The finite resource of radio spectrum is vital for mobile network performance and customer experience. Using this precious resource more efficiently has always been a key objective for mobile network operators (MNOs). Spectrum efficiency is not just a question of mobile standards, even though each new generation is more spectrally efficient than the previous one. Which is why the efficiency discussion today goes beyond 5G New Radio (NR) and the 5G promise for optimal use of network resources.

Join Dr. Konstantinos Stavropoulos, solution marketing manager at EXFO, and Gabriel Brown, principal analyst at Heavy Reading, for an insightful discussion on a hot mobile industry topic. In this webinar, you will learn:

  • Which factors affect spectrum use, and why spectrum efficiency remains a challenge for mobile networks including 5G
  • How spectrum efficiency should be defined
  • Ways to make the best use of spectrum in the era of 5G
  • Lessons from leading MNOs on improving spectrum efficiency
