Investment, Innovation and Disruption: Telco Reinvented

So much more than 5G!

The era of Big 5G is alive and well as North American network operators continue to reduce their dependence on 3G and 4G networks and seek payback for the billions spent on delivering faster speeds, lower latency, and greater capacity in our mobile networks.

Bear Companies

My companies have been to a large number of conferences over the years and we have never had anything close to the responses we got from the BIG 5G conference. The format of talks, exhibits and meetings was extraordinary and highly worth our time and money. We cannot recommend this event enough to any company, no matter the size, it will truly blow you away.
