Further Information


As we begin the process across the world of defining what constitutes 5G, this event developed the international discourse on what 5G should be – from technologies and networks to applications, markets and business models. Participants built on collective experiences to focus on the approaches on standardisation of 5G, with the aim of its availability from 2020.


Brought to you by WWRF and techUK, this event provided an excellent starting point for industry and academia to work together to create the vision for 5G and a high-performance environment.
