The second edition of the congress, which brings together representatives of organizations and companies in the sector, has as its main theme connectivity and innovation to 5G networks that are already present in several countries of the region, therefore, it will be known how this service is going to be integrated to citizens and to which industries.
According to the Mediatek representative, the purpose of the congress is not to present technological products from the manufacturing companies invited as Xiaomi or Motorolabut “the intention is to discuss how technological development will advance in the region and how these new technologies will be used.”
In addition to the companies dedicated to the development of technology, the event will be attended by officials from national governments such as Mexico and Chile.
Alexander Rojas indicated that the dialogue of the event will be aimed at three relevant topics in which technology can be applied as an important tool: smart home, industry and connectivity.
“It will be important for people dedicated to companies and governments because they will talk about interesting advances that they can take to their countries… The talks will be very clear so that people can understand them without having extensive knowledge of technology-related issues,” said the spokesperson to TechMarkup.
On the other hand, for Alexander Rojas, this meeting aims for the public to understand the importance of 5G and how it can benefit. “The idea is that people who join know where they can see connectivity in the future and how they can take advantage of it in their daily lives.”
