Encouraging discussions on current MBB business perspectives and examine how the network evolves to 5G and functions virtualization.

We have now confirmed speakers from major global operators, regulators and standards bodies, industry analyst firms, chipset and device manufacturers, mobile content providers, major mobile service companies and more - all of whom are keen to share their experiences and points of view on the explosive growth of the MBB industry. The overall objective of the Forum is to encourage thoughtful discussions and interactions with MBB ecosystem leaders from around the world. Some of the topics currently under discussion with our global partners include:

Topics

  • › MBB Trends, Innovations and 5G

    During the first session of the forum, you will hear top level industry executives debate how MBB and ICT can positively impact global economies by building a better connected world. The value of our digital world is growing, transforming and enriching the physical world around everyone, everything, and everywhere. Huawei's vision and plans on the road to 5G and its definition will be clearly detailed.

  • › Best LTE Experience and Business Development

    In the second session, you will hear first hand from some of the world's leading LTE network operators about their experiences in building and running successful networks. You will also learn about the new LTE business opportunities realised by these operators. The One LTE strategy and solution will also be discussed. At the end of the session, there will be a live panel where you will be encouraged to interact with top industry leaders as they describe the innovative services running on their superior MBB networks. You will also learn of Huawei's plans and industry feedback on 4.5G advancements towards 5G.

  • › Defining 5G

    Because spectrum is the life blood of our MBB industry and the foundation of all technology and wireless generation definitions and innovations, this session will start by discussing spectrum strategy, licensing, pricing, and regulations. There will be also an interactive panel discussing how to prepare for 5G spectrum definition and WRC15. The discussion will extend to unlicensed spectrum, definitions for 5G parameters, services and key technical architecture and innovations.

  • › Discovering New MBB Business Opportunities

    Consumer business is only one of a number possible revenue streams for operators. Verticals, enterprise and OTT cooperation are all potential segments for operators to target. Serving all segments with full possible access and a full suite of services (voice, data, video, cloud, XaaS) is necessary for operators to build a sustainable and profitable MBB business. You will learn about this as well as the role that big data analytics has in its facilitation. During the session, you will also hear cases of successful deployment in Tech Cities around the world.

  • › Mobile Network of Things

    During the final session of the forum and before heading to the industry summits, you will have a chance to hear about the key factors for future MBB success, the Mobile Network of Things (MoT). After hearing about how MBB is enabling vertical business services around the world, you are encouraged to participate in an interactive connected-car panel which includes representatives from Volvo, Audi, Formula E, PSA Peugeot Citroën, Analysys Mason. Together, they will discuss opportunities, requirements and the future reality of the connected-car business.
