The announcement provides more details about the Next G Alliance:Designed to set the foundation for a vibrant marketplace for North American innovation in future generations of mobile technology, the Next G Alliance is named after its primary goal: to establish North American preeminence in the 5G evolutionary path and 6G development. Its work will encompass the full lifecycle of research and development, manufacturing, standardization and market readiness.The Next G Alliance says it will be holding its first meeting for members on Monday, November 16 to set the initiative’s overarching direction and strategy.
