Road to 5G built on Fibre

Thursday, June 14, 2018, 3:00 PM IST / 9:30 AM London


5G promises to change the way we live our lives, with unprecedented services and unparalleled user experiences. With the heavy expectations of delivering up to 1,000 times increased bandwidth, 100 times more connected devices and latency of less than 1ms, mobile operators will have to adopt "small cell networks" which strategically bring the network closer to the users.

Ankit Agarwal, Director (Telecom Products Business), Sterlite Tech, will elaborate on:
•    How the technology trends of today are paving the way for the organic roll out of 5G
•    Decoding 5G - What 5G means for end users
•    Why fiber infrastructure upgrades are critical for 5G rollout
•    Why CSPs should partner with network integrators for successful rollouts
