The Journey to 5G
A path to Excellence Connectivity

As telecommunications companies transform to digital service and content providers, they increasingly leverage the cloud to engage with their customers, enhance their products, optimize their operations, and empower their employees.

With this fifth generation of wireless communication, we will realize the full communication needs for this new paradigm. It’s all about creating networks that are capable of being an agile platform for new applications and new services, while operating this all in a sustainable and cost efficient way.

April 11, 2018


Join us in Brussels on April 11 for a full-day Executive Briefing to explore how Microsoft can help power your digital transformation – the path from vision to execution, from new business models to technology enablers, from on-premise to Cloud, from data-driven business to data privacy laws.

In this invitation-only Executive Briefings, we will also explore the current state of digital transformation in Communications through customer examples, provide technology updates and, together with you, create the opportunity for dialogue amongst industry leaders.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Microsoft EBC in Brussels as we seek to ‘Empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more’!
