5G joins a long list of disruptive technologies that have impacted the channel but this network platform is about to become a major game changer not only for the big three U.S. cellular companies, but also for you and your customers. This discussion, led by two industry experts, will dig deep into the channel opportunities around 5G starting with narrowband technologies. Narrowband has been grossly underutilized as cost saving tool for businesses operating in a multitude of markets and especially when it comes to deploying internet of things solutions. Next, you will hear about wideband capabilities that allow customers to add command, control and analytics to the mix. This is where large amounts of data can be collected, machine decisions made in real-time, and long-term forecasts and strategies created. Hear about a case study currently ongoing in Michigan called Mcity before the session concludes with a discussion around multi-access computing which will dramatically reduce business costs across the board and give first mover advantages to your business clients.
