5G - More than yet another generation of mobile?

Now that 5G concepts are starting to firm up, network operators are in a position to start making plans, consider the costs and assess the market potential.  So what exactly is 5G?  A go-faster 4G or something more?  What is the architecture? What technologies are involved, how much will it cost and what are the benefits to customers and operators?

What  is Network Slicing and why is this technology a key factor for the 5G business case? What new use cases can 5G network slicing enable? Who can and should contribute to the 5G network slicing ecosytem? When will 5G network slicing be available commercially? What is the UK approach to developing the 5G slicing business model through open collaboration and how can you get involved?

This seminar will seek to address these questions and more, to help to put 5G in its true context.
