5th September - Is my digital society your digital society Keynote

Matthew Smith

With major network deployments from 2020 onwards, 5G will be the backbone of the future digital economy, to realize the vision of a fully connected society. Mobility and mobile broadband is one of the most important drivers of innovation and economic growth. Two factors crucial for cost-effective network evolution with 5G and IoT are a smooth spectrum migration and a combination of both bands and technologies in 4G and 5G. This session will explore network migration and the opportunities for economic and societal improvement across different new markets/use-cases.

Ericsson's public-private partnership initiative – Connect to Learn – has been working to address this challenge through improving access to quality education with ICT. More than 21,000 students and 155 teachers across 31 schools, as well as the surrounding communities, have benefited from this initiative. Learn more about how this innovative program has brought education in many schools in Myanmar into the 21st Century and the next exciting phase.

Workshops and Webinars

5th September - Mobile World Live Webinar - Will OTTs beat Telcos to the next digital revolution too?

This Webinar will explore digital transformation as it relates to the Telco industry and how operators will respond to the market opportunity of IoT. Having seen OTT players get closer to content and extract more value from the last phase of internet growth, how can Telcos be the dominant force for the new revolution and leverage their strongest asset (the network) to serve both consumers and a fast-widening range of industry/enterprise verticals? Can they move fast enough, can the network become flexible enough – and what is needed from an infrastructure and software perspective to enable that?

Moderator: David Pringle, GSMA
