Webinar: What 2019 holds for 5G (24th Jan 2019)

After years of hype surrounding the endless possibilities to be gained from 5G, the new standards have finally arrived and 2019 will be the year in which we will see its commercial roll-out. However, what can we expect? From talk of doctor consultations being conducted via video and feature-length movies being downloaded in seconds, it can be difficult to separate the reality from the fiction. In this webinar Mark Newman (Senior trainer and former Chief Research Officer at Ovum) will delve into the actuality of 5G and how we can prepare for its release.

Topics covered:

  • What 5G services will operators launch in 2019?
  • How different will 5G services be from LTE?
  • Which 5G use cases stand the best chances of success?
  • How will 5G impact telecoms operator capex?
  • When will 5G operators be able to benefit from cloud-based networks?
