Get ready for the technologies of the future!
Would you like to hear about the ICT technology forces of the next decade? Would you like to participate in the discussions about connectivity of the future, intelligent fully automated networks, industrial digitalisation, and how to create trustworthy systems?
In 2018, Ericsson initiated research operations in Turkey, by opening the 11th global Research Lab, to research and standardize future communication technologies. Now, one year later, we are honoured to invite you to the first ‘Ericsson Research Day’ in Turkey, which brings together academia, operators, SMEs and Ericsson Research executives to disseminate and discuss cutting-edge research topics and recent research findings. This exciting event covers:
- Operator pain-points and research interests
- Technical forefront news from academia and Ericsson
- Technology discussions to feed ecosystem cooperation opportunities
The event will host many prominent speakers and provide you several interesting technology sessions, with participation from Ericsson Researchers, Academia, Operators, SMEs and Governmental bodies. In the morning session, speakers will outline an outlook of current ICT technology trends and future research needs. In the afternoon, you will be able to actively participate one of the below technology tracks:
- 5G Evolution and Beyond
- Zero Touch Automation
- Industrial IoT
- Security and Trustworthiness
Ericsson Research is looking forward to meeting with you in Istanbul, on 5th of November 2019.
