IEEE 5G Summit 25 March, 2019
Open networks for the 4th industrial revolution
5G, AI and other emerging technologies are expected to usher in the 4th industrial revolution bringing a new level of productivity in the society. While mobile communications and 5G are a vital part of this we need radical innovation also in many other domains of the end-to-end service and value chain. This includes network automation, service orchestration, data analytics, and IoT, to name a few. Also, we will need to enable cross-industry cooperation to fully benefit from the various technological advances. The talk will cover the work in key forums to enable an open ecosystem for fast innovation across industries.
