Wireless & Convergence

Customers expect seamless and uninterrupted connectivity everywhere.

Simply providing connectivity over multiple access network types is not sufficient to meet customers’ expectations and delivering operational efficiencies when managing these as independent networks. This track will explore building a converged network, examining the utilization of O-RAN, multi-access technologies, network slicing, and Wi-Fi to provide a comprehensive solution.
