From Smart Cities to Industry 4.0, join Total Telecom and a wealth of industry leaders tomorrow to explore 5G’s impact across numerous industries

5G is so much more than just faster connectivity. 

From unlocking a myriad of industrial use cases to changing the way businesses approach connectivity, 5G has the potential to revolutionise the global economy across verticals including smart cities, transport, manufacturing, and healthcare. 

But capitalising on the 5G opportunity will not be easy. The technology itself is very much still in its infancy, with novel use cases being developed around the world. Important questions are being asked, such as how can we best monetise 5G’s capabilities for enterprises, and how can we build productive partnerships in novel vertical industries we have no previous experience in?

At this year’s 5GLIVE conference, panels of experts will seek to answer some of these vital questions, exploring how 5G can enable new, more agile business models; a wider and more personalised array of products and services; and the impact 5G can ultimately have on the global economy.

5GLIVE is free to attend, so register here!
