The 5G opportunity: driving digital transformation
Tuesday, September 26, 2017, 9:00 AM - 10:15 AM, Room 103-104-105

5G will play a fundamental role in accelerating digital transformation, with immense potential to disrupt business, industry, society and individual lives. It promises exponential increases in speed, traffic, reliability and coverage, combined with reduced latency and unimaginable flexibility. Seamless operation across multiple hybrid technologies will allow fully-configurable, dynamic networks to support multiple industries, use cases and personalized services. Managing the complexity, administering and orchestrating the network is an enormous challenge. How can we address the key issues of harmonized spectrum to enable investment, standardization and security? How important is it to establish a level playing field globally? How can cross-sector regulation best be managed? Which industry sectors will lead the 5G revolution – and will video be the killer service driving consumer adoption of 5G?
