5G Infrastructure & Application: Opening Presentation
Chair’s Opening Remarks Day 1
Dr Ulrich Dropmann
Head of Standardization Bell Labs CTO
10:25AM - Day 1
Presentation: Standardisation – 5G for Enterprise
- What current regulation and certification is in place across the connectivity space?
- As there are varying views of standardised, how do we reach a unanimous account of what is correct? Does this need to be an industry-by-industry definition?
- Creating pragmatic expectations and how to ensure you are following protocol in such a rapidly evolving landscape.
. Dr Ulrich Dropmann, Head of Standardization Bell Labs CTO, Nokia
Presentation: 5G Capabilities – Why You Need It and What You Can Gain
- High-band spectrum and automation – Allowing for peak connectivity speeds.
- Small cells – Increased Geographical connectivity due to more connectivity assets including antennas and cell sites.
- Networking – How this enables devices from asset tracking and street furniture, to remote healthcare.
- Confidentiality – Data encryption at the edge of the network thanks to local cache V’s the core.
Presentation: Defining 5G – the Software Defined Mobile Network
- A breakdown of the key architectural pillars supporting 5G.
- What are the key concepts, barriers and benefits to a Software Defined Mobile Network?
- Overcoming these barriers to leverage enterprise opportunities.
- Adopting SD-WAN; is this the next step to increased agility, process optimisation, cost reductions and cloud utilisation?
Presentation: A Slice for Everyone! How Network Slicing Enables Business Optimisation
- What solutions can this network virtualization provide? Network-as-a-service capabilities and beyond.
- Is a Standalone infrastructure the only way to leverage this potential?
- Network Slicing – the key element to business optimisation and competitive advantage?
- How will MNO’s approach and adapt to this level of customisation?
Panel: Unlocking the Potential of 5G
- Talk of the full network roll-out has taken-over, but how is the lack of understanding in how to integrate this network into existing infrastructures hindering its imminent use?
- How 5G will affect the holy quintet; capacity, reliability, latency, bandwidth and efficiency?
- The need for MNO’s to create new products and pricing for sector adoption.

Rowan Dias Högman
Research Leader & Head of 5G Industry Collaborations
03:05PM - Day 1
Presentation: Trust the Machine – 5G Networks Role in Industrial Environments
- Does 5G hold the greatest potential for supporting industrial wireless architecture?
- Which one do we need? Local Vs Private Networks for industrial environments.
- MPN’s (mobile private networks) built-for-purpose advantage for industry 4.0 and beyond.
- Efficiency and remote management – how 5G differs from other disruptive technologies in this space.
. Rowan Dias Högman, Research Leader & Head of 5G Industry Collaborations, Ericsson
Presentation: Monitoring and Monetizing 5G for the Enterprise
- How the layered connectivity of 5G enables real-time monitoring of assets, data and AI insights for actionable outcomes and in turn, peak efficiency.
- What this means for predictive maintenance and pro-active rather than reactive solutions.
- The new revenue streams open to suppliers and operators including, Enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB), Ultra-reliable and low-latency communications (URLLC) and Massive machine-type communications (mMTC).
- How do we start of essential process of creating 5G focused business models?
Presentation: 5G for Creative Industries
- How 5G is radically disrupting creative industries.
- A closer look at effects on the production, distribution and consumption models, as well as content that is made.
- What are the predicted trends and activities to change the way creative industries including, TV, film, music, advertising, theatre, the arts and digital creative areas will develop?
Panel: The New World of Connectivity; 5G and the Future
- How fast will it evolve and is the key to future 5G success gaining the confidence of the public?
- Shutting down old networks, how will this impact industries?
- How do we adopt the key technologies needed now? E.g. MIMO (Multiple-input multiple-output)
- 5G in five years’ time, where will we be?
- Moving beyond sectors; how this enables a sustainable future?
