Event Details

What’s your company’s plan for 5G?  Everybody knows that 5G mobile networks are coming in 2019, but oddly, very few companies have a strategy in place to prepare for 5G.  And that matters a great deal, because during the last transition, from 3G to 4G, the companies that were prepared experienced explosive growth to the global scale, while the companies that weren’t prepared … well, … they no longer exist.  At least, not in their previous form.  The losers of the 4G era got acquired, dismantled, and sold off as spare parts.  Those were the casualties of the last phase of technological change.  Don’t let this happen to you in 5G.

This special presentation will give the METAL members an overview of the sweeping changes that lie ahead in the very near future, beginning in 2019 as we enter the 5G era. Several key technologies were introduced in the 4G era: now they are mature and ready for hyperconnectivity. 5G will link them and recombine them in completely new ways. And when that happens, many industries will be transformed.

Don’t miss this blockbuster end-of-the-year session.  You’ll learn which industries are most likely to be transformed, which technology trends will be amplified and intensified, and the broader impact on government, institutions, and society.  Attend this session to be prepared for a year of wonders.

Robert Tercek, a perennial favorite speaker at METAL gatherings, has prepared this new talk exclusively for METAL.  This presentation draws on his experience in Internet technology, media, telecommunications, software standards, and digital service design. Tercek provides strategy and insight for Fortune 500 firms including AT&T, Microsoft, Google, IBM, HPE as well as bleeding edge startup ventures, standards bodies, government agencies, and educational institutions.   He is the author of VAPORIZED: Solid Strategies For Success In A Dematerialized World, the winner of the 2016 International Book of the Year prize from GetAbstract.
