What 5G Really Means For IT

Run time: 35:39

For customers, 5G will mean faster speed and better coverage. For carriers, it means more customers and more towers. For IT, it means something else. There may be some not-so-immediately-obvious impacts from the new technology, like heavier loads on your applications and infrastructure due to the easier access to faster speeds, new sources of data (like IoT, Machine Learning and AI), and ensuring you have the right talent to handle the changes. In this session, we join IT experts in a discussion on the implications and solutions to adapting to the new networking technology.
