Keynote Presentation: Satellite IoT and sustainability

Data from the remote edge is often both the hardest to access and the most valuable to businesses as they seek to optimise sustainable operations. Satellite IoT is increasingly helping businesses bridge these challenges, with industries as diverse as aviation, maritime, logistics, mining and energy all relying on reliable satellite connectivity to reduce carbon emissions, monitor waste products and reduce environmental damage.

In this session, Inmarsat’s Chief Commercial and Digital Officer, Jat Brainch, will discuss findings from recent Inmarsat research highlighting the role of satellite in supporting sustainability, as well as sharing some real-life examples where Inmarsat has helped drive more sustainable business outcomes.

Presentation: Connectivity for Remote IoT Applications Using CBRS Technology

As IoT continues to expand into new vertical industries and applications, technology leaders must build them on connectivity platforms that are secure, reliable, and readily available even in remote sites and facilities where wireless coverage may be challenging.

In considering the available technology and protocols that can meet those objectives, IoT decision-makers in the manufacturing, industrial, agricultural, and utilities sectors are recognizing the value of private LTE or CBRS deployments.

In a presentation by Dr Chang-Gang Zhang, VP of Technology at JACS Solutions, we’ll introduce CBRS and discuss its applicability in several IoT use cases.

The agenda includes:

  • CBRS technology primer
  • Cross-vertical applicability
  • Use cases: equipment monitoring, diagnostic and preventative maintenance, edge computing
  • Deployment models
  • Benefits of CBRS and comparisons vs. Wi-Fi and public cellular
