University of Utah / National Science Foundation


This webinar introduced listeners to a unique opportunity through POWDER (Platform for Open Wireless Data-driven Experimental Research), a mobile and wireless research platform. The platform is a National Science Foundation (NSF) funded city-scale “living laboratory” and is part of the NSF Platforms for Advanced Wireless Research (PAWR) program.

BEC Technologies


All FCC funding programs have compliance standards to be met and deadlines to meet them. Compliance reporting is never easy, and it should not be left to the last minute or dependent upon requests for deadline extensions. This session will outline the situations where compliance reporting is required, assess possible strategies to manage those compliance reporting obligations, and provide a quick survey of FCC reporting options in order to remain compliant.

DISH’s 5G Deployment:  Exploring Opportunities with Rural Carriers


In July 2019, DISH distributed an RFI/RFP to dozens of vendors in connection with its planned 5G deployment.  As the RFI/RFP explained, DISH is planning to build a greenfield, standalone, and cloud-native 5G network. The timeline of this network will start with a trial of 5G wireless services in an individual market beginning in early 2020, continue with a commercial launch of initial use cases and markets by the end of 2020, and a nationwide deployment of 5G wireless services to be completed by the first half of 2023.

Additionally, as reported, DISH entered into a series of agreements and arrangements with the United States government, T-Mobile and Sprint that materially impact its deployment plans and will facilitate and accelerate its entry into the wireless market as a nationwide facilities-based carrier.

This webinar discussed the possible opportunities for rural carriers associated with DISH’s 5G deployment and the set of agreements referenced above.  The webinar provided an overview of DISH’s deployment plans and highlighted partnership opportunities with rural carriers, including those related to fiber and transport.

Nokia Educational Series with RWA


Fixed and Mobile networks are evolving in the same direction towards better coverage and higher speeds. 5G will unlock Gigabit speeds and massive connectivity and transform our lives in ways only limited by our imagination. Speed of light is not fast enough to support 5G latency requirements therefore we will have to redesign the network to support 5G use cases.

The presentation will de-mystify 5G for Rural Operators and share latest news on 5G developments and deployments.

The audience will learn about the evolution of RAN and CORE to support 5G and the impact of 5G on Fiber networks. A four-minute video will be shown to demonstrate industrial use case for 5G and the significance of latency in the future 5G network.

Nokia Educational Series with RWA


Nokia and RWA Member, Copper Valley, presented a webinar titled, “Evolution of Voice from VoLTE to 5G”.

Happily, IMS is advertised to be “access transparent” so no big deal, right? Or is it? The reality isn’t quite as clean as the advertising might lead you to believe.

In this webinar our presenters discussed the evolution from a VoLTE network to a voice over 5G network, the interim steps, and the migration period it will require.
