Session Description

Winter Olympics 2022 will be like no other. It will bring revolutionary experiences to audiences and players. Going beyond the Olympics, 5G mmWave technology is increasingly favoured by sports for its ultra-high speed and super-low latency to accommodate very high user densities and data volumes, which are perfect for crowded gatherings common in sporting events. Since global harmonized allocation for mobile at ITU’s 2019 World Radiocommunication Conference, mmWave spectrum is being assigned in many countries with deployment planned especially for city centres, hot spots and sporting venues.


This session will discuss various aspects of mmWave applications in sports, such as the technical challenges and breakthrough solutions, and scalable industrial solutions to address needs of verticals. The discussions will be followed by a fireside chat to explore best practices to cultivate a mmWave ecosystem.
