The Players Suite, Double Tree by Hilton Hotel, Stadium MK, May 9, 1.00 pm - 5.00 pm
A thought-leadership event to discuss the requirements, infrastructure and applications of 5G network developments in the UK, within the context of the plans for full fibre and the current fibre rollout. This important seminar is designed to bring you up to speed on what's happening in the rapidly developing 5G space, and the relationship between 5G and full fibre. Make sure that your team is fully aware of the implications of a 5G future.
In the coming 5G world, networks will connect things, as well as people. It will be a world where all things are sensing, all things are connected, and all things are intelligent. We are going to see the emergence of many things that we cannot imagine today.
On the roads, self-driving cars will communicate through the 5G network — and traffic jams, accidents, and parking problems will become a thing of the past. Groceries and other purchases will be carried to us through the air by drone, arriving in our hands within minutes. The blind will perceive the world using assistive technologies. In short, 5G will be the portal to the digital world for everything and every person.
