9:00am – 9:50am: Keynote Session: Realizing the 5G Promise After a very successful technology cycle of 4G, industry is setting its sight on 5G that is likely to usher in a new set of capabilities that will create new ecosystems, billion-dollar startups, high-paying jobs, and bring about substantial change in the global economy. To truly realize the potential of 5G, new techniques and methodologies are needed to deal with the continued growth of data traffic that is unlikely to slow down for the foreseeable future. One must take a systems approach to manage the diverse requirements and driving down the costs and monetize the new opportunities. This session will take a critical look at 5G, what it means to the wireless industry and what mobile operators can do to redefine themselves to participate in the 5G economy.
