Accelerating into 2023 & Beyond: 5G mmWave Summit


Wed, 1 Mar: 15:00 - 17:30 CET



Theatre 5, Hall 7



Session Description


The global expansion of 5G is delivering real benefits to people, businesses and society. A key element of the 5G technology mix, 5G mmWave helps deliver on the full promise of 5G with ultra-reliable and superfast high-bandwidth connectivity in high traffic, high density scenarios.

Join us for the third in this successful series looking at the global expansion of 5G mmWave. The last year has seen considerable global progress in the wake of recent 5G mmWave deployments offering huge benefits to businesses and consumers by delivering significant improvements to bandwidth, speed and responsiveness, particularly in densely populated and high-capacity areas, such as public transport hubs like airports and train stations, entertainment venues and sport stadiums.
This Summit brings together leaders from the operator and vendor community behind this global expansion and you will hear directly from the businesses who are implementing 5G mmWave. It combines use cases from customers, operators and vendors covering recent major deployments, the technical challenges of delivering them, the immersive experiences they deliver as well as the more practical aspects around the challenges of planning and deployment. You will have the opportunity to hear about and discuss some of the deployments happening now and in the near future, and the benefits they will bring to global business and society.
The 5G mmWave Summit will be open to all pass types at MWC Barcelona 2023.
5G mmWave circa 2023: State of the market and look back at our accomplishments
As 5G surpasses one billion connections (with its eyes on the next billion) it’s important to take stock of how far we’ve come in scaling the mmWave ecosystem and mmWave services. Beyond service and technology innovations, though, we need to take stock of what we want mmWave to achieve and what’s needed to drive its success.
