Announcing the 5GRL Deputy Chair: Marco Hofmann from Swisscom

The 5G Roaming Lab (5GRL) is pleased to announce its Deputy Chair Marco Hofmann, Senior Roaming Manager at Swisscom. This lab features discussions on Service Level Agreements, Networks Slices, Quality, IOT Negotiations and is a sounding board for ideas, innovative ways to get 5G Roaming working and investigate the new revenue streams it can bring.

“I like to connect with peers, who have similar challenges, learn from each other and design innovative solutions. To align and guide our industry forward we need smart concepts, which can be adapted by most operators in a short time. They are best when:

1.) focused on our customers

2.) defined in close collaboration

3.) designed as simple as possible.

By sharing knowledge and discussing open questions everyone can contribute to this process.”
