5G Beyond the Hype: Value And Building Blocks



Date & Time

Monday, 27 Feb 2017

16:15 - 17:45


4G was barely being deployed when 5G began being discussed. After several years of hype, many people have no clear idea of what 5G actually is or, more to the point, what value it will add to their business beyond building bigger and faster data pipes. Work on 5G has reached the point that there are clear qualitative, and disruptive, differences between it and forerunner technologies, while significant steps have been made towards realising them. This session aims to showcase what the significance of 5G really will be for the telecoms industry and all those that depend on connectivity, as well as highlight the progress towards achieving the technological elements of 5G to date.
