5G and IoT: Tomorrow’s World, Today

In the world of mobile communications and the device connectivity, a revolutionary time is coming. Long defined visions from the movies and aspirations of designers will become a reality within the next few years. Together with 5G, the Internet of Things (IoT) is another revolutionary approach to synchronize everything and everyone.

Advancements in transportation, with futuristic concepts such as autonomous (self-driving) vehicles, require safer and more effective communications. All of these communications need to be secure from any attempts to compromise them; hence, Cybersecurity is also increasingly a key concern.

These seminars give an insight into the latest developments in 5G, Internet Of Things (IoT), V2X and Cybersecurity

The event is free of charge; however confirmation of your attendance is required. Kindly register online before 20th November 2018.
