C-Tech Forum: 5G // Saturday 16 September
What is 5G?
Pervasive ubiquitous superfast mobile networks. 10 Gigabit data download and streaming rates. Ultra HD content everywhere. VR and AR holographic bi-directional download and upload. Smart devices and smart TVs in smart homes and offices in constant connection with smart cities.
5G promises much.
The technology juggernaut is unstoppable. Yet there is much to decide:
Standards, alliances, competing technologies, asymmetric technology developments, infrastructure roll outs, integration with legacy systems, control, security, spectrum allocation, spectrum auctions, regulation.
5G presents existential business implications for the telco and tech companies rolling it out and for the broadcast market which will use 5G as far more than a transport layer.
The IBC C-Tech Forum: 5G programme will navigate these and other topics, with thought-provoking industry thinkers and leaders in close communication with a specially invited C-level only audience from across the telco, mobile and BME sectors. The programme will focus on questions that go beyond what 5G can do and will provide visions into how, when and what needs to be done to make 5G a success and drive progress in the broadcasting industry.
5G is a race down an unlit road. Alliances are announced weekly. Competing technologies are being developed and pushed out of the labs at an accelerating rate. Test projects will continue to scale.
The Broadcast Media and Entertainment (BME) sector scarcely has time to catch its breath yet there remain many questions as 5G success requires partnering across the telco stack, with tech leaders and with standards bodies. Like those that preceded it the 5G enabled Fourth Industrial Revolution will be built on disruptions and opportunities.
This exclusive invitation only event will take place on Saturday 16 September, tailored to the needs of C-level professionals in Broadcasting, Media and Telecoms. Join the discussion at the IBC C-Tech Forum: 5G.
