This will be accompanied by contributions from key resource persons and deliberations on crucial steps to prepare for and maximise value in the 5G era. We will also deliberate on the opportunities for collaboration with other stakeholders in our ecosystem to accelerate digital transformation, overcome barriers to adoption of NGN services, and effectively serve customers of the future.
