MWC23 Shanghai On-Demand – 5G Futures Summit Session 2
Unlocking the value of 5G-Advanced
The use case for 5G-Advanced is straightforward: enabling 5G to support new market demands while waiting for 6G to arrive. Strong interest in 5GAdvanced in support of multicast services and satellite integration highlights a focus on the technology as a break away from today’s 5G. However, expectations that the technology will be critical for network slicing and edge compute success shows that it’s simultaneously seen as an evolution that will support today’s 5G use cases.
Moderated by Terence Wong, Head of APAC 5G Industry and IoT at GSMA, was joined by the regions leading organisations in 5G advancements to discuss how 5G-Advanced will bring a new wave of wireless innovations that push technology boundaries and achieve performance improvements, better management and improved efficiency, and enhancement for specific use session. Watch the full session on-demand.
