This is a Round Table, presentation and discussion, hosted by Member Peter Curnow Ford
Round Table short presentation and discussion- 5G What is it and Why?
The focus will be on the Global nature of 5G ; the timeline to arrival including recently announced trials and what will be the key focus technology wise.
Peter will then cover the 10 key use cases or verticals - prioritisation [eg Industry 4.0, Transport & Logistics, Public Safety, eHealth, etc] and then a round up of where UK Government is playing its part, funding and competitions, the ongoing 5G Testbed's and Trials and how industry in the broadest sense [including public sector] can engage with the trials, with the funding and Testbeds and the best organisations to approach for assistance and engagement.
Presentation, Q&A, and discussion afterwards.
It will not be heavily technology focused, instead will concentrate on business, verticals, how the mobile operators and governments are managing this and as mentioned, where to go to and become involved.
Member, Peter Curnow Ford is Managing partner at Viatec Associates and a 5G Expert, experienced Chairman and NXD.
