Re: Wrong and twice wrong!
New 3GPP capabilties post Release 15 will be considered "5G", even if they're based on LTE originally. For example, NB-IoT will probably be pitched as part of 5G by the 3GPP in its submission to ITU-R. Things like low-latency LTE may also be considered as 5G

This is, at first glance, an odd choice and a bit strange (not boring!). But in deployment you're looking an integrated 4G/5G architecture, so it kind of makes sense.

Re: Wrong and twice wrong!
Yes, mmWave is interesting in many ways.

But NR technology, and its commercial applications, in mid- and low-band is also interesting. For instance, to support ultra-reliable low-latency communications (URLLC) or connection-less operation for massive IoT 

Not boring!
Duh!

Re: Wrong and twice wrong!
The fascinating and commercially interesting stuff is mm-wave band radios. I hope that we will learn more details about field trial results from the operators and vendors.

Re: Wrong and twice wrong!
Well, LTE networks are still going to be run for consumer services for decades. 5G IoT isn't here yet, hasn't been fully defined, let alone commercialized. So I'd say LTE has a role for the foreseeable future.

On the bright side, even if the MWC show floor is a bit ho-hum, the protests outside the hall should provide some excitement.

Re: Wrong and twice wrong!
This topic is worth of a blog in itself because it surely raises big questions about the longevity of those pre-5G technologies.

Not in the volume that massive IoT is supposed to deliver, nope, and IoT has to be a volumes game in order to deliver revenues to operators.

You're right. Big corporations are never cynical.

Re: Wrong and twice wrong!
Won't LTE-M and NB-IoT do the IoT stuff, then?

Don't blame service providers if users exercise their prerogative to mindlessly "upgrade" to the next big thing to feel better about themselves. It's a strategy that has worked wonders for Apple.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
