June 2018, the first set of 5G communication standards was officially adopted and the world officially enters the era of 5G commercialization. The advancement has triggered a revolutionary reform to the new vertical market with innovative applications set to affect all lives. Meanwhile, a new commercial operational model has been shaping. Based on the survey from  HIS, by 2035, the value of Taiwan 5G productions will be worth 134 billion US dollars. The economic contribution from 5G+ generation will be 20 times more than the one offered by 4G.

On the verge of  the 5G era, it is important to effectively integrate the 5G communication technology with other new IT technology in order to create new business opportunities for the whole industry.

The 5G Summit will continue its cooperation with COMPUTEX 2019 as the best platform for 5G+ICT. The theme of this Summit will be “Readiness for 5G – Technology, Service and Policy”. Renowned speakers from Germany, UK, Japan, and USA represent government agencies, industry entities, academic fields, and leading manufacturers of 5G have been invited to share their experience and knowledge on 5G vertical technology, new application, spectrum planning, and showcasing the latest trend of 5G. More than 300 professionals representing supervisory authorities, policymakers, operators and key telecommunication companies will attend the Event. The Taipei 5G Summit will be the best platform for participants to learn and build connections.
