Getting Business and Network Infrastructures Ready for 5G
- First experiences and the way forward
Last year's edition of the FOKUS FUSECO Forum was attended by more than 220 delegates from over 30 nations and brought together international network operators, manufacturers and researchers to discuss the ICT infrastructures needed for the upcoming 5G network systems as well as the Industrial Internet. This year we will look at the benefits and risks of this emerging disruptively agile network and service environment driven by the integration of existing and new access network technologies, new software paradigms, like edge computing, network virtualization, network slicing, and programmable 5G Core networks. Together with leading operators, manufacturers, integrators as well as various solution providers we want to assess ongoing technologies and business proofs of concept and related 5G testbeds around the globe.
This year's event will feature again three dedicated tracks featuring tutorials and interactive workshops on the first day, namely
1. Multi-access Network Technologies in 5G-ready networks
2. Edge Computing and flexible 5G Core Networking for emerging 5G Applications
3. Network Virtualization and Network Slicing for 5G-ready networks
The second day features a full day conference uniting these topics under one umbrella „5G-Ready Applications and Technological Enablers“.
As usual we will show the newest prototypes developed within the 5G Berlin Testbed and also show first applications in the Berlin 5G Testfield Initiative driven by the Senate of Berlin.
