And now a bit of 5G news from Anritsu and Qualcomm:
From Smart Cities Dive:
AT&T named Charlotte, NC; Raleigh, NC and Oklahoma City as three more locations where it will roll out its 5G network this year.
In a release, AT&T said it was deliberately targeting a mix of large and mid-sized cities, saying "all Americans should have access to next-gen connectivity to avoid a new digital divide."
The entire QF team will be attending IMS/IEEE this year in Philadelphia. This years show will focus on advancements in health and medicine via Microwave, RF, and Mm-wave technology, and the usual players will be there showcasing new products for aerospace, defense, 5G, communications, etc.
You can find us at the show, and/or one of the following supplier booth's below:

QuantumFlow has returned from another week of CES madness. Some of the notable topics featured and discussed - the global roll-out of 5G, smart cities impacting local societies, iterations of AI, and of course the buzzword that we've all been hearing more and more the last few years - IoT (Internet of Things).
From CNBC Mad Money:
- "Mad Money" host Jim Cramer sat down with Skyworks Solutions CEO Liam Griffin to discuss how companies like his will tackle booming mobile growth.
- Griffin said technology companies "never anticipated what mobile was going to do" for the world and the global economy.
- Developing 5G networks will have to be the ultimate solution to what currently amounts to a "digital traffic jam" in mobile usage, the CEO said.
Steve Mollenkopf, CEO of Qualcomm Incorporated, shows how Qualcomm is leading the way in 5G connectivity.
There are a lot of interesting and innovative applications surfacing worldwide, therefore we want to take a moment to dedicate periodic posts highlighting our Applications page. In this weeks edition we link to articles covering how 5G data speeds will help evolve the medical industry; the first nanosatellite to beam a smarthphone call from space; wireless enabled clothing and wearable biometric rings to help replace passwords, keys, and credit cards; and how airplanes are turning into communications satellites.
We're seeing the campaign for satellites to help propel the development of new 5G data speeds. Check out this interview with Magali Vassiere, Director of Telecommunications and Integrated Applications on ESA's partnership with the industry to develop and demonstrate the added value that satellite brings in the context of 5G.
