Extending the 5G experience with Wi-Fi 6

In this session, we’ll explore the intersection of Wi-Fi and cellular networks to learn how Wi-Fi 6 and 5G offer complementary paths to satisfy demanding new networking requirements. We’ll examine the commercial forces driving mobile operators to develop 5G networks, the technological building blocks at their disposal, and the comparative advantages and constraints of Wi-Fi 6 and the 5G New Radio in relation to specific use cases. Participants will learn how technology decisions made today will shape future commercial relationships between locally-managed, private networks and global service providers, take away a framework for understanding the implications of 5G for private networking needs, and evaluate the prospects for enterprise Wi-Fi to become an on-ramp to 5G networks and services.
