Dynamic Spectrum Alliance

The Dynamic Spectrum Alliance will head to Paris, France for its Eighth Annual Global Summit. The 2020 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 that can be coordinated to lower the cost and increase the capacity of 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.
