5G will be superior to current 4G systems in many aspects. 5G aims to narrow the gap between current networking technologies and the foreseen requirements of future 2020 networking and beyond, in this context, 5G aims to deliver:
*  higher speed connectivity for next generation advanced smart mobile applications;
*  lower energy consumption rates for networking equipment and mobile devices thereby increasing battery standby and lifetime, reducing operational expenditure for mobile operators, as well as alleviating public concerns on health risks towards exposure to radiation; and
* approach the notion of ubiquitous service connectivity, i.e. mobile reception and connectivity at any time, any place, and anywhere
* adaptability to the new nature of services and devices (such as the support for smart cities and Internet of Things (IoT)).
5G will be a real game changer with huge impact on all industries and the health sector. However, 5G is still under development with some pre-commercial deployments planned for 2018 and first commercial services not available till late 2020. This event will cover practical information about the 5G Research and development, impact, potential and challenges.

Who should attend? Businesses and professionals wanting to learn more about 5G and its potential and researchers/students who wish to find out more about 5G research areas and challenges.
There will be an opportunity to discuss ideas, projects and areas of interest with the speakers after the event.
