5G & The Future Mobile Network

On Monday 23rd November, we are pleased to welcome Tim Curry, Principal Network Architect at BT, to talk about “5G & The Future Mobile Network”. This event is jointly organised by BCS Mid-Wales and BCS South-Wales branches.

5G has been in the news a lot recently, but what is it all about? Do we need another “G” (Generation) of mobile technology? Is it safe? Is it true that 5G will enable Augmented Reality, Remote Surgery, Factory Automation and Self-Driving Cars? What is the engineering and commercial reality behind current UK deployments of 5G and what can we expect in the future?

The event is online. Sign up for your free place at the event using Eventbrite.
