You want spectrum! You want spectrum! You want spectrum! Everybody gets spectrum!

Good news: You own spectrum. Actually, we all do. Bad news: That doesn’t necessarily mean anything. Turns out there’s all kinds of spectrum — licensed, unlicensed, shared. And true “ownership” can get quite complicated.

But what exactly is spectrum? Let’s just say, without it, your phone wouldn’t be able to send or receive anything. In other words, that device you’ve come to rely on and adore wouldn’t work.

We’ll dig deeper into that and more in this episode, as we head back to school for Spectrum 101 with our very special guests Dean Brenner and Alice Tornquist, Senior Vice President and Vice President of Spectrum Strategy and Technology Policy here at Qualcomm as well as Danny Tseng from Corporate Technical Marketing.
