5G MENA conference - Salience’s managing partner Ivan Skenderoski participated in the panel discussion on fibre-like services with 5G Fixed Wireless Access


In a lively discussion the panelists were trying to assess the potential of Fixed Wireless Access powered by 5G against the traditional fixed access technologies such as FTTH.

The discussion covered spectrum issues such as whether there is sufficient spectrum to be dedicated to fixed services and which spectrum has good propagation in the homes, technology issues such as real performance versus theoretical speeds and whether this solution is just a temporary fix or long-term solution. It was also mentioned that regulators in the Middle East are currently at early stages of evaluating the use of 5G for fixed services and there is no consolidated view on whether and how these technologies will be utilized.

Ana discussed her own career path in converting passion and skills into an impacting and rewarding profession, and how the company culture plays such an important role in attracting and developing exceptional talent.

Interested undergraduates and graduates whom can bring curiosity, intelligence and a burning desire to make things happen on the global stage should get in touch.
