Pass Type: All Access

Track: IoT, Smart-X and AI

Format: Panel Session

Vault Recording: TBD

The panel will describe how licensed radio systems provide increased security, freedom from RF interference and support for high-performance and low cost standardized technologies. The panel will discuss leading applications for wireless IoT and advantages and disadvantages of the relevant frequencies for IoT applications.

As cities continue to add wireless monitoring and control to various devices to make daily life safer and more efficient for residents and workers, private networks are supporting an increasing number of applications. Newer technologies – including those originally developed for 4G and 5G commercial cellular networks – are now being implemented for IoT and smart city applications. Narrowband IoT "NB-IoT" is one such technology which has been designed to support vast numbers of remote devices. As these remote sensing and control devices, and the networks that support them, expand, they can reduce operating expenses, make cities safer and reduce greenhouse gasses. Examples applications include smart street lights, gunshot detection and location systems, and Greenhouse Gases (GHG) monitoring.
