Enterprise Connectivity: Opening Presentation
Chair’s Opening Remarks Day 2
Presentation: Connecting Communities – Smart Environments through IoT Networks
- As the core of smart stadiums, cities and environments successes are based off of connectivity, which solution/s from the wide-array of options available will be integral to future success?
- What other disruptive technologies can enable these connected spaces?
- A look at the pro’s and con’s of these and industry use-cases.
Presentation: Keep Calm & Carry On – Real-time Monitoring Enabling Optimum Response
- How do you deploy this level of connectivity in a legacy infrastructure?
- What barriers arise when monitoring assets?
- Industry examples of monitoring and response in action.
Panel: Covering the Range – Connectivity Considerations of the IoT
- What is the best connectivity option for your product?
- Discussions around range vs. data rate vs. power consumption for these IoT connectivity technologies.
- The necessary steps that need to be taken to help secure and scale networks – is this where Mobile Private Networks step-in?
- How to adopt key connectivity and security solutions into your pre-existing infrastructure.
Presentation: Standardisation, the Key to Success
- What current regulation and certification is in place across the IoT eco-system?
- As there are varying views of standardised, how do we reach a unanimous account of what is correct? Does this need to be an industry-by-industry definition?
- Creating pragmatic expectations and how to ensure you are following protocol in such a rapidly evolving landscape.
Presentation: eSIM Technology as an Enabler for IoT Connectivity
- Are eSIMs really that revolutionary? The pros and cons discussed.
- Why cellular connectivity (SIM or eSIM) enables more value.
- The reality of IoT solutions: a customer’s perspective.
Panel: Keeping It Connected – Mobile Networks Role in Smart Manufacturing & Automotive Acceleration
- What role MNOS’s play in the success of industries including, Industry 4.0 to Industry X.0 and autonomous vehicles.
- Will mobile private networks, 5G and WiFi 6 accelerate digital transformation and will this see an increase in the rise of enterprises licencing chunks of networks rather than buying?
- More sensors means more connectivity and a higher chance of cyber-attacks, what solutions are there to help keep factories, machines, autonomous vehicles and other smart devices safe?
- What barriers need to be overcome to enable progression in these spaces?
Presentation: The Evolving Faces of IoT Connectivity
- The current state of the IoT connectivity landscape – LPWAN, eSIM, LTE, 5G and how satellites are not equipped to support these advancements.
- Are these enough for what industries need and is 5G just a hype?
- How connectivity solutions need to evolve to cope with demand, while maintaining security and scalability.
- A use-case of IoT connectivity for industries.
Presentation: 5G and IoT Evolution
- Network predictions are estimated to bring $2.2tn to the global economy, what does this mean for the IoT?
- The influence of 5G on the IoT landscape.
- Where do we evolver from here?
Presentation: Connectivity the Wireless Dots – Mapping the Way for Future IoT Connectivity
- Discussing the structure and standards for network connectivity needed across industries.
- How do we map the way for IoT connectivity and other network solutions?
- Is building partnerships with network providers the key to success?
- Barriers affecting this evolution.
Panel: Future Progressions – A look at the IoT Connectivity space
- How has 5G disrupted and evolved the connectivity of IoT devices?
- What will be the next disruption in the IoT connectivity landscape? WiFi 6?
- The IoT has come a long way in the last 10 years, what are the predictions for the next 10 years?
