What is the industry saying?
Why are the technologies at SCWS and LPWA World important?
This technology is important because global mobile data usage is forecast to double between now and 2020. Not only do citizens demand seamless connectivity, but city services are using an increasing amount of data. 5G small cells will give citizens ultra-fast connectivity, while allowing services for security, traffic management, lighting and utilities to run efficiently. Accessing, analysing and commercialising the data generated from enhanced mobile connectivity is also a potential revenue stream for cities and municipalities. By being able to offer greater connectivity and the applications this enables, cities are in a stronger position to attract local business to the area, strengthening the retail and commercial opportunities in the area.
There is a growing link between the value of a city and connectivity within it; LPWAN/IoT Networks can be used alone or as a complement to other technologies for a number of applications; from parking and waste management to smart metering and lighting. As more and more connected products and services are utilised in a city, IoT Networks are the glue that will hold them together.
Cities are in a unique position to partner and collaborate with a wide range of infrastructure and end user stakeholders to test and deploy new connectivity technologies.
Benefits of attending
