5G World Forum (5GWF’18)

by @ 10:10 pm. Filed under 5G, ALL

Attend the 5G World Forum (5GWF’18) to be part of the exciting field of 5G technologies and applications. 5G will provide higher bandwidth and lower latency than current-generation technology; and is expected to enable fundamentally new applications. 5G should help solve the last-mile/last-kilometer problem and provide broadband access to the next billion users on earth at much lower cost because of its use of new spectrum and its improvements in spectral efficiency.

* 5G Vertical Sessions                                                  * 5G Applications
* Automotive, Intelligent Transport                              * 5G Topical Sessions
* 5G for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)           * 5G Security and Privacy
* E-Health and Mobile Health over 5G Networks         * Standards and Deployment
* Disrupting Media and Entertainment in the 5G Era   * Workshops
* Policy and Regulation in the 5G Era                           * IoT in the 5G Era Workshop
