Session description

Continuing from the inaugural webinar hosted in September, which delved into the consumer perspective of 5G and how 5G value extends beyond connectivity, we present webinar #2 “The 5G Enterprise Revolution” of the GSMA 5G Futures Community webinar series which took place on Wednesday 6th December 2023.

The evolution of mobile connectivity is rapidly transforming the enterprise landscape, offering a plethora of advantages, including enhanced process control and innovative applications reliant on connected assets. As we briefly explored in our first webinar, the widespread adoption of 5G is being driven by its adaptability to various industries and the ever-evolving use cases that demand its advanced capabilities.

Yet, to ensure the sustainability of this industry, it is imperative to realise a return on the significant investments made in 5G networks. While 5G has already proven its worth through increased speed, reduced latency, and heightened security, many organisations grapple with monetising it, hampered by conventional connectivity business models that lack innovation, flexibility, and relevance in this new era. In this webinar, our focus shifts to the enterprise market, where we will hear from pioneering organisations that are at the forefront of leveraging 5G technology for their business applications.
