5G Futures Summit Sessions

Session 1: The Power of Open Gateways to Federate Cloud Networks

Time: 09:10-10:20 (70 mins)
Moderator: Henry Calvert

Looking to capture the full potential of the 5G vision? Join us for a discussion on the role of a Federated Global Operator Platform in creating a cloud network of open API gateways. The session will also explore how monetisation of 5G networks can be achieved at scale using cloud technologies, and the opportunity for related investment in 5G, including 5G Standalone and Fixed Wireless Access (FWA), with benefits from Virtualisation.

Session 2: To Infinity and Beyond with 5G-Advanced

Time: 10:50 – 12:20 (90 mins)
Moderator: Sylwia Kechiche

Within two years of standardisation, 5G has been launched in 50% of countries worldwide, covering 26.2% of the global population. This is the fastest deployed technology to date: 5G is on course to serve two billion connections by 2025. So what can we expect next for the 5G Era?

Join us and industry experts as we look into the future of new 5G wireless innovations that are strengthening the 5G foundation. Including 5G-Advanced, as a key enabler of the AR/ VR services including the Metaverse and massive IoT with its enhanced uplink connectivity and how it will take us beyond our current technologies, bridging 5G, 6G and more.

Session 3: Strengthening 5G Security in 2023

Time: 13:20-14:20 (60 mins)
Moderator: Alex Leadbeater

This session will provide an overview of significant security threats which have impacted the mobile telecommunications landscape in the last year. GSMA and industry experts will give insight to how the mobile ecosystem can build stronger security resilience by discussing key security topics within infiltration, access exploitation and availability compromise. The GSMA’s 5th annual Security Threat Landscape Report highlights the security threat and industry response through industry examples.

Session 4: Driving Supply Chain Resiliency & Interoperable Networks

Time: 14:50-15:50 (60 mins)
Moderator: Kelsey Kusterer Ziser

Supply chain resilience is defined by its capacity for resistance and recovery. During this session, we will discuss this notion, the key drivers behind supply chain digital transformations, and the value of an interoperable cloud infrastructure, including OpenRAN, spectrum harmonisation, and non-terrestrial networks. We will also provide insights on supply chain enablement and the importance of ubiquity, interoperability & capability with key speakers from GSMAi.
