5G Messaging Poised to Deliver Ecosystem Innovation
Date / Time: Thursday, December 17, 2020, 9:00 a.m. London
sponsored by

As more telcos deploy 5G networks, they will need a strategy for not only supporting their legacy messaging services on 3G and 4G networks, but also for creating revenue from messaging over 5G. Messaging remains an important service for telcos, for P2P, business-to-consumer and machine-to-machine (IoT). 5G Messaging offers telcos the opportunity to upgrade text-based SMS to rich messaging, and to tap into new service scenarios for IoT, while providing backwards compatibility with 3G and 4G networks, which will take telcos some years to completely phase out. Firmly rooted in telco standards and therefore already supported in 5G platforms, 5G Messaging provides revenue opportunities for telcos in the consumer, enterprise and IoT markets. This webinar will provide an introduction to 5G Messaging, examine business models, and provide a detailed case study of 5G Messaging in action at China Mobile.

Agenda and key topics include:

  • Introduction to 5G Messaging
  • The business case for 5G Messaging
  • The 5G Messaging platform
  • 5G Messaging case study: China Mobile
