5G FOCUS webinar: Sector Specific 5G & Private Networks
Since the first commercial launch in April 2019, 5G is becoming mainstream with more MNOs around the globe embarking on the 5G journey. MNOs are looking for new business cases and revenue models to replace the slowly eroding revenues of traditional services given the potential benefits of 5G in enabling economy-wide digital transformation. The enterprise sector is being prioritized by mobile operators and their suppliers as they see more opportunities for revenue growth across specific sectors.
5G can offer significant improvements by providing the foundation to take advantage of technologies like SA, ORAN, Edge/Cloud Computing, AI, Big Data Analytics, and xR etc., to accelerate economy-wide digital transformation across consumer, enterprise/industry, and government sectors. It is interesting to note that whilst 5G operators are focusing on the best way to deploy 5G core networks, how to exploit edge computing and whether open RAN represents a significant new opportunity across sectors, enterprises are building their own mobile private networks using LTE and 5G and potentially challenging the operators at their own game.
This “5G FOCUS: Sector Specific 5G & Private Networks” webinar* will examine the technological, commercial, and policy & regulatory developments and implications covering;
- Sector Specific 5G trends and outlook
- Policy approaches to Sector Specific 5G and Public/Private Networks
- Public and private networks for Sector Specific 5G use
- Technical and commercial enablers
- Ecosystem collaboration, partnerships, and BMs
*This webinar is by invitation only and registration is subject to final approval from the organizer.
