Connectivity is no longer an interesting topic. Or is it? As the 5G era dawns, the potential use cases and impact of wireless/mobile connectivity have been attracting attention. Importantly, discussions focus not only on the value but also on the “profile” of connectivity. Indeed, new (mainly IT) concepts – including cloudification and open network architectures – are drastically changing the wireless/mobile industry.
Join Dr. Konstantinos Stavropoulos, solution marketing lead at EXFO, and Gabriel Brown, principal analyst at Heavy Reading, for an insightful discussion on 5G connectivity. In this webinar, you will learn about:
The value of connectivity now and in the future, focusing on 5G
The main aspects of connectivity, from intelligence to (resource) infinity to cloud
The key network – domain and architecture-related – challenges for connectivity
The key business challenges for connectivity
Ways to make the most of connectivity in consumer/enterprise use cases
