Ofcom to Dole Out More Spectrum
5G services are expected to commercialize in just 3 to 4 years. The UK’ state regulator, Ofcom, has been preparing the airwaves for the anticipated roll-out. Ofcom believes 5G services will focus on a) enhanced mobile broadband, b) massive machine-type communications, and c) “ultra-reliable and low-latency” communications. Ofcom has declared “these different services have different requirements in terms of speed, coverage and reliability, which will demand different network solutions and different deployment models, an appropriate network infrastructure and access to different spectrum bands.” These aspirations will keep Ofcom busy over the next 3 to 5 years as it attempts to keep the UK’s mobile cellular industry at the forefront of innovation.
