City 5G Connectivity Strategies

Tuesday, 15 November 2022

09:30 - 11:30 CET

Room 1.1 - CC1, Smart City Expo, Gran Via



Private networks are delivering fast, secure, and efficient connectivity across private and public sectors. The UK is leading the way in this field, with cities emerging as strong drivers of demand and with special focus on stadium and entertainment, and ports.

The focus of this two hour workshop is to discuss the role of neutral host companies in delivering networks with private networking capabilities, including how to integrate private networks into the public network as well as further discussing the system integrator capability.

The workshop opens with keynotes from Jose Antonio Aranda, Cellnex, talking to advances in private networks in cities; and Dritan Kaleshi from Digital Catapult discussing the supply side and introducing UK Telecoms Innovation Network.

Followed by two panels, with speakers from Small Cell Forum, BT Northern Ireland, Belfast Harbour, VMO2/Telefonica, Cellnex, Real Wireless, i2cat, Westminster City Council, Unmanned Life and Attocore.

Panel 1 - Ports: efficient operational connected places

Seaports and airports are switching onto the benefits of deploying quality reliable networks for IoT and broadband applications, and cities are able to benefit from this innovation.

Panel 2 -  City venues and stadiums: experience and managing mass participation

Venues and stadiums are a challenging environment to get the connectivity right. However, once achieved the opportunity for engagement of event attendees in and around the venue and efficient management of venue support staff can create a hotspot of innovation in the city.

Note that this session will take place within Smart Cities Expo. You will need an entrance pass to the Expo in order to attend. For any questions, please contact
