The event will discuss the impact that LTE-A Pro and Gigabit LTE will have on the market, and how the technology will pave the way for the introduction of 5G.

"By the end of the year, there should be more than 20 live markets. This is a great advancement for Gigabit LTE and I look forward to hearing what our expert panelists have to say in San Francisco."
