5G wireless services will constitute an integral part of the future gigabit communication network infrastructure, promising a wide range of innovations with far-reaching societal impacts. In addition to novel services for consumers, 5G is expected to support the Internet of Things (IoT) and allow configuring specialized services for sectors such as manufacturing, transportation and health care. The technologically more complex networks and services will require an appropriate fabric of norms, coordinating mechanisms, regulation and other supporting institutional arrangements. The work in this area discusses principles of sound 5G policy that will help harness the tremendous potential of next-generation wireless innovation for business, government, and society.
