Welcome to the 5G Exchange!

The 5G Exchange, brought to you by Informa Tech and powered by Light Reading, has brought together an unprecedented group of brands, including Light Reading, Heavy Reading, Telecoms.com, Ovum, Tractica, 5G World Event Series, Techxlr8 Event Series, Artificial Intelligence Business (AIB) and TU Automotive to form the newly created 5G community, www.the5gexchange.com.

The 5G Exchange's mission is to provide industry decisions makers, such as global communications service providers, OEMs and enterprise IT executives, with a vetted and approved educational resource repository to inform them of emerging trends and technologies enabled by 5G. Hosted content on The 5G exchange includes:

  • Vetted third-party content (white papers, presentations, etc.)
  • Blogs and opinions
  • Videos
  • Press releases
The 5G Exchange is continually accepting content submissions. To submit your content to the 5G Exchange, click here.

To make this a reality, the 5G Exchange has created the 5G Council, led by Kelsey Ziser, 5G Curator and Senior Editor of Light Reading, alongside 5G Council members.

The 5G Exchange Curator

Kelsey Kusterer Ziser is a senior editor covering SD-WAN deployments at Light Reading. In addition, as curator at the 5G Exchange, Kelsey acts as gatekeeper for all content submitted to Light Reading's authoritative resource of vetted, 5G-related information provided by the industry. She also plays an important role in developing Light Reading's events program.

Kelsey studied journalism and mass communication with a second major of Spanish at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, but her interest in the telecom world started with a PR position at Connect2 Communications. Her drive for communicating the impact of new technology translated into a communications position at the FREEDM Systems Center, a smart grid research lab at NC State University. While at FREEDM, Kelsey orchestrated the center's webinar program, which crossed multiple college campuses and covered research projects like cybersecurity in the smart grid and the center's smart solid-state transformer.

The 5G Council is a "who's who" of 5G industry influencers who oversee and review the 5G Exchange's submitted content, with the goal of delivering premium, vetted content to 5g Exchange readers.
