Title: 5G for Smart Everything: From Smart Meters to the New Power Grid. What is needed to get there ?
Speaker: Akshay Sharma, Executive Research Fellow, neXtCurve: www.next-curve.com
Date/Time: Tuesday, November 12, 2019, from 2 – 3 pm.
Abstract: This talk discusses how 5G with Edge Computing, and Ultra-low latency (sub-5ms) with Gigabit speed bandwidth will be a game changer with Smart Meters and a new Electric Grid can be enabled with Smart Lamposts. As we transition to DevOps, AIOps, newer Closed Loop Automation systems will occur. As we connect AI-powered Virtual Personal Assistants to IoT devices in the home, now we have to imagine the entire macro-infrastructures being all hyper-connected. What is needed to get there will be discussed at the seminar.
