About the Content

While the media hypes up 5G wireless as a cool consumer technology it will have a significant impact on enterprise IT. With the ability to support significantly higher speeds, lower latency and higher capacity, 5G is the first generation of mobile/wireless communications built to handle advanced enterprise applications. The three drivers of enterprise 5G are:

  • The need for speed 
  • Explosive data growth 
  • IT architectures going virtual at the edge

We will focus on helping enterprise leaders prepare for the opportunities and challenges of 5G.

Discussion Topics

  • Understanding how security will change including extending data privacy and security controls’ boundaries to handle the greater data and application workload exchange at the edge
  • Use case examples from several industries including healthcare, tech manufacturing, energy & utilities, media & entertainment, automotive and financial services
  • Assessing your business and infrastructure (vendors, networks & staff) to get ready for 5G
