The International Telecommunication Union and the NGMN Alliance are jointly organizing a conference on “Licensing Practices in 5G Industry Segments” which will take place at the ITU headquarters, Geneva from the 29-30 January 2019.
With special focus on the development of 5G, the “Joint NGMN and ITU Conference on Licensing Practices in 5G Industry Segments” will facilitate sharing and discussing present-day licensing practices and related issues in different industry segments. The Conference will discuss issues that stakeholders may need to be aware of, or to timely address, share licensors’, licensees’ and pool administrators’ requirements on patent pools/platforms, identify proposed practices and conduct for licensors and licensees in a 5G environment and identify requirements for increasing transparency and assessing essentiality of SEPs in 5G, and look at the main key issues to be addressed in the coming years and how to resolve them.
Each session will have time reserved for Q & A and interactive discussions between panelists and the audience.
The event is open to members and non-members of the ITU, and it allows a unique mix of standards bodies, industry players and government representatives from around the world who will exchange ideas and search for possible solutions on this key issue of evolving telecommunication technologies
