Since 2008, mobile traffic across the globe has increased at a rate of roughly 100 percent per year, while the available bandwidth, or spectrum, for data use has remained largely unchanged. During peak hours, wireless networks in major cities often reach a point of failure. With the explosion in online video traffic, which is predicted to occupy 66 percent of mobile traffic by 2017, industry, academia and government are searching for the future of mobile networks. The solution? To push beyond 4G networks and bring 5G to life and to consumers.
The 12th annual Texas Wireless Summit (TWS) provides a forum on emerging technology and business models for industry leaders and academics. Hosted by UT Austin's Wireless Networking and Communications Group (WNCG), the Summit offers direct access to cutting-edge research and innovations from industry leaders, investors, academics and startups.
