An event to brief Northern Ireland businesses on the benefits of 5G networks will take place next month.

Belfast is set to become one of the UK's first 5G launch cities.

To prepare the way, BT's managing director of research and innovation, Tim Whitley, will address the ICC Belfast Waterfront Hall on May 21.

Professor Whitley is expected to discuss the key radio technologies that will play a major role in the roll out of the next generation of mobile communications networks, while outlining the challenges linked to the deployment of 5G networks.

He will also highlight the benefits for businesses and consumers in a new digital age.

The evening is being organised by the BT Ireland Innovation Centre in partnership with the Institution of Engineering and Technology NI.

Entrance is free for the event which will include a question and answer session.
