Session Description

According to the GSMAi China Mobile Economy Report, China will account for 70% of global 5G connections in 2020, and 5G adoption will grow to just under 50% by 2025, placing the country among the leading nations along with South Korea, Japan and the US. Security is a key enabler for emerging technologies and can be an important platform for growth. It is a key building block across all network elements, from the core to the end user. 5G is opening significant new opportunities for vertical industries. At MWC Shanghai 5G Tech Summit, we will focus on technologic, strategic and economic advances and concerns around 5G security. Industry experts will explore how 5G is enabling emerging technologies like autonomous driving, health and robotics and how mobile can develop its solutions and business propositions to remain a key partner for the long term.

5G Security
10:00 - 11:15 (GMT+8)

According to GSMA Intelligence’s Operator in Focus survey, operators are far more likely to lead with IoT as their main value-added proposition when selling to enterprise customers. 40% of operators in Asia Pacific choose IoT as their lead solution over other communications and enterprise networking services. As operators extend their IoT capabilities into 5G B2B propositions for smart manufacturing or other industrial use cases, many have bundled adjacent services such as cloud and analytics to enable business outcomes for enterprises. Security in IoT and 5G, however, is the foundation that enterprises become confident that the data can be relied on for business critical decisions. At MWC Shanghai 5G Tech Summit, we will focus on why 5G IoT security is different in the B2B context, how operators are securing their networks, and how 5G security services are essential to operators’ B2B strategy.

5G Emerging Tech
12:00 - 13:15 (GMT+8)

By 2025, 5G will account for 20% of global connections, with take-up particularly strong across developed Asia, North America and Europe. To support this generational shift and further drive consumer engagement, operators are expected to invest around $1.1 trillion worldwide between 2020 and 2025 in mobile capex, roughly 80% of which will be in 5G networks. 5G can influence the deployment of emerging technologies such as IoT, robotics, autonomous vehicles and VR. This session will showcase some of the new services and experiences that are transforming the world we live in today.
