5G IN ACTION: BROADCASTING SPORTS & LIVE EVENTS

Where has 5G been used to broadcast sports & other live events?

Using 5G network slicing and 5G enabled cameras, they were able to deliver reliable, high-value streaming coverage of the football match, with unique camera angles, which is arguably the key to unlocking huge television revenues.
