Why 6GSymposium Fall?

What comes after 5G will be very different from what has gone before. The forces driving its creation include unprecedented social and environmental factors, while the economic opportunity from getting it right could be revolutionary. The complexity of unifying telecoms, cloud, enterprise OT, AI and more in a way that’s agile, usable and secure is daunting… and is being tackled by some of the best minds in the region. 
 
The 6GSymposium will bring together key stakeholders from across government, academia, the telecoms industry and beyond, to help build a strong North American position in the technology, business and policy environment beyond 5G and answer the changing needs of the region in the coming decades. Join us to learn and engage with the transformational process that the development of 6G in North America represents.
