The Convergence between Fixed and Mobile: New Challenges ahead

Dates:
  • Thu 05 Nov 2020 13.00 - 14.00
  Add to Calendar 2020-11-05 13:00 2020-11-05 14:00 Europe/Paris The Convergence between Fixed and Mobile: New Challenges ahead

Convergence of fixed and mobile communications is a relevant trend in the development of EU system of communications in the long run. The complementarity of the two technologies is likely to be essential to progress further with 5G. The existing fixed infrastructure could supply backhaul for mobile infrastructures in some locations to save investment and speed up deployment of an integrated or converged infrastructure. However, there are limits of different kinds - geographic, economic, technical and regulatory - on how much the existing fixed infrastructure can be repurposed: the aim of the webinar is to discuss such challenges
