Smart Buildings Keynote – Integrating ubiquitous connectivity to smart buildings

Session Abstract: Smart Cities, Smart Buildings and the IoT sector in general rely on the one hand on a robust connectivity and on the other hand on a standardized platform layer to enable the services they wish to provide. Telecommunication carriers are fast on the trail of providing both the high bandwidth, low latency capabilities of 5G, as well as the penetrating capabilities of low power wide area networks (LPWAN), such as LoRaWAN or NarrowBand-IoT. Both levels of capabilities, serve important needs for in-building connectivity. Why there is a need to digitize the buildings and their assets? One of the...

Smart Buildings Session – How Data Centers and Central Offices Co-Exist in the Same Space

Session Abstract The convergence of wireless and wireline will force the different groups to work together. Operating both two different ways won’t work. Being able to support the needs of the traditional central office network and supporting low latency data applications driven by 5G evolution requires different mindsets in the same facility. Operators need to support the “rip and replace” data center mindset while at the same time supporting evolving needs of the incoming outside plant infrastructure for a lifetime. Speaker: Craig Culwell is a market development manager at CommScope, responsible for key Service Provider accounts in North America. The...
