It seems like yesterday when cellular carriers were advertising the new and faster 3G and 4G networks. It is well known that technology is ever evolving and changes day to day and year to year and it is mission critical to keep up with the times. The latest tag word in the cellular industry is 5G or the 5th Generation network. What does it mean?; What is it?; and How will 5th generation networks change the cellular world as we know it?



Mr. Underwood is a 2011 graduate of Louisiana Tech University with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering degree, with an emphasis in Electronics, Photonics, and Communications. His professional experience has been primarily focused on telecommunications, particularly cellular radio access networks. He is a Telecommunications engineer employed by M S Benbow & Associates providing wireless and cellular consulting services. Prior to this, he was with AT&T Wireless, responsible for the optimization, design, and performance of their cellular networks in the Gulf States Market for 7.5 years, including large venues and high profile events across Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, and NW Florida. Electronics and Computers are his life’s passion and he prides himself on never encountering a challenge that couldn’t be overcome through teamwork, outside-the-box thinking, and a desire to push the limits of what is thought to be possible.
