WASHINGTON – ITI President and CEO Dean Garfield released the following statement regarding the White House meeting to discuss 5G network technology, which he attended.
“There is no doubt that the pace at which we innovate and deliver new products will be fueled by how quickly we deploy and implement 5G technology. The next generation of wireless technology will be more than a faster smartphone – it will be precision agriculture that will help farmers harvest crops, telemedicine apps that keep people healthier, and augmented reality devices that transform the way we interact with each other and do business. But we will only get there with 5G. We thank the White House for today’s convening with industry, government and academia leaders, which we hope will spur better policy outcomes and quicker deployment of this crucial and vital technology to all Americans.”
