The Who, What, Where, When, Why and How of Private 5G

The final agenda for the Private 5G Event conference at ONUG Fall is locked down, and I am pleased that the participating speakers and session moderators are poised to deliver a solid read out on the current who, what, where, when, why and how of private 5G networks.

Darius Singh at STL Partners sets the stage for the conference by exploring how businesses will benefit by adopting private 5G at the enterprise edge.

IDC analyst Patrick Filkins moderates the first three sessions after Darius’ lead-off presentation, starting with Highway 9 Networks CEO Allwyn Sequeira’s keynote describing private 5G challenges, opportunities and new ways to think about 5G networks in the broader context of enterprise device mobility and the need for ubiquitous access to cloud-based applications and data.

Next up, Verizon is sponsoring a panel discussion on private 5G use cases across a wide range of industry verticals, which will also include speakers from Nokia and Microland. This session is followed by a speaker from Oceus describing the real-world challenges of designing, deploying and operating complex private 5G networks in demanding, mission-critical environments.

After the networking break, Johna Till Johnson of Nemertes Research moderates a panel in which speakers from the 5G Open Innovation Lab, Future Technologies and Ericsson present real-world case studies describing why and how enterprise adopters are deploying private 5G networks.

Private 5G networks are not one-size-fits-all, so in the next session, Mike Fratto at S&P Global Market Intelligence is moderating a panel discussion covering the range of options enterprise adopters have for deploying private 5G in typical scenarios.

The conference concludes with an analyst roundtable discussion in which Patrick, Johna, and Mike share their views on the private 5G market and answer questions from the audience.

For enterprise consumers and suppliers interested in participating in the ONUG Collaborative’s Private 5G Working Group, the analyst roundtable is followed by a private 5G birds-of-a-feather session, which is an opportunity for attendees to meet members of the new working group and learn what other companies in the ONUG Community are doing in private 5G.
