Setting real expectations for 5G in 2019 and 2020 - Tuesday, December 11, 2018 at 1:00 pm CST

2017 was the year the first 5G standard was finalized (New Radio). 2018 saw the start of the first commercial network builds and deployments. 2019 will be when it all comes together and a real revolution starts! Well, that is the plan, anyway…

The first 5G devices will become available in 2019, together with (hopefully) new spectrum allocations and auctions. Operators will launch 5G services in multiple cities and consumers will be bombarded by marketing messages and advertising.

This webinar will look at 5G in 2019 and 2020, look at the expectations being set by the industry and assess what is real and what is not. This will include:

  • Performance expectations and ability to deliver
  • Device availability and selection
  • Deployment of new 5G network architectures and technology such as MEC and massive MIMO
  • Prospects for additional spectrum
