Nokia and NYU WIRELESS have made the decision to cancel the 2020 Brooklyn 5G summit event.
After a full assessment of the risks related to the continued spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus. Our primary focus has been to safeguard the health and well-being of our employees and others while also recognizing responsibility to the industry and customers. Since its outbreak, we have been carefully monitoring the situation and believe this is the most prudent decision.
We are looking at various options for how we can deliver some of the relevant talks and discussions to the event attendees in a virtual format. Additionally, we plan to bring the physical event back to Brooklyn in 2021. We will provide more information on this in the coming days.
The Summit will focus on the theme “Beyond Broadband: 5G in the Era of Industrial Automation”. The 2020 summit will examine the status of 5G deployments in public and non-public industrial IoT (IIoT) networks, and will serve as a forum for debating the key issues facing the industry, including critical spectral and economic factors that will drive the 4th Industrial revolution. The event will highlight the latest innovations in all 5G domains, including the evolution of 5G New Radio and 5G Core, as well as emerging disruptive technologies, such as high-band mmWave, self-backhauling, time-sensitive networking, and non-terrestrial communications.
Experts from around the globe will explore promising use cases in industrial and infrastructure automation. Major corporations will join startups in sharing their perspectives on the problems they must tackle in the 5G era. In addition to presentations from leading experts and lively panel discussions, there also will be exhibitions featuring demonstrations of the most cutting-edge 5G technologies.
