Power up your growth - 5G open for business

5G is just around the corner. On June 14, 5G standards were approved by 3GPP. It is now the time for the industry and eco-system to accelerate the development, deployment and commercialization of 5G. What an exciting moment in history!!

At this historical moment, the Mobile Industry will cast the spotlight on Asia where many markets are on the forefront of 5G development. At MWC Shanghai, Ericsson's experts will demonstrate real-life deployment and use cases in the areas that are critical to capture the business potential of 5G.

We would like to invite you to join us and look forward to having in-depth discussions with you on how to reap the benefits promised by 5G. So, come visit us in Hall N3, Booth D66 for insightful discussions and hands-on demonstrations.
