5G is poised to be the first generation of mobility to have a bigger impact on businesses than it does consumers with partners playing a key role in adoption by helping customers understand use cases for the technology. Leaders of service and solution providers can also expand their businesses by becoming experts not only in mobility, but IoT, infrastructure, apps, security and related technologies. Their expertise in specific verticals–and simply understanding their customers’ businesses–will prove to be invaluable. But a slower-than-anticipated rollout of 5G and some of the challenges around it have some questioning just how urgent it is for the channel to get on board. Join Craig Galbraith, executive editor of Channel Partners and Channel Futures, for this debate featuring a panel of experts who will tackle the pressing issues of the day. Find out whether the time for 5G in the channel is now or sometime in the future.

Key takeaways:

• Key skills needed to sell 5G technology
• Where the best 5G opportunities are for partners right now
• How to communicate the 5G opportunity to customers
