Forum Session
5G: the state of play
Tuesday, September 10, 2019, 2:00 PM - 3:15 PM, Room 4 - Helicopter

The future is 5G ā€“ and its advanced capabilities, high reliability, low latency and high speed will fundamentally transform societies and industries throughout the world. But when will the future be here ā€“ or has it already arrived? What is the current state of 5G network deployment in various emerging and developed markets? What concrete use cases and innovative applications have already been developed? What successful business models will best balance the cost of investment and uncertain demand against 5Gā€™s tremendous potential? Can any single stakeholder do it alone, or are collaborative partnerships not only smart, but essential? Should the 5G focus move beyond industrial growth towards providing a better platform to meet basic human needs throughout the world? Is it feasible for an emerging market to leapfrog to 5G or should they consider the current implementation of 4G networks?
