5G represent a major departure from previous cellular generations. It will not only focus on speed, lower latency and spectrum efficiency but will also empower a number of verticals empowered by IoT, AI/ML/DL and Blockchain collecting and aggregating data for edge computing and with 6G at edge intelligence – Edge AI performing analysis and generating insightful information for critical actions in real-time or non-real-time applications.

The talk will cover:

– A clear understanding of 5G & 6G positioning, features and roadmap

– Architecture evolution pushing intelligence to the edge

– Provide examples empowered by 5G/6G, IoT and AI including:

  • Enhanced Mobile Services (e.g. High-speed application, video streaming, gaming);
  • Massive Machine-type Communications (e.g. Smart homes. Smart building, Smart Cities);
  • Ultra-reliable and low latency communications (e.g. Self-driving car, AR/VR, Mission-critical applications)

– Provide an example of network slicing for bandwidth efficiency, security and QoS.


– Understanding why 5G and future generations such as 6G and beyond.

– Example of new classes of applications and services empowered by 5G/6G

– Concept of virtualization and networking slicing for the dynamic launch of new services.
