China Mobile will demonstrate a number of interactive 5G experiences at MWC19 Shanghai.
A live example of 5G-enabled tele-mentored surgery will be performed over a 5G connection supported by China Mobile. The surgery will be carried out during the 5G Summit on Friday, 28 June at SNIEC. Dr. Antonio de Lacy, Head of the Gastrointestinal Surgery Service at Hospital Clinic of Barcelona, will provide live guidance from the auditorium at SNIEC to the operating room in Shanghai East Hospital, with the full consent of the patient.
Attendees will be able to explore activities such as traditional Chinese dance and calligraphy in an 8K theatre in full-scale ultra-HD; enjoy an interstellar journey in the “Innovation Planet” and enter a virtual reality sports arena and experience a holographic basketball training camp and much more.
All seven exhibition halls at MWC19 Shanghai will be covered by live 5G networks supported by the three principle Chinese operators and their partners. A number of the exhibitors will perform 5G-enabled demonstrations and activities at the event including AsiaInfo, Ericsson, Gosuncn, H3C, Huawei, Lenovo, Qualcomm, Rohde & Schwarz, Si-Tech, Spirent, Viavi, among others.
“This promises to be the most exciting MWC Shanghai ever as 5G becomes a reality. Under the theme of ‘Intelligent Connectivity’, 5G will be prominent all across MWC19 Shanghai and it will be exciting to see a glimpse of that new world,” said John Hoffman, CEO, GSMA.
“Along with event favourites such as the Innovation City and 4YFN, attendees will get to experience the impact of Intelligent Connectivity first hand, across the conference and exhibition and the many programmes and events taking place. We look forward to enjoying the many new amazing experiences at MWC19 Shanghai,” added Hoffman.
