The convergence between fixed and mobile: new challenges ahead

Thursday 5th November, 13.00 – 14.00 CET

The convergence of fixed and mobile communications is a relevant trend in the development of the EU system of communications in the long run. The complementarity of the two technologies is likely to be essential to progress further with 5G. The existing fixed infrastructure could supply backhaul for mobile infrastructures in some locations to save investment and speed up deployment of an integrated or converged infrastructure. However, there are limits of different kinds – geographic, economic, technical and regulatory – on how much the existing fixed infrastructure can be repurposed: the aim of the webinar is to discuss such challenges.

 

This webinar is the 2nd in a series of five webinars discussing the impact of COVID-19 on the future of the 5G, exploring the topic from different perspectives: infrastructural, economic, geopolitical and technological. The online seminars are organised by the Florence School of Regulation – Communications and Media (FSR C&M) of the European University Institute (EUI), in the context of the project “Innovation and Intellectual Property in the Digital Age”.
