Day 2 - Friday, Nov 10, 2017 - Conference

Preliminary Agenda - subject to change

9.00 - 17.30 Conference


After the 5G hype during the last two years, the 5G community this year has turned to realism and has moved into the working mode in order to fine-tune the various expectations and to map this onto the emerging enabling technologies and to identify the deltas to be addressed by the international standardization and emerging 5G testbeds around the globe. This conference will unite the previous day´s track workshops under a common theme in order to allow fruitful discussions beyond the rim of the different but related technology domains within this environment of high agility and innovations. As usual we want get a realistic snapshot of the global state of play towards 5G.
