About the Event

Technically Speaking is the new Division of Information Technology speaking series. At the request of the vice president and CIO, Dee Childs, the Division of IT has rebranded IT Forum into Technically Speaking to encourage professional development, and share even more intriguing content and hear from relevant speakers.

Technically Speaking events offer expert presentations on a variety of important information technology topics. Speakers vary from Texas A&M University leaders to nationally recognized leaders outside of the University.

You will now receive continuing education credits for attending these events. When attending the event, sign in at the attendance table.

Meet the Speakers

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) recently approved the launch of Citizens Broadband Radio Services (CBRS), an innovative framework for the shared access to 150 MHz of new wireless spectrum in the 3.55 - 3.70 GHz band. CBRS will provide a significant source of new spectrum to meet the demand for mobile connectivity and next generation applications and services. Through the CBRS Alliance (a consortium of commercial organizations supporting CBRS), the industry has formally adopted the application of LTE technology to CBRS. CBRS is a paradigm shift in the networking model for property owners and network operators. For the first time, universities will have the option to deploy private cellular networks providing all of the advantages of LTE without having to acquire expensive FCC licenses. In a campus setting, it is possible to see a future world of ubiquitous indoor and outdoor coverage delivered over a single radio network infrastructure that can support multiple services and service providers.
