up, from MIMO antennas to edge computing. T-Mobile’s 600 MHz 5G build? It’s on towers. The home for C-RAN baseband units? Towers. But there are clouds on the tower horizon. The success of towers has attracted low-cost companies with disruptive business models. How can established tower companies compete? How can towers face down health fears about 5G? This panel of experts will keep you up on the latest tower business trends.
