"Technology Drivers for Deployment and Full Potential Utilization of 5G"
Andrea Caldini holds a technical responsibility for planning, engineering, performance and life cycle management of Verizon’s Global Business product portfolio. Prior to her current role, Caldini served in various field territory roles including Vice President of Field Network GLS, East and South for Verizon Wireless; responsible for the network build and performance of Verizon Wireless industry-leading voice and data networks, including its growing 4G LTE network, 5G UWB and Nationwide network and fiber network.
The rate of change for telecommunications is accelerating. We will see more opportunity, disruption, innovation, and invention in the next decade than we have seen in the past three. All this will depend on next gen connectivity. Telecom networks will give way to 5G enabled, intelligent edge-empowered platforms that resemble Computational Solution Utilities more than the networks of today.
We are building this, inventing this at Verizon today. We work to build tomorrow’s best network, 5G, the next generation of wireless technology. Verizon is taking a strong leadership role in 5G for our customers, building on the foundation of being the first to deploy 3G and 4G LTE Networks nationally.
This will simply change the way we work, live and play. Many verticals will be disrupted. Interestingly, a primary design driver will be 'Submergence', where the technology that is progressively more pervasive is pushed below the water line so that the service, the product, the solution, and the experience are what comes into focus, not the ingenious underlying technology.
What Prior Attendees
“I want to thank IWCS for foraging forward with the conference in light of everything that we are all going through on a global basis with COVID and all of the challenges that has presented to us. It’s great! I am glad this conference is taking place virtually and I am glad that Saco could be a part of it and support it.”
“Thank you and your organization for proceeding with this year’s show and finding a solid virtual platform. We’ve participated in one or two other virtual shows, and they were not nearly as polished as this one.”
“I spent some time in the virtual supplier exhibition today. I really didn’t know what to expect, but I thought the platform worked out well, and there was some interesting information there. We are all learning to adapt to changes, but I am seeing a lot of engagement so far in the conference with the new platform.”
“This format was way different from anything I’ve experienced before but clearly it was good to keep momentum going by holding this presentation forum.”
“We are all trying to learn new ways to communicate, and I am glad to see IWCS is leading the charge by coming up with innovative ways for companies all through the wire and cable supply chain to communicate.”
