5G World Awards

Recognising excellence in 5G research and development

About 5G World Awards

The 5G World Awards aim to recognise the best and brightest from the 5G and LTE communities, serving as the industry’s opportunity to praise, recognise and endorse the latest developments in 5G research, product development and innovative use cases and network architecture. The categories will not only cover the wide range of 5G technologies, but also acknowledge the work being done in bridging the gap between LTE and 5G. Judged by senior analysts and industry experts from across the globe, the categories are designed to represent the entire eco-system and R&D process, from the initial concept stages, to successful trials and demonstrations of LTE and 5G technology.
