2-Day Digital Symposium

Getting the best out of 5G

This online event will take place as a 2-Day Digital Symposium on the 20th and 22nd October, 2020.

What's it all about?

Just over a year ago the world’s first commercial 5G networks went live. So far, over 70 mobile operators in more than 40 different countries have launched 5G services, bringing fast mobile and fixed wireless connectivity to millions of consumers. With the industry on the verge of embarking on the next phase of 5G development, now is a good time to take stock of 5G’s performance in its first year and start looking ahead towards what should be expected and avoided in the years to come.

In this 2-Day Telecoms.com Live Digital Symposium, our editors and special guests will discuss a string of topics centered upon 5G from consumers to enterprises, from AI to cloud, from technologies to business operations, that are most pertinent to the telecoms industry stakeholders.

Day One: Tuesday 21 July 2020 2:00-4:30 pm BST

One year after commercial 5G hit the market, the industry is on the verge of moving to the next phase, to turn customer promises into reality, especially for enterprises. This prospect is not only exciting, but also makes the embracing of artificial intelligence more urgent. Many telecom operators still rely on manual calculation to manage the lifecycle of their networks. This is both inefficient and error prone when it comes to 5G.

On Day 1 of this Telecoms.com Live Symposium series, our editors and guests will discuss how vendors and service providers can work together to make the various stages of the transition to 5G friction free. This will include how AI can support the transition and can improve operational efficiency in the whole lifecycle of 5G networks, from network planning through deployment to operation and maintenance.

Day two: Thursday 23 July 2020 2:00-4:30 pm BST

Research house Omdia has predicted that by 2024, over 300 5G networks will be launched and up to 13% of the world’s total mobile subscriptions will be on 5G. Meanwhile, more advanced industrial use cases will be realised with Next Generation 5G, in particular in sectors like manufacturing, retail, construction, transport, finance, and healthcare. 5G will deliver billions of additional value over the coming decade, Omdia forecasts.

On Day 2 of this Telecoms.com Live Symposium series, our editors and guests will discuss how 5G operators with their suppliers and ecosystem partners can unleash the business opportunities through technology and business model innovations.
