Radio Design’s webinar focused on the deployment of the 700 MHz frequency band. This new spectrum is in great demand across the world, mainly due to its long anticipated use as low band 5G spectrum.
Whether you are an operator with newly acquired 700 MHz spectrum, or you are preparing for an upcoming auction, watch the webinar below which explores the potential of this band, as well as how to prepare for potential challenges when deploying.
Radio Design’s founder – Eric Hawthorn – kicks things off by analysing the benefits of deploying the 700 MHz band in the real world, before passing over to Global Engineering Director – Steve Shaw – who explores some of the technical problems which can arise, as well as some of the solutions. Last but not least, COO and co-owner of Keima – Iris Barcia – provides her insight into the benefits of deploying the 700 MHz band.
