Wirelessly Connecting Everyone & Everything, Everywhere
June 1, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Smartphones, sensors, and a wide array of computing technologies and devices are now pervasive in our personal and professional lives, but connectivity among these devices and to online resources in distance data centers has almost been taken for granted. However, the COVID-19 pandemic created a new culture of work-from-home/anywhere, and new requirements for remote learning/teaching (and most everything else). We became acutely aware of our dependence on connectivity, weaknesses in performance and reliability, and gaps affecting those without access. Now, as we emerge from the pandemic with a renewed appreciation for reliable, performant connectivity for everyone, we are also witnessing the emergence of new wireless communications technologies—5G, WiFi 6, satellite-based networks, and more–that promise to help address limitations in performance, availability to all devices, weaknesses in coverage, and gaps in access. Join us for this comprehensive look at connectivity as the fourth utility and how these new technologies can wirelessly connect everyone and everything (computers, sensors, devices, instruments, etc.), everywhere, as we build more connected homes, schools, buildings, mobility, cities, and more.
