5G, the future mobile technology, is being rolled out across the globe as we speak. It is often seen as a solution to overcome a multitude of present-day connectivity challenges that have become even bigger during the COVID-19 crisis. But what does 5G do? What’s the difference with our current mobile technologies? And how secure is it?

During this webinar, Huawei’s Public Affairs and Communications Director Hannes Van Raemdonck will address these questions by taking you on Huawei’s journey from its humble beginnings to the global ICT solutions provider it has become today. Hannes will also share insights on the possibilities of 5G as an enabler for economic growth, and on the geopolitical developments which are increasingly impacting the global ICT industry.
