Re: happens soon
@JohnDrake Right now, I am having a problem with the Wi-Fi connection on my iPhone. The service provider is AT&T. Continually have to keep checking into my Wi-Fi network. Never happened before. My boyfriend's phone is under the same plan, and he's not having that problem. Wonder what is wrong.

Re: standardized
It's great when all parties agree to follow the standards. I hope this convergence is actually as good as expected and happens on schedule.

I hope this convergence happens soon, but for right now I cannot use a cell phone to call from my barn to my house because of the poor coverage. It is easier to use a citizens' band radio for that, right now, anyway.

According to the report the convergence of 5G and Wi-Fi will lead to a better user experience because a significant amount of data traffic from smartphones use Wi-Fi access. That will also create more opportunity for both Wi-Fi and cellular provders.

Re: standardized
Agreeing to as noted "Convergence of 5G and WiFi potentially could deliver big benefits to mobile operators, enterprise and public WiFi solution providers including cable operators," seems to be just where broadband should naturally head for the next few years, finding ways to combine the advanced technological leaps possbile to benefit operators and the users both.

<some cellular operators want a standardized solution, so they gain improved visibility and control into the configuration and management of WiFi access networks.> that does make sense. I think that has been the general trend for technology in the past, coming together in some form of standardization.

As Vice President of Global Healthcare at AT&T, Maria Lensing oversees the telecommunications operator's technology and professional services offerings across the spectrum of medical providers, from solo practitioners and walk-in clinics to giant hospital chains, medical-device vendors and consulting firms. Lensing also sees more interest from traditional service providers -- cable and telecom operators looking to expand or build relationships with their own medical communities, perhaps as an adjunct to smart-home successes or standalone.

Lensing, who took on this role almost a year ago in May 2018, oversees both the sales and technical teams responsible for developing growth initiatives for AT&T's Global Healthcare business -- including products, services and industry-specific solutions. She also very actively promotes business minority inclusion, education and female empowerment programs and has been recognized both within and outside AT&T. Some awards she's received include "Top 40 Under 40" and "Super Woman in Business" from the Memphis Business Journal.

Join Maria Lensing, VP of Global Healthcare at AT&T, on Tuesday, April 23 at 12:00 p.m. ET / 9:00 p.m. PT, when she's the guest on BBWN Radio, hosted by Broadband World News Editor Alison Diana. Register now!

So far, the agenda includes a discussion of technologies such as fiber and 5G; defining the needs and solutions for a widely diverse range of customers; partnering for success in a typically slow-moving, budget-constrained market; learning and dispersing best practices from other verticals and within other business groups; promoting diversity and female empowerment when so many say they're doing so but so little has changed; and what she hopes to accomplish in another year in this role.

Register and post your questions for Maria on BBWN Radio's easy-to-use chat board. We will get to as many questions as possible. Please post questions before and during the broadcast. Once you've registered, you will be led to the chat board page. Talk to you on April 23!

Tune in to Broadband World News Radio on February 14 at 11 a.m. ET / 8 a.m. PT / 4 p.m. UK when John Isch, Practice Director of the Network and Voice Center of Excellence at Orange Business Services, discusses use cases, ROI and misconceptions of software-defined wide-area networks, virtualization and cloud.

Just when you thought the answer to your next technology direction question was clear, the noise around multiple new technology options fills the Internet and airwaves. Multiple 5Gs are being deployed; there's CableLabs' 10G initiative; the ITU and IEEE are toiling around 50G PON – and we haven’t even talked about Wi-Fi6 yet! Is any of this real, do you have to pay attention or can you just let the dust settle and then decide?

Since waiting is often not the best option, let’s demystify technology options, their impact on your business, and how to prepare for whatever the future brings.

In this webinar, Service Providers will learn:

  • Current state of 5G and how it affects everyone, not only mobile network providers.
  • Latest technologies being developed and how they will benefit their networks and subscribers.
  • How to prepare their networks for the future – whatever it may hold.
