 [A Giant Leap for Mankind: the Economic and Social Impact of 5G]

5G will be a transformative technology. We all agree on that.

But why? The answer is because 5G is not just faster than existing mobile technology, but more capable and more versatile.
In this keynote, Rajeev Suri will discuss 5Gs capabilities as well as its almost unlimited potential to increase not only connectivity, but global trade, health and equality – at a moment when these issues are more important than ever.

He will explain how Nokia is leading the development and use of 5G technology, and will explore how government and business can be sure to reap the benefits that 5G is already beginning to bring.
