5G Developer Labs & 5G Seminars

What are 5G Developer Labs and how will you benefit from attending?

GSMA 5G Developer Labs have been designed to bring together leading stakeholders in the industry – Developers, Operators and Platform Providers – to establish a set of common APIs that Operators can implement, ensuring a level of commonality required to achieve global, interoperable scale.

We want to hear from Developers about the challenges they face in creating MEC applications at scale, the requirements they would have from operators to do this today, and a wish list of what they want to see going into the 5G Era. The GSMA will facilitate this discussion, with our global member Operators, to ensure a common consensus is reached.

The 5G Developer Labs will kick off in January 2020, with a Thought Leaders Lab, followed by a session during MWC Barcelona in February. Following this, we will hold Labs in strategic locations globally to ensure we hear from as many developers, verticals and operators as we can.

Networking is a major part of the Lab series, and individuals have made important connections at the Labs which they have gone on to work with.
