5G Demystified; the what, when and where.

Andy Sutton (BT Principal Network Architect) will provide an update and review of the transformational plans, capabilities and outcomes from 5G deployments in the UK. 5G networks are already enabling a step change in the range and capability of innovative applications from IoT to robotics. That pace of change is due to accelerate as 5G moves from its initial enhanced mobile broadband phase to deliver ultra-reliable and low latency communications along with massive machine type connectivity.

Andy has more than 30 years’ experience in the industry and is uniquely well placed to provide an authoritative review of the results to date and the reality of developing plans. Andy is responsible for 4G and 5G radio access network architecture, mobile backhaul and fronthaul and aspects of 5G end to end network architecture at BT.
