[Webinar] 4G to 5G Transition Planning - Evolution and co-existence with legacy systems

The adoption of 5G is expected to be very gradual including years of co-existence with previous generation technologies. Thus, internetworking is a must have consideration for any operators who plan to introduce 5G networks or enterprises who look to leverage 5G services. Moreover, during the build out of 5G, interworking with existing systems is crucial to allow operators to offer seamless service delivery both within their own networks as well as for roaming.

In this FierceMarkets webinar sponsored by Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Intel, Anders Askerup, Solution Architect from HPE, Sue Rudd of Strategy Analytics, and Terence Nally of Intel, will explore the options for 5G and 4G interworking.

Topics to be highlighted in this webinar include:

  • 4G to 5G interworking and data management
  • 5G - 4G session handover, single or dual registration
  • Authentication flows
  • Service interworking flows
  • IMS Voice over LTE/NR and SMS
  • Live Q&A
