Preparing Industry Verticals for Edge Computing, Network Slicing & 5G

5G technologies and infrastructures have rapidly evolved in the past years and several application use cases have been identified and explored in early trials. Now, as first 5G standards have been released, the first commercial products become available and initial 5G deployments are happening in the US and Asia. It is about time to focus on the impact of 5G within the progressing digitalization of various industries in Europe. In particular, the concept of network slicing has been addressed in-depth during the last months by industry alliances for various industries, such as manufacturing, automotive, energy, and media, demonstrating the potentialities of network virtualization.

During these two days and together with leading operators, manufacturers, integrators, and solution providers we want to understand and assess 5G-related technologies, infrastructures, and their use in various business sectors enabling innovative business models, value chains, productivity gains, and new revenue opportunities. In addition, we want to look at the challenges of 5G rollout, legacy interworking, and migration.
