Asia’s Largest Ever 5G Summit ‘5G Asia’ is Announced

Three-day summit to reveal the ‘future of 5G’ at Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands from 26th – 28th September 2016

Singapore, 19TH August 2016 – As Asia Pacific continues to play a dominant role in global 5G, the region’s largest summit to date, 5G Asia, has announced it will be taking place over three days at Marina Bay Sands from 26th – 28th September 2016.

Formerly, known as LTE Asia, 5G Asia will be bigger than ever before, delivering an extensive ‘industry breaking’ agenda across a number of topics to reveal the ‘future of 5G’ - aimed at both the advanced and emerging markets in the region.

This year’s event will offer attendees an unrivalled opportunity to discover how the most innovative operators are getting 5G ready, along with how they will start to optimise their own LTE Networks through Carrier Aggregation, LTE-A, VoLTE, Video and RCS. 

Moving towards a connected generation where connectivity is a key challenge, the event will hear from IoT experts for the first time, to share use case for 5G networks while the demo zone in the exhibition will reveal hands-on examples of what the future holds.

Filled with cutting-edge content, future-focused product demo and unrivalled opportunities to meet with the LTE and 5G ecosystem, 5G Asia is the leading event in the APAC region to set the path for the connected future. Produced by Network Virtualisation and SDN Asia, 5G Asia provides the platform to discuss the future of wireless networks and technology in the APAC region - the most advanced LTE & 5G markets in the world.

5G Asia is set to help delegates visualise the end-to-end 5G ecosystem and requirements needed to build the 5G network. Speakers at the 5G Asia Summit include, but are not limited to Jon Vestal, Vice President Product Architecture of Telstra, Fumio Watanabe, Chairman of KDDI R&D Labs, Park Jin-hyo, Senior Vice President of SK Telecom and Ming Lim, Director Product Development of Samsung.

Alongside the event’s stellar speaker line-up, LTE Asia also boasts a 50% operator attendance and will provide additional opportunities for delegates, including executive speed networking sessions and roundtables with the region’s key players and a ‘pitch to the press’ section - uniquely set up to give a platform to the industry’s start-ups.

‘Senior Portfolio Director: Sam Oakley said; “While LTE has opened many eyes and created opportunities around the world, 5G will take mobile to the next level. Over the coming months and years, 5G standards will be further clarified and nowhere is innovation more advanced than in the Asia-Pacific region. 5G will emphasize features like ultra-mobile broadband, low latency and massive connectivity and through 5G Asia, attendees will have the opportunity to find out more about 5G and its benefits”.
