The world is getting smarter and needs profound communication technology, more than ever before.

5G is the catalyst that propels adoption of connectivity in new verticals. Connectivity together with Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning have no bounds in ways, of how our lives can change. With rapid adoption of 5G in new verticals from 5G broadcast, automotive to industry automation, not just the device landscape extends beyond mobiles to cars, robotics etc, the standards to conform and the way of testing change greatly with each new vertical.

The next generation networks are to fulfill greater flexibility and offer QoS/QoE on a different granularity to serve numerous applications and verticals. With a large number of deployments already underway, Rohde & Schwarz would like to share the challenges and the expertise in laying out the next generation 5G networks.

In this Technology Symposium, together with industry partners, we explore the building blocks of 5G and the new possibilities. We will share our views and the results of recent trials carried out with the industry partners.

Register now and attractive lucky draw prizes await you.

The event is free of charge; however confirmation of your attendance is required. Kindly register online before 3 December 2019.
