5G and its Impact to Applications | Tuesday, November 14 at 2:30 PM

(Please note that all Summit sessions will be presented in English)

Next-generation 5G mobile networks are touted as catalysts for the next revolution in mobile technology, as multi-gig speeds open up new opportunities for innovation. But speed increases are not the only story.  As well as being 100 times faster than 4G, 5G will also deliver significant decreases in latency. In combination, these advances will rock the status quo in software development, user experience and applications. Ray, a seasoned entrepreneur and venture capitalist, will discuss how 5G networking will transform our mobile lives and become central to strategic investment decisions of venture capitalists in Canada and around the world.
