Evolving 5G for the next decade

Szabolcs Malomsoky, PhD

Head of Ericsson Research Budapest


5G networks are emerging all across the globe. Mobile broadband services are being significantly improved enabling even richer experiences compared to today’s smartphone apps. Moreover, new applications of mobile networks are being invented related to e.g. the manufacturing and automotive industries. These require a networking and compute infrastructure which can provide ultra-low latency and high reliability. 5G and its future evolution is a digital infrastructure for industrial and societal transformation. In this talk I highlight new enabling technologies including research results from the Research Lab I’m heading.
