Keynote Speaker

5G and Digital Transformation
Dr. Pheeradej Na Nan

Board Committee of Ph.D. Program, Information Technology Management (ITM), Faculty of Engineering, Mahidol University
Nowadays, digital transformation reshapes our life and the customer journey in every industry. The fifth generation (5G) mobile network is about to accelerate this digital transformation.

Innovative digital services will require great demand from the next generation mobile network. To meet this demand, 5G use cases are generally classified into three categories: enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB) supporting extremely-high resolution video that beyond the current connection speed; massive machine type communication (mMTC) which will be required in connecting low speed with massive number of the Internet of Things (IoTs); and finally ultra-reliable low latency communication (URLLC) for efficient facilitation of latency-sensitive applications (such as autonomous vehicles, remote surgery, public safety and manufacturing robot).

5G is able to bring forth a unique network that can deliver all these varied requirements. This necessity is changing network architecture and allows for cooperation with advanced network paradigms such as network slicing, control-and-user plane separation, edge computing and virtualization of radio and core elements. With the introduction of a multitude of new complexities, many network elements that need to work together can do so with the aid of 5G technology.

Digital native enterprise is an organization that’s capable of developing its operations and business innovation at a faster rate than a traditional enterprise is capable of. As the future of business landscape continues to change, it will be essential for organizations to transform into a digital native enterprise by using platform technologies and streamlining their business processes to become an excellent digital enterprise in this coming 5G era.

In this keynote session, we will have a discussion about opportunities and challenges for an enterprise to digitally transform their business through 5G technology. If an organization delays its digital transformation, the business opportunity might be lost.
