At this international symposium, the results of this year’s 5G Field Trials will be widely announced in Japan and overseas, and in order to give visitors a chance to experience the world of 5G realization, the exhibition on the 5G Field Trials will be held in the venue. Conduct a demo. In addition, a presentation panel discussion will be held by stakeholders in 5G utilization fields to share the impact of 5G and discuss issues to accelerate the realization.
