SPIF members, who are exclusively tech scouts, R&D strategy, and investment professionals from global telcos, network operators and CSPs who are committed to partnering with, supporting and investing in startups and new technologies, meet privately before this month's Telecom Council Innovation Review to connect, share, and exchange ideas. This month's SPIF SPIF discussion is around what it take to deliver on the high bandwidth, low latency, and strong reliability promises of 5G.
Service Provider Innovation Forum (SPIF) meets privately, monthly before the regular Telecom Council Innovation Review and Startup Review meetings. Registration and agenda for the 2 meetings are combined.
Today's discussion is around delivering on the value of 5G: high bandwidth, low latency, and strong reliability and what network operators can do to build a useful 5G platform which will fully unleash the creativity and innovation in 5G apps. How does a carrier deliver a low-latency platform, a high-throughput, and a high degree of consistency - from end-to-end, and not only on the last hop air interface? We'll discuss innovations in the network, the core, and at the edge needed to unleash the potential of 5G.
