Summary

On May 31 & June 1 2017, the Wireless World Research Forum will host  the 4th Annual 5G Huddle in Ottawa, Canada as part of the celebrations of Canada’s 150th birthday, a move which is supported by the Canadian Wireless Telecommunications Association (CWTA), Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED), the Information Technology Association of Canada (ITAC) and the Radio Advisory Board of Canada (RABC). 

 

5G will bring about fundamental changes in the way society and businesses function and how citizens live. It will drive innovation in vertical markets everywhere. But even the most innovative carriers are not expected to use 5G commercially before 2020, and large-scale 5G rollout will most probably take even longer.

 

With this in mind, the 2017 5G Huddle will focus concretely on the transition from 4G to 5G, i.e. on what needs to be done to lay the groundwork for widespread 5G adoption and ensure that we are prepared to capitalize on the opportunities and benefits ahead.
