Talk of Smart Cities, the Internet of Things and 5G is everywhere but what exactly are these, how are they linked and what is needed to enable business to deliver all the much-anticipated conveniences of the future?

In this presentation, Dr. Henry Wong, Head of Strategic Wireless Networks and Core Technology at HKT will discuss why 5G is so important to the future development of Smart Cities and the Internet of Things, the developments which have been achieved with 4G technology and the seemingly endless opportunities which are opening up with the arrival of 5G technology. Using examples based on his current work, Dr Wong will discuss what is possible, what issues industry is facing in delivering these possibilities and what needs to happen in order to enable these possibilities to become reality.
