PETALING JAYA: Key industry players from across the globe will be taking part in 5G TECH 2021, an event hosted by CT Event Asia to share ideas and explore the vast capabilities that this technology holds for the future.

It is the first time such an event is taking place in Malaysia, and with an educational approach, as 5G is not just a generational step but also a way to bridge the digital divide between urban cities and rural areas.

With the theme “Digital Economy Recovery Through 5G”, the event which is being held from Nov 30 to Dec 1, 2021 at the JW Marriott Hotel in Kuala Lumpur, will be available both in-person and online.

5G TECH 2021 will bring together key experts across the 5G landscape, including technology, transportation, healthcare, manufacturing, education, telecommunication, financial services, aviation, ports, automation, agriculture, gaming, energy and utility, media and entertainment, and more.

Ishsal held many posts prior to joining FMT, including Group CEO at Pos Malaysia Bhd, chairman of the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC), and trainer and consultant for Airbus Group (France).

Other notable speakers include Technology Park Malaysia Corporation CEO Dzuleira Abu Bakar, Scotland 5G Centre chairman Julie Snell, Microsoft Malaysia national technology officer Dr Dzaharudin Mansor, and Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) CEO Mahadhir Aziz.

Participants can look forward to several interesting topics at 5G TECH 2021, such as the impact of 5G on healthcare, building networks through collaboration, industry trends, monetising 5G, and many more.

Meanwhile, CT Event Asia managing director Bangaly Camara said the aim of the event was to look at issues of importance in the development of the 5G network in the wider region.

“As the world has changed after the Covid-19 pandemic, the dependence on network speed, capacity, and security has never been greater. The 5G phenomenon is seen as not just a generational step, but as a way for society to advance together towards a more connected future,” he said.
