Dynamic Spectrum Alliance

Global Summit

Washington D.C.

June 27th , 2019


The Dynamic Spectrum Alliance will head to Washington D.C., for its Seventh Annual Global Summit. The 2019 Global Summit brings together policy makers, regulators, academia, and private sector leaders in spectrum management to discuss and debate spectrum sharing methods and models, from exclusive use licensing to unlicensed spectrum allocations.

The Summit will explore how various spectrum sharing regulatory regimes across a variety of complementary spectrum bands can be coordinated to lower the cost of broadband to allow 5G and Internet of Things deployments across the globe and connect the remaining 4 billion to the digital economy.

The Dynamic Spectrum Alliance’s Global Summit is the premier event for policy makers, regulators, and industry personnel on Spectrum Sharing.
