DAS: Middleprise 2.0

As commercial building owners want to see the ROI on their installations, a video case study that involves all actors in the DAS process for the Middleprise will benefit the DAS and real estate development sectors.  This real word case study will walk us thorough an active and successful commercial middleprise installation of DAS.


Optimizing Indoor Connectivity: What's the Solution?

Delivering seamless connectivity on private property is complex. The issues are around finding easier ways for privately owned networks to be built and then interconnected with carriers' macro networks. We will discuss the best options as well as the challenges for indoor connectivity and how industry will provide users the fastest speeds available, whether on LTE spectrum, CBRS mid-band or the 5G millimeter wave spectrum. Or, with carrier aggregation, it may be a combination of all three.

Challenges for 5G mmWave, for Indoor Connectivity

Delivering indoor 5G mmWave connectivity on private property is complex. The issues are around finding easier ways for privately owned networks to be built and then interconnected with carriers' macro networks. There are also limited number of indoor, mmWave/5G Installers.  We will discuss the challenges for 5G mmWave, for indoor connectivity.

City Surveillance, More Than Just Video

IP-based video surveillance across cities and surrounding localities have provided public safety officials and various civil agencies with valuable eyes and ears within the cities they serve, but as cities’ transition to fully-IP based video surveillance systems nears completion, municipal governments are now seeking ways to further leverage their IP-based surveillance networks. Article intelligence via surveillance networks capable of deep learning, IoT backhaul networks, and the delivery and storage of increasing volumes of video captured via new platforms, such as body-worn cameras, are opportunities and challenges city public safety officials, agencies, and IT departments face as they seek to leverage their municipal IP-networks. 

This panel will discuss the opportunities for cities to further leverage their existing IP-video surveillance networks and the challenges associated increasing data traffic volumes as more edge-based cameras and sensors are deployed across cities. 


IoT Data Brokerages: The Cornerstone to Data Monetization

 It’s estimated that globally only 33% of cities have a data strategy in place, yet nearly every city is seeking to become a smart city. The hype around smart cities is driven by many factors, and each city’s smart city ambitions are driven by each city’s own unique needs, ranging from economic development, easing clogged transportation networks, to the conservation of scare resources, such as water. However, approaching smart city deployments from a siloed, application-specific approach can lead to pitfalls, especially as cities recognize the benefits of technology and seek to expand into new and adjacent smart city applications. 

For this reason, governments seeking to create smart smart city deployments need to take a platform approach, to include common infrastructure that will support a myriad of smart city applications, but also a platform approach to data, recognizing that not just siloed infrastructure, but siloed data can hamstring even the best smart city deployments. 

This panel will address the role of IoT data brokerages for cities, which provide an interoperable platform approach that allows cities to consolidate, expose, and monetize data – regardless of application or data type. By leveraging data brokerages, cities can not only leverage the full potential of their smart city investments, but can also leverage data derived from the private- sector, end-users, and foster the creation of third-party applications that produce value-added services and collaborations. 

 Accelerating Multi-VNF Services by Deploying MANO in the highly competitive B2B market

 As enterprise customers want faster deployment times and on-demand services that are customizable, using a network-as-a-service solution to drive virtualization initiatives allows service providers to enter new markets and offer new services with best-of-breed VNFs. So how can you reduce service management costs and improve customer experience by automating hybrid (physical and virtual) operations? And how do you use a digital marketplace for end customers and manage requests in real time? 

On this NMG executive speaking panel we welcome industry leaders who have a solution for centralized, automated license management for VNFs and third-party services, to reduce costs and simplify operations.
