MWC 2018 preview: first 5G results, with big ambitions

Monday 19 February 2018 | 12:41 CET | Author: Bart Garvelink | Background
Mobile World Congress starts on 26 February, and the network equipment vendors and mobile operators are expected to outline their latest technological developments and plans for the coming years. Several 'proofs of concept' for 5G services are expected to be on display in Barcelona, as the industry gears up for the launch of the first 5G networks at the end of this year or early 2019. The launch schedule is ambitious, as 5G brings much more than new radio technology to the market. While the 5G pioneers are moving ahead quickly, much is still to be done to realise the high ambitions of 5G.
