5G – A Business Perspective (in partnership with The CIU)

Thursday 20th July (1pm Mexico City)


This talk focusses on the commercial aspects of 5G and the capabilities it brings to telcos, new and emerging players in the communications industry, as well as adjacent industries. It illustrates how the technology (New Radio, NG-RAN, and SBA – Service Based Architecture), enable and support the required flexibility, cost structures, diverse deployment scenarios, and new use cases – to support existing and new / emerging business models.

We explore, and make sense of, the next phase of connectivity and connected innovation, and the role 5G has in enabling the transition to a massively expanded set of business models and opportunities. Participants will gain an appreciation of how their own organisation can maximise the opportunities that 5G presents.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Market Update

  • Projected 5G Revenue Generation – including by Industry Vertical
