5G and IOT Go Live Webinar

Cities are home to more than half of the world’s population, and they are expected to add another 2.5 billion residents by 2050.

They also face greater environmental pressures and infrastructure needs – and increased pressure from residents to deliver a better quality of life at a sustainable cost.

Cutting-edge technologies are poised to enable cities to meet these challenges, and they are already paving the way for the next wave of public investment.

The 5G revolution will accelerate innovation across many industries and provide a platform for new emerging technologies such as IoT to play an increasingly integral part of our everyday lives.

How will 5G and IoT usher in a new era of smart city development? Listen to our experts discuss this topic in a live webinar that took place on August 20th.

In this live webinar we discuss:

  • Smart city development trends in Asia-Pacific in the 5G era
  • Building smart cities with 5G elements: challenges and pathways
  • How technologies such as 5G networks, IoT, cloud, and big data analytics are being experimented on and implemented in cities across Asia-Pacific
  • The role of telco operators in the new era of smart cities: moving beyond offering efficient network infrastructures to developing smart applications and ecosystems that foster co-development, co-governance and co-existence

Watch the replay of this exciting live webinar hosted by Capgemini’s Applied Innovation Exchange in Singapore as we brought four great minds and leaders together to share their experiences and predictions on how 5G and IoT will usher in a new era for smart cities.
