Live Q&A Discussion Show featuring special guests

The After Show was broadcast live at the end of the 2023 Spotlight on 5G series. TelecomTV’s Guy Daniels and Ray Le Maistre were joined by industry guest panellists for this question and answer session, when they reviewed the major themes and takeaways from the MWC Barcelona event. What were the hits? What were the misses? And were there any surprises this year? Among the questions asked were:

  • Can 5G deliver on its promises? Can it deliver new revenues and a return on investment for the coming years?
  • How important is the Open Gateway initiative? What makes it different from previous API-based announcements?
  • How can we build a broader, energy-efficient, telecoms infrastructure to support 5G cloud services and apps?
  • Have advances been made in Open RAN and its carrier-grade capabilities? Will the Tier 2 and 3 operators now come onboard?
  • Is the 5G standalone core the key to fulfilling the potential of business services? And how do we accelerate its deployment?
