Feeding the Cloud: The Role of 5G and Low-Power Wireless in our Connected World

As data volumes double every 12 months and Cloud-based rapidly expands, wireless networking technologies are evolving to keep up with the pace of change.  5G standards, now being finalized, and the low-power next-generation communication networks aimed at the IoT, will need new semiconductor solutions. Cloud providers will need a fast ramp in processing and networking speeds, with disruptive approaches for custom processors, silicon photonics, and new memory technologies.  

Market analysts and industry experts will discuss the impact of low power wireless, 5G, and the Cloud on the vertical supply chain, from the design community to device and materials suppliers. Please join your colleagues as speakers and panelists address the future initiatives and how suppliers can engage with customers.
