His area of expertise lies in identifying key enterprise vertical requirements, mapping them to 5G capabilities, and, in turn, identifying what the future use cases and potential new business opportunities will be for the new generation. Leo is in regular exchange with different enterprise verticals and associations like the 5G Alliance for Connected Industries and Automation (5G-ACIA) and the 5G Automotive Association (5GAA). He is also involved in calculating the economic value of 5G across different verticals and its contribution to global Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
