Towards a 5G Future - 2019 World Telecom Smart City Conference

2019 World Telecom Smart City Conference

Building Smart City has become an important trend globally. In the past, telecom operators were already crucial partners in terms of city infrastructure. With IoT becoming basic communication facilities in every city, the role of telecom operators cannot be overemphasized in smart city development.

The World Telecom Smart City Conference has thus been one of the highlights in the Smart City Summit & Expo every year, where most renowned operators are invited to share their experience in the construction of smart cities.

The technology of 5G Mobile Networks will gradually expand the implementation in cities and global business by 2020, in which Connected Cars and Artificial Intelligence will also be integrated, contributing to a rapid market development. In response to such transformation, 2019 World Telecom Smart City Conference will be conducted under these themes: “Towards A 5G Future;” “Case Studies of Smart City Innovation;” “Smart City for A Better Tomorrow.” The rich exchange of all innovations generates strong force that fosters the development of smart cities.

This is a growing network where diverse opportunities are inspired. We are now calling for telecom operators and experts alike to join us at Smart City Summit & Expo 2019.
