“As our ninth annual Global Summit approaches, we are excited to host an agenda of such influential speakers from around the world,” said Martha Suárez, President of the DSA. “With so many significant advancements in the area of spectrum policy in recent days, such as the decision by Kenya’s Communications Authority to authorize the use of TV White Space (TVWS) and the decision by the Ministry of Innovation, Science and Economic Development (ISED) Canada on the Technical and Policy Framework for Licence-Exempt Use in the 6 GHz Band, now is an exciting time to be discussing spectrum sharing successes. It is vital that we continue this positive momentum, by engaging with regulators and industry representatives from different regions such as Asia-Pacific, Africa, Europe, Americas, the Middle East and beyond.”
The 2021 DSA Global Summit will focus on success stories for connectivity in various spectrum bands across continents, updates on the adoption of dynamic spectrum access technologies, and an emphasis on the continued need for inclusion to bridge the digital divide. Sessions will also cover the transformation potential and the economic benefit of spectrum sharing frameworks, like Wi-Fi 6E and CBRS.
