5G – a game changer

Sara Mazur, Head of Research at Ericsson will speak at our Initiative seminar on Digitalisation. She will share her insights of how 5G technologies will deliver very capable and secure solutions for an ever-changing world.

“The entire world is transforming at a tremendous pace. The upcoming 5G networks will play an instrumental role in this transformation where everyone and everything will be connected; where workplaces will change, businesses will be reshaped, new services and values will be created.”

“In a world where everything is digitalizing and traditional products are turned into services, 5G networks will not just be an advanced wireless communication technology, but a platform that will include cloud solutions and distributed computing for the benefit of rapid and cost-efficient solution creation and distribution – those are likely to be essential characteristics and enablers, and will permeate all sectors – personal, societal and industrial.”
