The directors of the three ITU sectors launched the “Setting the Scene for 5G: Opportunities & Challenges” report at the start of the session on Leapfrogging to 5G?
This report highlights 16 key issues and responses for policy-makers to consider as they formulate strategies to stimulate investment in 5G networks. Together they represent a powerful means of developing an overall approach across major aspects of migration and, where appropriate, embarking on a carefully facilitated, accelerated transition to 5G. It is further designed to help policy-makers, regulators and operators work together effectively, both to benefit from the many opportunities that this new technology represents and to meet the challenges it entails.
