#aesssps #denver #comsoc #communications #5G #6G

5G represents a major departure from previous cellular generations. It will not only focus on speed, lower latency and spectrum efficiency but will also empower several verticals empowered by IoT, AI collecting and aggregating data for edge computing.

Moving into 6G, one of the key pursuits is support by AI bringing intelligence to the edge cloud performing analysis and generating insightful information and enable ubiquitous computing to empower future use cases and applications.

We’ll take a broader view as to the trends of collaborative technologies and impact on ecosystems and networking solution highlighting roadmap and applications and use cases.
