It’s with great pleasure that the 5G Roaming Lab welcomes Marco Hofmann, Senior Roaming Manager at Swisscom, as the new 5GRL Chair. After a period as Deputy Chair, Marco takes over as the new Chair to ensure that the 5G Roaming Lab objectives and KPIs are developed according to the work plan.
“I like to connect with peers, who have similar challenges, learn from each other and design innovative solutions. To guide our industry forward we need smart digital concepts, which can be implemented and extended in a short time. They are best when:
1.) focused on our customers
2.) defined in close collaboration
3.) designed as digital and simple as possible.
By sharing knowledge and discussing open questions I encourage everyone to contribute to this process.”
