One year to go for 5G in Belgium: Should you head to the starting block?

Capgemini Research Institute report “5G in Industrial Operations” revealed that 75% of industry clients believe 5G is an enabler for the digital transformation of their businesses. 65% are willing to implement 5G for operations within two years of availability, and 33% will consider applying for a local 5G license to build a private 5G network when regulation allows.
With a 5G auction and probably 5G roll-out at scale starting next year in Belgium, public and private enterprises of all sizes across industry verticals will have to take a stand. What’s the added value of 5G? What opportunities does it offer? And is 5G really a “must do”? And, if we must get prepared: for what?
Taking as a starting point the conclusion of Capgemini’s latest 5G research and client engagement, this session will provide a state of the market and review the options for decision makers in the Digital Transformation space.
