The 2022 5G Summit lineup illustrates the promise and progress of Open Generation’s efforts to accelerate 5G innovation in the U.S.

Two years ago, we hosted the inaugural MITRE Engenuity Open Generation 5G Summit. Now in its third incarnation, we’re thrilled to have become one of the preeminent 5G events in the industry. Our consortium attracts globally recognized experts and that’s reflected in our speakers and panelists. The 2022 5G Summit builds on previous years and once again offers a completely virtual event that, as part of MITRE Engenuity's effort to serve the public interest, is offered at no charge. Spread over two days, we’ll deep-dive into critical and cutting-edge topics ranging from advanced technologies in telecom and evolving performance standards to regulations and our connected world through 5G, including UAS use cases that will create a safer and more convenient world. You don’t have to take my word for it. Check out this lineup and register to save your place among the voices and visionaries that will get us to the 5G future faster:
