5G Symposium

ATIS 5G Symposium
Co-located at BTE

June 8 - 9, 2015
McCormick Place, Chicago, IL

To meet anticipated connectivity demands over the next decade, the ICT ecosystem is working to define the next generation of mobile communication — 5G.

5G’s success will be driven by how it effectively addresses the increased number of mobile devices, burgeoning IoT connections, and demand for applications enabling dramatically enhanced experiences and new forms of communication. It is anticipated that 5G will include various aspects of NFV, IoT, spectrum enhancements, and other emerging technologies to enable new services and devices. A number of organizations are defining the requirements to create the 5G roadmap—pivotal in how this new technology will meet the demands of the future.

The ATIS 5G Symposium focuses on the North American as well as the international opportunity 5G presents, addressing new business opportunities and the transition into what is expected to be a defining revolutionary and evolutionary technology.

Register today for the ATIS 5G Symposium.

ITSF 2015

November 3 - 5, 2015
Waldorf Astoria
Edinburgh, UK

Precise Frequency, Phase and Time are becoming ever more critical, featuring prominently in telecommunications, both wireline and wireless, and increasingly for small cell and edge of network applications, and also increasingly in power transmission, finance and defence.

In 4G (LTE, LTE-Advanced), and the evolution of cloud based networks, timing within and at the edge of the network is already a significant challenge and achieving resilient, accurate, yet low cost, UTC traceable timing solutions brings immediate benefits to capacity, range and service continuity. The critical role of timing in the network will only intensify i the future for the design and implementation of 5G.

ITSF 2015 is the 13th annual conference and will be exploring these and many more issues in depth with presentations from leading experts in the field. This year the conference will be preceded by an afternoon of tutorials.
