The promise of 5G is taking the largest technology platform in human history – mobile – and extending it to virtually every industry, every object and every connection. At the same time, 5G New Radio (NR) is urgently needed to meet the ever-increasing global mobile broadband needs. Consumers devour more and more data as our devices increasingly become the source of entertainment, deliver new immersive experiences and are always connected to the cloud. Is 5G all hype and years from being a reality? Quite the contrary.

Join us for this webinar to learn how we are accelerating the schedule for the 3GPP 5G NR Release 15 specification – the global 5G standard – to efficiently deliver fiber-like connections to our mobile devices starting in 2019. See the amazing technology inventions we demonstrated at Mobile World Congress 2017 that will serve as a bedrock for this acceleration. And hear how the Release 15 5G NR specification will not only rise up to meet our insatiable appetite for mobile data, but also provide a future-proof design to meet the full promise and vision of 5G.

Live Digital Audio

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
