Innovation to achieve ‘self-driving’ IMT-2020/5G networks, collaboration in the interests of 5G security and the value of ‘open’ network concepts were among the key topics discussed at an invitation-only meeting of ICT industry executives (‘CxOs’).
Industry collaboration will be key to security in the 5G era. The sharing of network infrastructure could help operators to deliver new services faster, at lower cost. 5G continues to highlight the necessity of investment in all-fibre networks. Machine Learning is certain to form part of our 5G future.
5G is expected to connect people, things, data, applications, transport systems and cities in smart, networked communication environments. It will transport a huge amount of data much faster, reliably connect an extremely large number of devices and process very high volumes of data with minimal delay.
