Clash of the Start-ups

The 5G use case race is on! 5G is an ecosystem-game, where telcos, technology providers, academia, vertical markets and more need to collaborate to bring new services and applications to market. With the global Tier 1 CSPs now having launched their 5G networks, they are now in the hunt of the partners who will work with them to achieve this.

Does your business have a product that could help accelerate the CSPs’ 5G monetisation or network evolution? 5G World is looking for the World’s most innovative businesses, to place them in front of a global audience of service and technology providers eager to source new partners.

We are looking for true innovators, so there is no entry fee for the competition!
