CTIA, the wireless industry association, launched 5G Futures, a new event series featuring the policymakers and innovators that are making 5G a reality. The next generation of wireless, 5G will enable the industries of the future, from smart cities to the Internet of Things. The series began in Houston yesterday. 5G events in Denver, Minneapolis and Indianapolis are on tap for the rest of this month.
“From new smartphone applications to driverless cars, remote healthcare, connected education and more, the future is being built on 5G. We’re bringing 5G Futures to the cities where next-generation wireless is coming to life to foster conversations about how 5G will transform these communities,” said CTIA SVP/Chief Communications Officer Nick Ludlum.
Each 5G Futures event features a unique set of speakers and panelists. Confirmed speakers include U.S. Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Todd Young (R-IN), state and local elected officials, and wireless industry experts from AT&T, Ericsson, Intel, Sprint, T-Mobile, Qualcomm, and Verizon.
