G is here. The much anticipated
infrastructure that will enable a smarter
and more connected world promised to drive
digital economies for governments, to create
new monetization opportunities for businesses
and offer a real perceivable difference over 4G
for consumers.
Has it delivered? Well, not yet. However,
there have been some critical changes on the
supply side. Firstly, sites, especially indoor
sites, are no longer solely owned by mobile
operators but increasingly owned by tower
companies and neutral hosts. Secondly, an
Open Site Interest Group has been set up.
Thirdly, industry is increasingly accelerating
applications through standardization. Lastly,
a spirit of enablement across the region is
helping to bring it all together through industry
collaborations.
So, will it happen? Possibly. To make it
reality, industry needs to focus and look
indoors.
As the number of 5G launches increase
in number, mobile data usage will increase
exponentially alongside new applications
such as IoT, virtual/augmented reality, 8K live

video streaming and location-based services.
With 80% of network traffic already originating
from indoors, it is not hard to see that indoor
use cases will not only become a key driver
of 5G networks but also a trigger to revisit
customer experience indoors and focus of
CAPEX for 5G on the supply side.
In a recent survey 79% of respondents
said that they will rate their mobile operator
according to the indoor network quality that
they experience. User needs are changing on
the demand side and Digital Indoor Systems
(DIS) will be critical to enabling monetization
of 5G.
A key success factor for DIS would be for
mobile operators to focus on key verticals
where there will be stronger growth and

Dr Amal Punchihewa, Distinguished Lecturer of
Broadcast Technology Society of IEEE, considers the
impact of 5G and how future societies will be
shaped by improved connectivity...

T

he Summit starts with a combined plenary
themed on shaping future societies for
both BroadcastAsia and CommunicAsia
participants at the Marina Bay Sands.
The opening keynote recognizes the
leading role that this has to play within
organizations and societies. The region,
as we find with the rest of the world, facing
challenges and opportunities brought
forward by rapid technological advances.
Businesses are talking about transformation
driven by unprecedented convergence in
technology and services. Convergence as
well as artificial intelligence (AI), automation,
Internet of Things (IoT), blockchain and
5G are reshaping business operations and
architectures. They have impacted the social
eco-system forcing us to review regulatory
frameworks.
We have witnessed a high level of

convergence in the media and telco
industries, the question that needs to
be asked is what is going on now: Is it
consolidation, competition or collaboration?
The summit aims to answer this.
A number of cellular operators in the APAC
region are making plans for the introduction
of 5G services in a commercial platform after
having carried out some trails. As 5G offers
little for current voice communication, 5G
operators need to work with a wide range of
industries by finding new applications and
partners. Cross-industry collaboration will be
the key to making 5G a success. There will
be a CXO roundtable on 5G that will broadly
address 5G as the future game changer of
data, networks and consumption. Based on
current trails, knowledge and experiences,
the session will discuss challenges and
journey ahead for 5G commercialization with

a clearer value proposition for 5G indoor
connectivity. Some examples of the more
promising key verticals include:
*	 Shopping	 malls	 as	 shopping	 experience	
centers providing value added network-based
services such as AR/VR game services and
heat maps;
*	 Stadiums	 to	 offer	 unique,	 thrilling	
experiences for audiences using AR;
*	 Industry	 to	 support	 augmented	 remote	
service assistance and analysis to improve
operational efficiency and productivity.
In conclusion, conventional economics
dictate that the supply side needs to be
optimized to address changes on the demand
side. There is no doubt that indoor use cases
will become a key driver of 5G networks and
correspondingly users will make increasing
demands on their mobile operator when it
comes to the indoor environment. Focus
needs to shift to transforming the indoors
environment for DIS to enable 5G within
select key verticals to trigger the next wave of
growth.
5G is here, it is time to focus and look
indoors.
regional leaders. A session will present 5G
deployment plans, use cases with partners,
spectrum status in the various countries,
lessons learnt from 3G and 4G.
Music and video streaming services
are playing a significant role by providing
content for digital media consumption.
Media organizations - broadcasters, OTT
and Pay-TV - are seeking to grow and trying
hard to maintain the current audience base.
The partnerships with telcos could be an
organic fit due to their central role in enabling
data consumption and capabilities in user
authentication. A panel discussion will explore
issues that are relevant to both parties in the
streaming ecosystem. The focus will be on
building scalable partnerships, mechanisms
to launch new partnerships by minimizing
cannibalization.
While cloud has offered many opportunities
and more efficient operations, it also has
brought challenges due to threats arising
from cyber-attacks. Media gathers highly
sensitive data such as audience profiles
through interactions. Improved connectivity
and the adoption of automated processes
demand different approaches to cybersecurity to effectively protect against future
cyber risks.
A range of industries use AI and cellular

technologies. In a number of sessions, AI,
cyber-security, Internet of Things (IoT) and
blockchain will be discussed with use cases,
how they can be deployed while serving
society with entertainment, information and
education.
The selection of the right technology and
embracing data science is a key to harness
decision-driven insights for the betterment
of the economy, business and wider society.
The summit aims to highlight the benefits
of AI to society; a session will demystify
and debunk the real art of harnessing
AI. The first day of the summit will also
discuss the relevant on-going challenges of
amalgamation of smart cities, infrastructure
and regulatory issues in driving digitalization,
citizen inclusiveness and sustainability of
future cities.
