11 September 2019 Chronos is pleased to announce Keynote Zahid Ghadialy, Senior Director with Parallel Wireless and Principal Analyst & Consultant, 3G4GZahid will present: 5G Advancements and Challenges beyond Release 15. "With the confidence built by initial 5G deployments rollouts based on Non-Standalone architecture gaining momentum, the mobile community is looking at what comes next. Service Providers are thinking about Standalone (SA) deployments, vendors are thinking about use cases and verticals, verticals are looking at requirements and alternatives, standards are looking at Release-17 and researchers are thinking about beyond-5G and 6G. This talk will look at how different pieces of the jigsaw puzzle fit together and what the challenges are going forward."

Chronos is also pleased to announce that Joe Neil, Network Architect with Microchip, Inc. will deliver: The eRAN (“elastic” gNodeB) and the Implications for 5GNR Sync Architectures. "5G will enable a combination of network services that together will introduce a new level of flexibility in network architectures. Current models built on single operator owned and operated  DRAN/CRAN complemented by DAS and Small Cells will be synthesized into common physical plant, sliced & virtualized, and served by the Ethernet based  Elastic RAN (ERAN) that will enable 5GNR Advanced services to any size of radio cluster.  One key attribute for the ERAN will be the tight synchronisation services required.  We will examine and compare the different options for engineering timing services into this evolving paradigm."

As all UK networks roll out their initial 5G coverage, what does that mean for customers? What do customers want from 5G? Perhaps more importantly what does that mean for their networks? What does 5G mean to them? Does a drive for LTE-A delivery as a staging post count as 5G strategy?

Join us at Kings Place, 90 York Way, London, N1 9AG on Thursday 3rd October 09:10 - 15:30 for our latest PhaseReady Event: The 5G Field of Dreams -  where we will discuss the role timing will have in delivering networks of the future.
