As US industries turn to next-generation technology for real-time data flows and automation, demand for 5G equipment has fueled a wave of new job opportunities. What best practices can government and industry undertake to help this trend to endure? What spectrum management and regulatory policies will maximize 5G’s potential to create jobs?
On this episode, Shane speaks with Michael Mandel, Chief Economic Strategist at the Progressive Policy Institute (PPI), and Sal D’Itri, Chairman of the National Spectrum Consortium and Vice President and General Manager, Public Sector for Federated Wireless. Together, Sal, Michael, and Shane discuss a PPI report Michael recently co-authored for the National Spectrum Consortium called, “The Third Wave: How 5G Will Drive Job Growth Over the Next Fifteen Years,” which gives government and industry a roadmap for building 5G networks and creating jobs in the process.
