Today I'm talking with CommScope's Mark Gibson, who chairs the Forum's 6 Ghz Committee. Recently a larger 6 Ghz Multistakeholder group has been formed as well, combining the Forum's membership horsepower with the WiFi Alliance and broader industry stakeholders to tackle an aggressive timeline to operations in the band. Today, Mark will explain the background and get into how the groups work together.
