Title: 5G: new industrial revolution or only higher bandwidth?


Description: 5G is a new kind of network. It consists of a platform for innovations that will not only enhance today’s mobile broadband services but will also expand mobile networks to support a vast diversity of devices and services and connect new industries with improved performance, efficiency, and cost.

5G is seen like a technology as transformative as the automobile and electricity. Statements of this kind may seem excessive, but the need for transformation of telecommunications cannot be denied. The workshop, through interventions by experts from the world of both telecommunications and industry, has the ambition to shed light. The question is: while 4G allows for always-on connectivity, will 5G offer us only higher bandwidth and shorter latency or will it enable services that were unthinkable until now, that will reshape the world of industry and our lives?

This workshop will present and discuss the industrial revolution due to 5G. All issues related to industry will be touched upon (Industry 4.0, factory of the future, smart energy, logistic and smart ports). Addressing an audience of experts in optical communication, the topic of the evolution of optical communications to cope with 5G will be addressed.
