Share Article

Topics focus on policy, infrastructure deployment, smart cities, 5G/connectivity plans for rural communities, and public-private partnerships to invest in 5G.

“When DC5G was launched in 2017, it was at the request of the community with the purpose to knock down the silos and bring together a greater group of 5G-invested communities to have a more holistic conversation,” said DC5G Chairman Jeffrey Hill.

DC5G has revealed its 2018 conference agenda, built by an Advisory Board and developed for municipalities, satellite and terrestrial service providers, policy makers, enterprise representatives and innovative adopters. The second annual DC5G will take place on November 12-13, 2018 at the Capital Hilton in Washington, DC. After a successful inaugural year, the event is focused on forging ahead and tackling smart communities, and how 5G networks can enable not only the applications of tomorrow, but provide a solid foundation for the technology and applications not even thought of yet.

“When DC5G was launched in 2017, it was at the request of the community with the purpose to knock down the silos and bring together a greater group of 5G-invested communities to have a more holistic conversation,” said Chairman Jeffrey Hill. “We’ve experienced an outpouring of support from the greater telecom community, and are proud to have such an inspired group of individuals on our 2018 Advisory Board.”
