Debate 1 of the CW 5G Debate Series in association with the National Infrastructure Commission – London

Start date/time :  16:30 24th October 2016
End date/time :  20:00 24th October 2016
Venue :  Mathys & Squire LLP, The Shard, London SE1 9SG

Many of the debates around 5G focus on the technology solutions, but issues of policy and strategy must be considered as well. As part of their evidence gathering exercise in advance of the finalisation of their current work on 5G at the end of this calendar year, the NIC is supporting CW in delivering this series of two debates, chaired by Professor William Webb, deputy chair of CW. Also sponsored by Ofcom, Cambridge Consultants and Huawei, the debates will look beyond R&D and focus on how new sustainable business models may provide a return on investment and how the regulatory landscape might keep up with technological change.

Monday 24 October 2016
4.30pm - 8.00pm
Mathys & Squire LLP, The Shard, London

Please note that entry to the Shard will require delegates to show Photo ID and submit to a bag and body scan.

Topic of Debate 1:

What’s left for 5G now that 4G can do IoT and Gbits/s speeds? With WiFi expanding, separate IoT networks being deployed and fibre penetration increasing will we see multiple specialised network or one unifying system? What would be the implications?


Chaired by Professor William Webb of Weightless SIG and CW (Cambridge Wireless) Ltd.
