We are on the cusp of a generational shift --- in wireless networks. New generations takeover from the old ones -- because they have to. The next generation of wireless Internet -- dubbed 5G -- is coming fast because radically new technology is required to connect us faster and better. From augmented reality to autonomous cars, we are facing a new era of connectivity. Also, 5G is needed to connect the so-called Internet of Things and, basically, the Internet of Everything. Chances are your recent holiday shopping spree will help catapult us to where each American home will have 50 connected devices (an estimate by Gartner for the year 2020). But the future will require some creative engineering, bold policy decisions, and all of us working in the same direction. Our panel will look at the near future of 5G wireless -- if we make it happen.
