The Rohde & Schwarz Mobile Network Testing (MNT) Forum will be offered in a hybrid format for its 11th edition, which is scheduled to take place from May 23-24, 2023. Participants can register to attend the event online or come to the Rohde & Schwarz headquarters in Munich, Germany. The long-established event will be an opportunity for industry professionals to engage with important topics in the cellular ecosystem and their test and measurement implications. Discussion points will include maturing 5G networks, quality of experience (QoE) in mobile networks, private networks and other innovations.
Over the course of two days, attendees can expect to see live demonstrations showcasing the latest developments in MNT. The international speaker lineup includes leading mobile network operators, regulators, service providers and infrastructure suppliers. Daniel Strzemieczny from Nokia and Irene Kaggwa Sewankambo from the Uganda Communications Commissions will speak about building a quality network and promoting consumer interests in QoE. Mariusz Mróz and Dariusz Szewczak from Orange, Tom Collins from Citymesh and Sarah Schmitt from Fraunhofer IPT will present on 5G advanced experience, Telecom 4.0 and the infrastructure and projects of 5G-Industry Campus Europe. Operator focus on customer experience and private networks will be covered by Tod Madden from Bell Canada and Frank Meisel from Cocus. Last, but not least, Attila Bársonyi from National Media Infocommunications Authority Hungary and Michal Majewski from Systemics PAB will provide key insights into mobile coverage measurement regulations and advanced throughput analysis. Outside of the scheduled presentations, there will also be plenty of opportunities for networking with fellow professionals and test technology specialists.
The MNT Forum will be available online, both live and later as an on-demand recording. This means that professionals from all over the world can participate in the event and join the conversation.
Anne Stephan, vice president of critical infrastructure and networks, said, “The MNT Forum has always been a valuable platform for industry professionals to share insights, network with peers and stay up-to-date on the latest developments in mobile network testing. We are thrilled to bring it back as an in-person event this year, while also offering an online option for those who are unable to attend in person. This hybrid format will allow us to reach a wider audience and foster meaningful discussions around key topics in the cellular ecosystem.”
