5G Americas will engage with five leading global organizations committed to bringing 5G technology successfully to their country or region while offering collaboration and cooperation in a public symposium hosted for the first time in the Americas.
5G Americas announced today that registration is open for 5G New Horizons Wireless Symposium, the 5th Global 5G Event focusing on worldwide progress of the 5th Generation of wireless technologies. The event is co-located with both 5G North America and BCE at the Austin Convention Center in Austin, Texas from May 16-17, 2018 and will have limited capacity.
The symposium will host about 50 expert panelists and speakers including business leaders, inventors, engineers, professors, technical experts and policymakers from around the world representing the leading 5G organizations. The sessions are mindfully curated to stimulate the continued progress on 5G technology worldwide and focus on government policies, promotions, services, trial projects and other industrial convergence opportunities.
The Global 5G Event series was developed in the interest of efficiency and building global consensus on 5G, and was announced in October 2015 by the following parties of a Memorandum of Understanding: 5G Americas, (Americas), the Fifth Generation Mobile Communications Promotion Forum (5GMF) (Japan), 5G Forum (Republic of Korea), IMT-2020 (5G) Promotion Group (China) and the 5G Infrastructure Association (5G IA) (Europe). In May 2017, Brazil (Telebrasil/Projecto ‘5G Brasil’) joined the partners on the Global 5G Event to support multi-lateral collaboration on 5G systems across continents and countries.
Registration offers an early-bird discount or package pricing with the co-located events. Media and operators will have free access with pre-registration. Confirmed speakers and panelists will be announced in February.
Chris Pearson, President, 5G Americas said, “We are at the point in time where 5G is truly visible on the horizon, and yet there remains further discussion and planning for the successful rollout of many new technology, regulatory, business and spectrum concepts. 5G Americas is pleased to offer this global event with strong representation by the leading international organizations that are fostering this development for a truly connected society.”
DongKu Kim, Chair of Executive Committee, 5G Forum stated, “The 5th Global 5G Event at Austin will be a great opportunity to share the on-going development of 5G activities and trials in key regions and drive ever ascending attention from ICT and a wide range of other industries’ eco-system as well.”
Dr. Colin Willcock, Chair of the 5G Infrastructure Association (5G IA) said, “A unique opportunity to understand 5G developments with a global dimension. The event that brings the key regions of the world together to present and discuss 5G status, activities and future plans”
Susumu Yoshida, Chair of the 5th Generation Mobile Communications Promotion Forum (5GMF) commented, “The 5th Global 5G Event in Austin will be expected to further accelerate crossover collaboration on the relationship with vertical industries and harmonization on the regulation towards the 5G realization in 2020.”
Jose Marcos C. Brito, General Secretary of 5G Brasil stated, “The 5th Global 5G Event in Austin is timed ideally due to the recent conclusion of the phase one standards for 5G technology by 3GPP. This makes the important discussions and collaboration on global progress, trials and regulatory policy even more relevant and realistic. 5G is truly on the horizon and this symposium provides the opportunity to see it more clearly.”
Ms. Zhiqin Wang, Chair of IMT-2020 PG said, “As we approach 5G commercialization, it is essential for governments and industries to jointly discuss 5G development policy, technology, industry roadmap and industrial applications cultivation, for which the 5th Global 5G Event provides an ideal platform.”
