5G rollout across the UK has commenced! The IET 5G conference 2020 will celebrate the launch of 5G technology with presentations from high profile speakers, industry leaders and innovators. For the first time, this year the event will provide a platform for industry and academia to showcase their innovations and to demonstrate the capability of their 5G testbed and trials for vertical applications. Sectors will include:

  • Transport and energy
