There’s no time to be offline. This becomes especially true as the Internet hosts more and more business-critical applications and services. While 5G is still around the corner, the throughput available today from cellular service providers can outperform traditional broadband circuits, and is often installed as a secondary network uplink for business continuity/ cellular failover. Yet backup is only the beginning. Wireless connectivity is easy to deploy, and is as fast as many wireline alternatives while being more resilient against service interruptions, making it increasingly viable as a primary connection. This panel will explore the use of wireless for enterprise including fixed wireless for wireline replacement, using wireless to back up wireline, and other use cases for evolving wireless technologies including 5G and the introduction and use of shared spectrum for wireless based on CBRS.
