The first steps down the road to 5G took a few years, slowed down by the need to set standards and develop architectural designs. But now, finally, the pace is quickening. Major wireless carriers have begun to roll out commercial 5G networks across the globe. And their focus is expanding from technology challenges to business use cases. They’ve acknowledged that simply providing faster speeds and lower latency for smartphones is only the beginning. What will be the first “killer” app for 5G? And in terms of technology, to what extent will 5G really have the ability to replace wired broadband? And how is 5G giving carriers an opportunity to rethink the RAN? This event is a part of a two-part FierceWireless Breakfast Series. To learn more about this event, the October 23rd event, and to register, click here.
