5G Wireless Will Redraw the Wireless Industry Map: Who Stands to Lose? - WSJ
March 25, 2018 | WSJ | By Christopher Mims.

Key takeaways:

• 5G will take a long, long time to deploy into urban areas, and even longer in rural areas

• Wireless network operators are going to spend untold billions creating the foundation for the future of wireless broadband networks

• 5G is The Final Solution for broadband wireless, finally delivering the promise of 3G and 4G through breaking the linkage between network capacity and network coverage.

Spectrum Auctions? There's an App for That
It only took 50 years for the feds to realize that economist Ronald Coase was right.

Silicon Valley Reborn as Smartphone Valley - CNBC
4 Oct 2011 | Financial Times| By: Chris Nuttall.

Apple’s unveiling of the iPhone 5 on Tuesday at its Cupertino HQis just the latest sign that Silicon Valley is taking on a fresh mantle of Smartphone Valley, with its growing reputation making it a magnet for mobile operators around the world.

AT&T, Verizon and Vodafone have all just opened research, testing and incubation centres in San Francisco and the Valley only weeks apart. weeks apart....The app culture that both have engendered means there is a race on among operators to feature the newest trends and advances in software first, amid fierce competition for the attention of Silicon Valley developers.

Vodafone’s lab allows developers to incubate their ideas and test how apps and services would perform on the worldwide networks it replicates at its facility.

“We want to bring to market these ideas and accelerate the process – the hope is that six to nine months after we prove something here, it can be in the hands of a user in one of our operating countries,”

Technological Opportunities, Job Creation, and Economic Growth | The White House
June 28, 2010 | New America Foundation | Larry Summers. Opening
up spectrum creates a foundation for new private sector investment and
economic activity – in mobile broadband and a range of other high-value
uses – that would not have been possible without the coordinating and
organizing role of govt. But there is another reason why reforming
spectrum policy is important. Mancur Olson wrote about the tendency of
stable societies to become sclerotic as entrenched interests blocked
progress. Similarly, Alexander Gerschenkron commented on the advantages
of “economic backwardness”: Countries late to industrialize bypass-with
an open canvas-many of the dead ends and outdated practices that
encumbered early industrializers. Spectrum policy reform is important
because it addresses a cutting-edge area where we would be disadvantaged
because our early lead in developing and deploying technologies of
yesterday leave us ill-equipped for tomorrow's technological challenges.

Why HP Thinks Sensors Will Lead to The Next Big Wave of Computing -
Published: May 28, 2010 "The basic premise of CeNSE is to create a
worldwide network of sensors that is connected to the Internet, which in
turn creates a feedback loop for objects and people. An example HP
often gives is putting thousands of sensors on a bridge, to measure
vibrations." "HP foresees services arising out of sensor data. If
traffic services were based on sensor data from bridges and roads, then
sensor data would allow companies to "build awareness" and perhaps even
deliver services that people will pay for. Consumers may be willing to
pay for the "best decision" about which route to take to a destination,
he explained. That decision would come from a combination of sensors in
the road and real-time analytics performed by HP, or a company that
processes the data."

Wireless Carriers Look Beyond Phones For Growth -
SEPTEMBER 28, 2009 | Wall Street Journal | by Jeffry Bartash.
Wireless networks are not just for cellphones and laptops anymore.
Carriers are striking deals to supply Internet access for electronic
book readers, a satellite-navigation device as part of a mounting
effort by wireless carriers to tap fresh sources of growth as the number
of Americans without mobile phones shrinks. Industry executives and
analysts believe an array of devices - some that already exist and
others not yet invented - will eventually be connected to mobile
networks. Some devices that might fit into the category include cameras,
digital photo frames, mobile game devices e.g. Nintendo DS or even
aircards for autos.

There's also ample opportunity beyond the consumer market in areas such
as health care or energy - what Yankee Group analyst Carl Howe calls
machine-to-machine services. Wireless utility meters or wireless health
monitors are two such examples. "This is a great growth opportunity,"
Howe said.
