5G LATIN AMERICA: 5G is a technology that is arriving to solve problems that go beyond human capability.
A network with the technical capacity proposed by 5G will open the way for several innovations, promising to innovate all urban life. For operators, 5G still brings up some inquiries, investment is high and return is doubtful, executives want to know why and when they should invest. From a technological point of view, there are still several challenges; it is already known what 5G should be, but not yet how. That said, the event will address 4G results and the road to 5G, including topics as LTE-A, 4.5plus, Wi-Fi, VoLTE, Small Cells and discussions on how to significantly cut MNO CAPEX and OPEX by changing some processes. 5G is currently being hyped globally, but are LatAm operators ready or are they still focused on 4G and see 5G as too far away to be concerned about?
