On Tuesday, October 26th, Verizon Senior Vice President John Nitti and Vice President Janine Grasso gathered members of the 5G Future Forum for a panel event entitled “Accelerating 5G Solutions through Global Carrier Collaboration” to kick off Mobile World Congress. John Nitti launched the event with welcome remarks and a video from 5G Future Forum Members who were unable to join the panel in person. Janine then moderated a discussion with Vodafone’s Mark Allinson, Rogers’s Luciano Ramos, and Google’s Sunay Tripathi.

In January 2020, Verizon joined with America Movil, KT Corp., Rogers, Telstra, and Vodafone to create the 5G Future Forum (5GFF) to accelerate the development, deployment, and adoption of a globally interoperable 5G MEC ecosystem.

The discussion covered how global collaboration between carriers and ecosystem partners can help speed up the delivery of globally interoperable 5G MEC solutions.

The panelists also shared a peek behind the scenes related to the topics that 5GFF has been working on in its technical and commercial workstreams.
