Start: Monday 8 May 2017

End: Monday 8 May 2017

5G is no longer a buzzword or a hype, but a reality that will reshape Europe’s society and economy in the next decade. The 5G era will be an age of boundless connectivity, enriching people’s lives and transforming industrial processes.

Join us to hear from the writers of GSMA’s latest report on 5G. The researchers will explain the potential of 5G in very concrete terms, from improved access to medical treatment to low-power, sensor-driven smart parking and holographic conference calls. We will also have several important players of the digital ecosystem on stage who will elaborate on their vision and plans for the 5G era.
