Digital Symposium

Getting the best out of 5G LIVE returns as a 1 Day Digital Symposium on Tuesday the 20th 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, this Digital Symposium will take stock of 5G’s performance in its first year. 

We will discuss how vendors and service providers can work together to make the various stages of the transition to 5G friction-free and look at how 5G operators, with their suppliers and ecosystem partners, can unleash business opportunities through technology and business model innovations.

Session One

One year into commercial 5G services, the industry has demonstrated the potential of the new technologies, especially to the consumer market. To deliver on 5G’s high promises, the industry needs to continue to evolve its 5G capability and proposition, but such migration will not be without challenges. In this panel discussion, the guests will cover topics including:

  • What sets advanced 5G apart from what we have already seen?
  • How can advanced 5G deliver on the high customer promises?
  • How to avoid potential pitfalls in the transition?

Session Two

The telecom operators running 5G services will find that the business world has very different demands on services from consumer market. These range from time to market and expected “five-nine” availability to service level agreement and new billing mechanisms, and everything in between. Panellists at this discussion will exchange ideas on how to make 5G more relevant and more appealing to certain industry and business sectors, and how to offer targeted solutions to address the pain points of enterprises and public sector organisations.

  • What new values will incentivise industries to adopt 5G?
  • How do new technologies like AI, AR/VR, cloud compute, help tap the enterprise opportunities?
  • How can vendors and ecosystem partners work with 5G operators to bridge industry know-how gaps?
  • How can 5G managed security service providers utilize AI to expand scope of managed security offerings
