5G Brooklyn Summit

Every spring, the best telecom engineers in the world come to meet their peers. Ted Rappaport, Andrea Goldsmith, Gerhard Fettweis, slews of CTOs, and many others will present. Do watch the IEEE Livestream. Ted and Gerhard will present the future, including terahertz. I'll be asking about:

Reach of mmWave/density of cells required. Who will do mmWave in the next 5 years?

Latency of 5G air interface. Now 8-12 ms in the field, will it come down to the 1-4 ms in the lab?

Edge Clouds where? Tower, local in C-RAN or exchange, further back and slower?

How to simplify standards to bring down cost and time to market?

Who, what, where, when, and how?

Welcome  Asia is installing hundreds of thousands of 5G radios and adding 5G subs by the tens of millions. The west is far behind. 200,000,000 in 2020

The demand is there, and most of the technology works. Meanwhile, the hype is unreal. Time for reporting closer to the truth.
