5G outlook and verticals

17 November

2:00 - 4:00pm

Corum - Montpellier


Starting with a look at the major developments we are expecting from 5G, and the technological disruptions in its wake, this forum will be a chance to debate what role telcos and verticals will play in this new landscape. In particular, it will explore what telcos will bring to the table aside from connectivity, and assess the market potential of verticals in this new environment.

The keys for a successful 5G in Europe

European operators are betting upon new machine type communications markets for 5G whereas USA, Japan and South Korea seem to bet on enhanced mobile broadband services. What should be the priorities for early 5G services? Which evolutions of the value chain?

2:40 - 4:00pm
Verticals & 5G evolution

Could vertical sectors (eHealth, automotive, Energy, factory of the future, media and entertainment, public safety, agriculture…) fuel machine type communication 5G subscriptions?

The purpose of this roundtable is to understand what impact 5G will have on vertical markets, by exploring three key questions:

- What real changes will 5G bring and what are the expected disruptions in the 10 years to come?
- How will 5G change verticals’ business models?
- How will mobile market and vertical market players position themselves in this new landscape?
