5G and Enabled Technologies Conference

The world in 2019 has been buzzing around the potential of 5G and how its improved connectivity will improve lives and business operations. But while there’s excitement, there’s also pragmatism as business actors and telecom operators assess what changes will need to take place to make 5G a reality.

5G brings three new aspects to the table: greater speed (to move more data), lower latency (to be more responsive), and the ability to connect a lot more devices at once (for sensors and smart devices). Confindustria Serbia’s 2019 digital initiative will focus on two of the three aspects the 5G technology will create for business and consumers:

  • 5G in the telecommunications world and its application in Serbia
  • 5G as an enabling solution with application in industry/smart home/smart city

As per the agenda that follows, these two macro-sectors will be discussed by the most important telecom players operating in Serbia as well as the leading companies in the setup of a “smarter” transport, living and cities of the future.

Given that 5G will enable a faster flow of information that will involve communication among machines and this way be the real revolution of our century, security will become an even more pressing need for business, consumers as well as State institutions. As a matter of fact, technology advancement will push for more cooperation among the private and the public sector: in this respect Confindustria’s conference 5G and enabled technologies will analyze the use of blockchain technologies as a guarantee for privacy, transparency and security.
