Day One Applications for Any Enterprise: Surveillance & Monitoring

Each of the players in the enterprise 5G ecosystem has a role in building and delivering services on a private network. HCL’s core is application development, integration, testing, and support services. However, the goal of any network services provider is to minimize the network footprint and maximize the value-added services for the enterprise customer. This session details the applications and services that private 4G/5G networks enable today. IT executives can launch digital transformation initiatives with these applications without sacrificing ROI from a new network architecture.

Building Smart Cities in the Real World: Public Private Partnerships and Private 4G Networks

While headline-grabbing smart city use cases like autonomous cars might get the press and fuel the hype cycles, the real work of building connected metros has been quietly moving forward backstage. Forward-thinking cities across the U.S. have been upgrading their infrastructure, adding high-speed backbone networks, shared wireless infrastructure, and multitenant edge data centers. These initiatives often emerge from public-private partnerships laser-focused on delivering value to the citizenry, including the under-served, and growing the local economy by creating platforms for digital transformation and Industry 4.0. Embracing these infrastructure upgrades comprises a significant new area of opportunity for civic leaders, infrastructure providers, and application developers to design, build, and operate— in a public–private partnership – a next generation smart city infrastructure built to deliver value today but also designed with future needs (including autonomous vehicles) in mind. Join this session to hear about the wireless, edge and Open Grid infrastructure being deployed in Las Vegas and other cities.
