5G Future Forum Opens Call for New Members

The 5G Future Forum, the global industry group focused on driving standards and adoption of 5G and Mobile Edge Computing, today announced a call for new members.

5G and Mobile Edge Computing deliver low latency networks to mobile and connected devices while improving data throughput, reliability, power efficiency and security. This technology makes a range of transformative use-cases possible including machine learning at the edge, autonomous industrial equipment, smart cities, Internet of Things (IoT) and augmented/virtual reality.

“Rogers is proud to be a founding member of the 5G Future Forum and we are dedicated to helping accelerate the delivery of 5G and MEC at a global scale,” said Jorge Fernandes, Chief Technology Officer at Rogers Communications. “As we continue to lead the roll out of this next generation technology across Canada, we remain focused on building our robust 5G ecosystem with strategic investments, cutting edge technology and world-class alliances such as the 5G Future Forum. We look forward to welcoming new members to the Forum who will provide additional perspectives and best-practices on the optimal strategies for successfully deploying 5G and MEC.”

The 5G Future Forum was established in January 2020 by América Móvil, KT Corp., Rogers, Telstra, Verizon, and Vodafone. The application period for new members begins on April 1, 2021 and closes on April 20, 2021.
