Day 2 - 12 May 2022



Applied 5G: Chairpersons Welcome

Chairpersons welcome and opening remarks. 



5G Capabilities – a Market Analysis

  • What we have learnt so far in relation to network speeds and security when deployed.  
  • Is 5G performing as well as originally anticipated with the network capabilities of wider bandwidth, flexibility and lower latency? 
  • Examples across verticals of 5G running live. 



Connecting 5G at the Edge

  • Where we are with adopting Edge platforms in the 5G space.   
  • Enabling multi-access edge computing (MEC) as the key for optimum response.   
  • Localised hosting – the benefits and drawbacks for network solutions.   
  • Examples of 5G Edge platforms in action.



AI Opportunities in 5G

  • Combining AI at the Edge as the ultimate game-changer.   
  • Using trials and testing to see where AI can really impact opportunities and experiences.   
  • AI and ML as part of critical infrastructure for operations and maintenance optimisation.  



Private Network Trial Use-case

To follow soon …


Networking Break



Panel: Monetizing 5G Services

  • With 5G commercial trials rolling out, are more 5G focused business models needed to take advantage of this market? 
  • Digital deployment – is a hybrid approach of public and private networks best?   
  • A shift from the quality of service to quality of experience and personalisation.  
  • What needs to happen next for 5G to reach its financial capabilities?



Open RAN for Flexible 5G

  • Collaborative working for greater flexibility.  
  • Costs of 5G, can Open RAN help to aid the financial burden? 
  • The new capabilities to create new features and services at speed.  



Creating Immersive Experiences with 5G

  • Creating audience immersion through AV, VR, ML and robotics.   
  • The extensive capability of user personalisation now available.   
  • Using Edge, AI and digital technologies to enable higher bandwidth and stronger coverage.     
  • Trials and testing for the future of 5G optimised entertainment.



Reaching the Next Phase, Standalone 5G

  • A look at the progression from core, non-standalone (NSA) and standalone (SA) 5G.  
  • Unlocking mass coverage with capabilities through SA 5G, from heightened speeds to network slicing.  
  • Where do we go from here with this next-gen connectivity?



The Future of 5G & Beyond

  • The current status of 5G across the Americas. 
  • A look at how to grow 5G. 
  • Emerging 5G use-cases. 
  • The roadmap for 5G and beyond (as 6G comes into play).
