The United States must allocate more mid-band spectrum for licensed commercial 5G use to enhance its economic and national security priorities. If it is not addressed, the present spectrum shortage in the United States could hinder technological innovation and give China a path to global leadership in the increasingly connected twenty-first century. 

Join CSIS for a fireside chat on the strategic national security imperative for reallocating spectrum for 5G with Federal Communications Commission Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel, followed by a panel of industry experts. Additional panelist information is forthcoming. To learn more, listen to this podcast for an insider's look at spectrum allocation, and check out these CSIS publications on spectrum, the national security benefits of reallocating spectrum, and U.S. leadership in next-generation networks.

This event is made possible by support from CTIA and its member companies.
