Title of the talk: “5G: The Why. The What and the How”

Billions of devices and sensors will be coming online in the next several years, placing unprecedented demands on wireless networks. 5G networks and technologies must be built with capacity, latency, and scalability in mind. This is not just to support the growth in devices but also to address the need for faster, more reliable connectivity, rapid access to computing power and storage at the edge, and also the agility to provision new, diverse services for the consumer and enterprise. On the journey to a software defined, fully automated and intelligent network, Intel is partnering with industry leaders to supply cutting edge technology while building an ecosystem of providers that offer choice, optimized solutions and a quicker path to market.
