LTE World Summit and 5G World Summit

The LAUNCH 5G World Summit, taking place alongside the leading LTE World Summit eventin June, is already proving to be the must-attend global platform bringing together the world’s mobile broadband community to discuss the future of 5G and the transition to 5G from LTE and LTE-Advanced.

If LTE is the immediate future, what do we expect the impact of it to be on services, applications and economics, and do these impacts prepare the industry or hinder it when we move on to faster technologies with tougher demands for coverage, latency and bandwidth?  Is the LTE network future proof, or do the requirements for 5G change the game again?
