The demands of our hyper-connected, fully digitized, and data-driven intelligent society are pushing the capabilities of 5G technology to its limits. Beyond 5G (B5G) moves beyond the technologies that shaped 5G to create a pathway for the 6G technologies that will make a hyper-connected world possible.

B5G evolution tracks industry trends like higher frequency bands, the fusion of wireless with AI/ML, and edge and cloud native computing offer clues to what 6G technologies may look like in the future. Panelists will explore different ways to reimagine wireless network architecture to support new KPIs and encourage the evolution of the architecture to support 6G.
