As 5G networks emerge, speculation is growing about what use cases are possible. In its peak hype cycle, 5G promises to be everything for everyone.  In reality, it offers three distinct capabilities: 1.) ultra-high speeds for enhanced broadband, 2.) ultra-low latency for mission-critical applications and 3.) massive internet of things (IoT) for billions of devices.

In the early phases of 5G, when it gets off the ground in 2019 and 2020, cost-effective broadband data capacity will be its best use case. As the technology continues to evolve watch for vertical industries — from healthcare to smart cities, to remote industrial machine operation, to virtual entertainment — to experience revolutionary changes.

At the forefront of this revolution is San Diego-based XCOM, a new idea from some of the brightest minds formerly at Qualcomm.  And make no mistake, their new company could be just as big as the one they left.

Hear directly from Anton Monk, responsible for Technology Strategy and Business Development at XCOM. Joining Dr Monk is one of XCOM’s use cases from David Pinn, VP Strategy, Brain Corp. We’ll also hear about Smart Cities applications from CUBIC’s head of Global Product Management, Erik Vlugt.
