Re: Moving to 5G
@mpouraryan, very interesting!  And true, that is a decision he will have to make and a pathway he will have to choose.  Clearly the opportunities are great if he moves into the new horizon and is not captured by the limits of what he has been involved with.

Re: Moving to 5G
@mhhf1ve, great vision!  You should "consult" with the Musk teams!  Sounds like your Intellectual Property can provide some keys!  Just don't leave Telco Transformation; we need your ideas here!

I will have to say I knew you when!

Re: Moving to 5G
To "implicity" build on your thoughts, @SKyNews, for instance, has done a fabulous job with its' work highlighting Plastics in the Ocean and they did one of the best coverages about the President's Decision regarding Israel's Capital (without getting too political)--the point being that James got the "nod" right now--the question is whether he'd emerge from Rupert's Shadow and be his own man....time will tell....

Re: Moving to 5G
Satellites in LEO that can be launched cheaply could connect with a mesh network on the ground.. and provide better coverage to both rural areas *and* urban cities. It could potentially be competitive with fiber -- if the spectrum used can handle all the traffic. That's the disruption that may be really necessary: getting wireless frequencies to handle more broadband capacity. 

I vaguely remember some far-out research that predicted nearly infinite capacity for wireless transmissions... but the technology for encoding-decoding the transmissions weren't quite ready for commercialization.

Re: Moving to 5G
A Fox and Disney merger would certainly change the media landscape... and might possible set up a further mega-merger for Fox-Disney and a communications company. Comcast already owns NBC. I could imagine Charter or some other CSP wanting to own Fox-Disney.

Re: Moving to 5G
@mpouraryan, he probably will be more open-minded.  And possibly he could look at the future through the wider media lens, with the responsibility of Disney & Co.?

Re: Moving to 5G
@mhhf1ve, well there you go!  I think that is very feasible.  I worked with a gentleman over 10 years ago who saw the future as satellites!  It might just take a new innovator to reframe what will work.

Re: Moving to 5G
Your Comments are correct as underscored by the report on the NY Times' DealBook--I gather the younger Mudroch is more open-minded.    It will be fascinating to be witness to it all....

Re: Moving to 5G
> "I believe the innovators with the first 5G will have invested enough that they will utilize a core set of standards and/or at least build bridges for the new ones, don't you think?"

Certainly. The race to deploy 5G networks is advanced by being the "first mover" to create the industry standard. Whoever is the first will likely have more of a chance to dictate how the 5G standards develop and expand -- and control the network's future. 

I'm wondering if SpaceX will be able to leapfrog some of the 5G developments by providing global broadband access with LEO satellites....

Re: Moving to 5G
@mpouraryan, really interesting!  Yes, I saw that this morning and that certainly will remap the territory if Fox-Disney merger takes place.  I also see speculation that James Merdoch may then be in line to succeed Igor with Disney!
