VIDEO: Pieces of 5G puzzle are coming together, says Orange’s Jégo-Laveissière


Orange’s Head of Innovation, Marketing & Technologies, claimed that “pieces of the puzzle” are coming together on 5G in an exclusive Mobile Europe interview at Mobile World Congress 2017.

Mari-Noëlle Jégo-Laveissière discussed some of the major areas of 5G that Orange is testing, including low latency and service quality, to serve some of the applications of the future.

“Autonomous vehicles will not be there fully without 5G,” the exec said.

Asked whether she feels the technology is over-hyped, Jégo-Laveissière said that excitement over the technology was being driven by the possibilities of 5G becoming apparent.

“We know now what 5G will be and we see the first trial, and we dream,” she said.
