The Virtual 5G Forum will analyse the main cases of use of 5G on 6th and 7th May: its application in assisted driving, in the dissemination of audiovisual content, in the 4.0 industry, as well as its application in tourism, health and residential areas.

“All the pilots we are doing are different from each other, in each new pilot we will use different technologies and network capabilities for different use cases. We are creating dozens of new use cases with 5G”, says Fernandez.
