13:40 An analytical look at 5G latency, slicing and connectivity
The 5th generation of mobile networks will bring multiple changes. This presentation will compare 4G and 5G, and give a theoretical point of view on the causes of latency, the enablers of slicing, and the possibility of a high number of devices connected simultaneously. The presentation will zoom in on what is needed for current and future applications, and give you an update on the state of the art of the relevant characteristics.
