VMware: The Impact of 5G on Major Events Around the World
The transition from 4G to 5G wireless networks is a hot topic at Mobile World Congress 2017, with various industry players speculating on the near-term and long-term impact of fifth-generation cellular technology. Against that backdrop, VMware’s own Pat Gelsinger, along with Patrick Adiba, Group EVP & Chief Commercial Officer at Atos, took to the keynote stage to share a perspective on what it will take to deploy 5G successfully in the coming years, with a focus on global sporting events as a natural proving ground for the promise and potential of 5G.
Gelsinger and Adiba explored several provocative questions related to 5G: For example, with the exponential increase in data speeds promised by 5G, can we expect a new wave of immersive 3D experiences at massive scale? What are the security implications of the 5G standard? Can 5G address some of the economic constraints currently holding back innovation in new mobile services? When you consider global sporting events such as the World Cup or Olympic Games, is there an opportunity to fundamentally change the viewing experience for billions worldwide, especially as we move to a software-driven, cloud model for media production and distribution?
Together, VMware’s Gelsinger and Atos’ Adiba laid out three imperatives for the mobile industry in order to realize the full potential of 5G.
