Gabriel Brown, Principal Analyst – Mobile Networks and 5G, Heavy Reading

Dr. Yongbin Wei, Sr. Director, Engineering, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.

Private LTE networks already serve a wide range of industrial IoT use cases, such as in the mining, oil and gas, sea ports, manufacturing, and logistics sectors. Now, as 5G is here for smartphones, this webinar will investigate how the advanced capabilities of 5G technology can be applied in these environments and enable the transformation to Industry 4.0.

Among the topics to be covered in this webinar:

  • Spectrum to deploy private 5G networks for industrial IoT, from licensed, unlicensed, shared to regionally dedicated
  • New opportunities for the industrial IoT such as replacing the wired industrial Ethernet and time sensitive networking
  • The role of 5G NR ultra-reliable low-latency communication (URLLC) and Time Sensitive Networks (TSN)
  • How Coordinated Multi-point (CoMP) can be used to meet demanding reliability targets
  • How can co-located networks share the same spectrum with reliability, such as Spatial Division Multiplexing (SDM)
