Network 2020 seminar at Mobile World Congress 2017
The web is awash with information about what 5G will deliver: extraordinarily fast broadband, highly responsive connectivity, ultra dense clusters of connections but beyond the technology how will it impact business?
To prepare the industry for 5G, the GSMA is helping to shape the strategic, commercial and regulatory framework. As 5G is defined and refined, the GSMA will also work with its members to identify and develop commercially viable 5G applications.
In this seminar we’ll bring together operators and vertical industries to discover if the flexible network that will be provided by 5G will unlock new commercial opportunities.
