#CTS19: 5G – Evolution or Revolution?

On Tuesday, June 4, 2019, at The 2019 Canadian Telecom Summit, Eric Smith, VP, Regulatory Affairs for the Canadian Wireless Telecommunications Association moderated a panel entitled “5G: Evolution or Revolution?”, reprising his role from 2018.

Panelists were:
•  Alexander Brock, SVP, Network Technology, Rogers
•  Ian Fogg, VP Analysis, Opensignal
•  Anoop Kulkarni, Global Head of Sales for 5G Network Planning, Optimization and Analytics, Nokia
•  Sean Newman, Sr VP and Director PM, Corero Network Security

Will 5G be evolutionary or revolutionary?

As recounted in the CARTT.ca account of the panel, the moderator, Eric Smith said: “When I got the assignment, I did what any deep thinker does: I Googled ‘is 5G an evolution or revolution?'” The results, he said, varied from headlines saying 5G will be as revolutionary as electricity for the automobile and ‘5G, don’t believe the hype’, to ‘5G is a CIA plot’.
