Back in July of 2019, Latvia became one of the first countries in the world to introduce the new-generation 5G mobile network. The country’s leading mobile network operator “Latvian Mobile Telephone” (LMT) offers full access to the 5G network to anyone with a device supporting 5G technology.
In a nutshell, 5G will dramatically improve the responsiveness of all the current technologies on your phone, as well as make it possible for your home internet to come over the air rather than a telephone wire, cable or satellite dish. Later it will make possible new experiences that are still fringe, like augmented reality that works well anywhere, smart cities that are safer, cleaner and more efficient, and a truly connected car.
On July 19, 2019 the President of Latvia, Egils Levits said: “I am proud that thanks to LMT’s activities and cooperation with global companies such as NOKIA and INTEL, Latvia has positioned itself in the world’s avant-garde of the 5G communication network. I would like to see Latvia in the first row in many areas.”
// Ingmārs Pūķis, VP of LMT will lay out LMTs evolution from phones – the standard mobile operator modus operandi – to drones – exploring the opportunities afforded by 5G. The question of what’s in store for telecommunications within the next 5 years will be answered in detail, making sure to not miss the future of ICT.
// Jānis Sārts, Director of the NATO Strategic Communications Centre of Excellence in Riga. Don’t miss his keynote on 5G and Blockchain, and how both are new technologies and there are powers who use them to scare people.
// Rowan Högman is Research Leader 5G Industry Collaborations at Ericsson. During his keynote, Rowan will take you through a value chain with some practical examples and results showing how pioneers are implementing wireless technology and 5G today in the industry. Furthermore, what are the key manufacturing industry’s requirements on ICT and its players and what challenges are there to get there?
