Spotlight on 5G

TelecomTV starts its Spotlight on 5G coverage of the MWC event in Barcelona with a special preview show. Guy Daniels and Ray Le Maistre are joined by industry guests to discuss the key topics and themes that we expect to hear about next week, including:

  • Energy efficiency: how can 5G networks be densified without increasing power usage?
  • Open RAN: Has it missed the 5G rollout phase?
  • Cloud-native 5G: Is the 5G standalone core key to fulfilling business services potential?
  • 5G private networks: Will it spread beyond the early adopters any time soon?

Of course, there’s more to MWC than just the technology. Our panellists also share what they are most looking forward to doing in Barcelona during MWC week, and where to go for a spot of after-show networking…

‌And as mentioned in the show, why not take a look at our Top Ten Mobile Moments series? The very best (and worst?) of 21 years of MWC and 3GSM World Congress.
