The promise of 5G services is huge. Massively scalable, low-latency enabled applications will open up new ecosystems, business models, and creativity across the enterprise and residential markets in every industry. While industry conversations may revolve around new 5G services, the network plays a fundamental role in delivering them. Attendees of the session will receive a Heavy Reading white paper on the topic written by analyst Sterling Perrin. You will also have access to a recent Cisco-published white paper outlining our strategy for the transport network that will underpin the worldwide adoption of 5G technologies and delivery of applications. Join this session to learn about the technical aspects of the 5G transport network to lay the foundation for deeper dives on the evolution of transport architecture. Recommended for both technical and sales audiences.
