The network of the future

There’s been a lot of excitement about the implications of 5G. There is no doubt it’s a game changer. 5G will take us from a world of connecting people to each other and the internet, to a world of ultra-fast mobile speeds and the Internet of Things (IoT) on a scale never before imagined. These developments will unleash a wave of new opportunities - from smart cities and smart homes, to drones and driverless cars, and augmented reality in our homes, work places and public spaces.

“5G is the next evolution in mobile technologies which will offer unprecedented productivity and connectivity, enabling impacts for Australia’s economy and society.”

Chris Althaus, CEO, Australian Mobile Telecommunications Association (AMTA)

So, what does that mean for you and your business? How will it affect logistics, customer experience and mobility? What about IoT and connected workplaces? And how is it going to impact customer behaviour?

At Telstra Vantage, we’ll explore all the big questions. You’ll be able to get hands-on with the network of the future with live demonstrations in the Village, showing just how much of an impact 5G will have on your existing systems and devices.

In addition, we’ve developed a special keynote session ‘Networks of the future – 5G, innovation and investment’ that will explore the implications of 5G on the way we do business.

The 5G Boom*

  • 5G is expected to create a boom in Australia’s and the world’s digital economies
  • It’s expected to add to the already significant and growing $34 billion in long-term productivity benefits from mobile
  • Sectors and industries that will benefit most include manufacturing, energy and utilities, automotive and transport, financial services, health, education and media / entertainment
  • New opportunities will arise from applications such as artificial intelligence, robotics, drones, Internet of Things, self-driving cars, plus virtual and augmented reality.

“5G will help deliver the next industrial revolution, unlocking opportunities across industries and markets and we want to ensure Australians are among the first in the world to gain access to it.”

Robyn Denholm, Chief Operations Officer, Telstra

That means your future network is critical to your business, and you need to ensure you’re both an early and smart adopter of new technology in order to stay ahead of your competition.
