5G - Promises Unbroken?

Michael Finneran  (President, dBrn Associates)

Date: Tuesday, August 4

Time: 3:30pm - 4:15pm

Session Category: Standard Conference Sessions

Vault Recording: TBD

The 5G juggernaut is launched and the cellular industry has shifted from ‘promise’ to ‘delivery’ mode- though some of those promises seem to have fallen to the wayside. This session will take a look back at what the carriers promised us in terms of 5G services and how far they’ve actually come in terms of deliverables. We will also talk about some of the surprises we’ve encountered as deployments progressed, and will take a brief look at some of the macro issues in the wireless space that could potentially turn 5G and the existing cellular industry on its ear. You’ll come away with a clear picture of what 5G is delivering today, its near-term prospects, and what it means for your enterprise.
