BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 27, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS 2017 -- As a veteran of multiple new generations of mobile technology over decades, InterDigital (NASDAQ:IDCC) is in a unique position to understand how 5G will come to market. And while general industry consensus is that 5G will be “deployed” by 2020 and potentially as early as 2018, in truth 5G will be a staged project that will roll out over close to a decade. At Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona (February 27-March 2, 2017), InterDigital will illustrate the expected rollout of 5G through multiple demos representing unique stages in device and network deployment through 2025.
“At InterDigital, we’ve always prioritized an understanding of real-world scenarios and capabilities over some of the hype that can characterize our industry, and our presence this year in Barcelona is about aligning technologies with their expected rollout in a rational way – including technologies that won’t be pervasive in the market for the better part of a decade,” said Dr. Robert DiFazio, Vice President, InterDigital Labs. The company’s presence at MWC 2017 showcases 'The 5G Timeline' through the following technology demonstrations:
In addition to demonstrations, InterDigital will host “Crosshaul – The Fusion of Fronthaul and Backhaul in 5G,” a live panel featuring industry leaders from Ericsson, 5TONIC, Telefonica, 5G Office of Taiwan, Nokia Bell Labs and InterDigital, on Tuesday, February 28 at 11:00 a.m. CET. The panel will also be available during and after the session on InterDigital’s website here.
Attendees of Mobile World Congress can see InterDigital’s 5G demos and IoT demos, at InterDigital’s pavilion in Hall 7, Stand 7C61.
