Agenda

The New IoT Battleground: Low-Power, Wide-Area Networks
February 27, 2017 | 12:30- 14:00
Emerging low-power, wide-area networks (LPWAN) promise to decrease costs and improve coverage in the IoT space, and a wide range of players are racing to jump into the market.

Indeed, companies working in this area range from startups to utility providers to city governments to industry consortia to wireless network operators, both small and big. Technology options also span the gamut, from LoRa to EC-GSM to LTE’s NB-IoT to Wi-Fi HaLow and the list goes on.

But the connecting tissue among all these options is that they’re generally more broadly available and cheaper than standard, LTE-powered M2M services. In fact, service and device costs can be as low as a few dollars – or cents – per month for IoT customers. IoT proponents point to these developments as a major milestone in the market. As this low-cost, low-power, wide-area wireless sector matures, it will naturally draw in far more customers – and create far more business opportunities – than the space has seen to date.

So how should players in this space move forward? Which technologies and players in this crowded market will rise to the surface, and which will drown? And perhaps most importantly, what market sectors – from healthcare to government to industrial – stand as the biggest opportunity?

This Fierce luncheon will dive into these issues and more with a no-holds-barred discussion among top industry executives and experts.

5G Evolution: Transitioning from Fixed to Mobile
February 28, 2017 | 12:30 - 14:00
With network operators hoping to score a leg up on competitors and vendors hoping to reignite equipment sales, the wireless industry is rushing headlong into a 5G future. Indeed, the push is such that some top operators are planning to launch commercial 5G services years in advance of a final, complete and official standard for the technology. However, many of these early implementations of 5G promise to offer fixed access only – the mobile component of 5G may not become commercially available until the turn of the next decade. These fixed applications could provide operators with the chance to extend gigabyte-speed internet services directly into users’ homes without the need to laying expensive cabling.

Nonetheless, these fixed 5G applications will likely stand as a precursor to true, mobile 5G services. Such services promise to allow wireless users the same flexibility in services they receive today, expect with speeds that were unimaginable just a few years ago.

But questions remain: How will early-mover operators move from a fixed to a mobile 5G scenario? How will standards evolve to support both of these 5G applications? And what business challenges might carriers on both sides – those that wait for standards and those that deploy ahead of those specifications – face as a result of their decisions?

This Fierce luncheon will delve into these questions and more with a no-holds-barred panel of top industry executives and experts!

V2X: Wireless and the Future of Transportation
March 1, 2017 | 12:30-14:00

The autonomous car continues to receive a substantial amount of interest from automakers, technology companies, regulators and others. After all, the notion that a computer could take on the laborious task of getting a motorist through a congested commute to work in the morning is a powerful selling point. And to be clear, the technology that must be brought to bear to achieve a self-driving car is substantial, to say the least. 

However, the vehicle-to-everything (V2X) space carries far more opportunities than simply getting workers through their morning commute. Indeed, V2X communications stretch across connections between vehicles and any other object or entity, be it infrastructure, devices, grids or other vehicles.

For example, shipping companies could reshape their entire business with autonomous trucking options. Cities could redesign their roads and grids to effectively shuttle residents through autonomous transport systems. And on-demand transport services like Uber and Lyft could well enable an eventual transition away from personal automobiles entirely.

And wireless companies, from carriers to vendors to others, could potentially play a driving role in the transportation sector of tomorrow. Already, players from across the wireless industry are working on services and platforms to enable the pieces that would have to be eventually connected to create a V2X environment.

Of course, there are a wide range of challenges arrayed against this space. Legislators, regulators and others would have to be brought on board. Disparate platforms from competing vendors would need to be aligned. And the networks of tomorrow would need to be able to handle the transportation system of tomorrow.

This Fierce event will jump into these issues and more with a no-holds-barred panel of top industry executives and experts.
