Broadband Breakfast Live Online on Wednesday, December 9, 2020 — 5G Wireless Infrastructure and Municipal Rights-of-Way

Published

on

See “In A Debate Over Municipal Rights-Of-Way, Industry and Public Representatives Attempt to Find A Path Forward,” Broadband Breakfast, December 15, 2020

Our newest series is “A No-Nonsense Guide to 5G,” which will explore the policy, technology and practical questions about 5G. They include what’s real and what’s hype, trusted partners, transformative apps in the enterprise, wireless infrastructure facilities, and continued modernization of the nation’s spectrum policies.

Wednesday, December 9, 2020, 12 Noon ET — “A No-Nonsense Guide to 5G: Wireless Infrastructure, Municipal Rights-of-Way and the 5G Rural Fund”

  • To realize the promise of 5G, far more base stations — wireless infrastructure facilities — will be necessary. 5G facilities and towers may not be as big as in previous generations of wireless technology. Still, the need for far more facilities has already created tensions with municipalities over rights-of-way. How can these conflicts be minimized? What are smart cities already doing to expedite wireless infrastructure deployment? Can the process be improved? Additionally, how will the FCC’s Rural Fund for 5G affect deployment?

Panelists include:

  • Tim Vogel, Senior Managing Associate General Counsel, Verizon Wireless
  • Gerard Lederer, Partner, Best Best & Krieger
  • Angelina Panettieri, Legislative Director, Technology and Communications, National League of Cities
  • John Howes, Counsel, Government Affairs, WIA
  • Drew Clark (Moderator), Editor and Publisher, Broadband Breakfast

Gerry is also one of the nation’s leading authorities on marketplace solutions for deployment of small cells and other wireless technologies, including municipal broadband and WiFi services.

Angelina Panettieri is Legislative Director, Technology and Communications for the National League of Cities, which represents the nation’s 19,000 cities, towns, and villages. Angelina manages telecommunications and technology issues for NLC on Capitol Hill, the FCC and other federal agencies.
