Axis Communications will be hosting its fifth technology conference at Dubai’s Expo 2020. As an official partner of the Sweden Pavilion in the Sustainability District at the Expo, Axis has been driving the conversation about leading technologies that are helping us shape a smarter, safer, and more sustainable tomorrow. The fifth conference, titled ‘Share in the discovery of 5G’, will take place on 22 February 2022 and bring together a panel of experts to discuss the unique challenges and opportunities of 5G adoption for enterprises.
The conference will be opened by Ettiene van der Watt, Regional Director – Middle East & Africa at Axis. Insightful discussions on topics ranging from smart buildings, smart cities, urban mobility, manufacturing, and the impact of 5G on personal and professional lives will formulate the flow of the event. These include a focus on 5G-enabled smart buildings with enhanced safety and security presented by Marie Helene Mansard, Director of Business Development – Axis Communications APAC, and 5G’s unique factors beyond unprecedented bandwidth speeds, presented by Vishnu Bhan, Senior Director at Singtel.
Axis will also be sharing its success stories of use cases for 5G, such as Ericsson and Singtel’s multi-edge computing network, SoftBank’s self-driving bus, and General Motors’ car servicing monitoring system. As the fifth and latest generation of wireless technologies, 5G is capable of handling more connected devices with lower latency, has more robust security, and offers improved network capabilities. For example, 5G network slicing can prioritise specific users, services, or devices when a network is congested.
“By 2025, 5G networks are likely to cover one-third of the world’s population. While 3G and 4G LTE have primarily served the private subscriber, 5G will enable enterprises and governments to connect IoT devices at greater scale and improve decision-making with real-time data aggregation and analysis,” explained van der Watt. “By collaborating with ICT companies and having a dialogue with our partners and customers, we’re exploring many different areas to see how 5G can complement our network video solutions. Our open architecture approach to technology development is helping with this journey, enabling easier integration into new and existing systems as 5G adoption rises.”
