BEREC Workshop on 5G

Event date: 03.06.2021

On 3 June 2021, BEREC organised a public online workshop on 5G. The event focused on two themes - New Business Models and Value Chains and Innovation.

BEREC Working Group on Planning and Future Trends (PFT WG) invited stakeholders to share their insight on 5G New Business Models and Value Chains with a special emphasis on supply-chain diversification and its impact on competition. Moreover, this 5G workshop focused on the anticipated pace of innovation, thanks to the participation of experts, who have participated in 5G trials and pilots.

The event was held online via the Webex.

Workshop's Agenda
In the first session, after introductory remarks by Jean Marie Mifsud, Co-chair of the BEREC PFT WG, the 1st panel discussion brought together experts in the possible supply-chain diversification that 5G may enable, such as Neutral Host Operators and Private 5G Networks.

The second session featured a 2nd panel that discussed issues related to the anticipated pace of innovation in 5G services moderated by Bert Klaassens, Co-chair of the BEREC PFT WG. This session was joined by experts in the field of 5G Verticals and emerging trends, such as Digital Twins and Block chain.

Participants attending the event were able to send questions to the speakers beforehand by indicating them in the registration for or via email to workshop@berec.europa.eu. There was also the opportunity to ask questions through a chat function during the event.

Background information
