5G Caribbean Virtual Summit – Day 1
Around the world, many countries are deploying 5G to pave the way for advanced services and applications. Despite common technical considerations that are necessary to maintain an interoperable ecosystem, each region has unique requirements, opportunities, and challenges that define their network. The Caribbean region is not exempt of this reality, their migration to this new technology will be facilitated by the collaboration with stakeholders that participate and supports Telecommunications and IT in the region.
Mobile evolution relies on many elements, from technology innovation in infrastructure and operations, to the regulatory framework that makes it a reality. The allocation of adequate spectrum and bandwidth has a great impact on the adaption of a variety of 5G services in terms of data speed, capacity, and reliability. Balancing the allocation to include other technologies that require their share of available spectrum, allowing stakeholders of the ecosystem to design adequate network architectures, technical and commercial solutions, and offer optimal level of services to the consumers, enterprises, and other verticals alike is paramount.
5G is a platform for new opportunities, and it can be configured considering various scenarios to leverage existing infrastructure and to plan the best way forward. The 5G Caribbean Virtual Summit conference will focus on regulation as a foundational base for digital transformation and innovation in Caribbean region.
