webinar description

The buzz around 5G continues, with some analysts projecting it will upend entire industries. Industry analyst firm, ABI Research, is forecasting that mobile broadband operators will generate $247 billion in 5G revenues in 2025. At the same time, there are many mixed messages surrounding 5G, and — as with any standard still under development — much that remains unknown.
If you are considering the step towards 5G technology you probably have questions such as: Is it risky to invest in 4G LTE technology now? Should I wait for newer 5G technology to avoid depreciating LTE investments? What capabilities will 5G technology bring to my business?

Reasons to attend the webinar:
  • Where 5G fits in the rapidly evolving IoT landscape

  • The evolution path from 4G LTE to 5G LTE, Release 14/15

  • Applications and markets best suited for 5G LTE and 5G New Radio

  • The timeline for 5G and what to consider as you migrate to next gen technology
