5G & IoT: The New Internet of Everything

Turns out, quite a bit! Imagine smart energy applications that can cut power instantly on detection of a local disruption – virtually eliminating blackouts. What about robotic surgery?

And, combining 5G & IoT with other emerging technologies such as AI and blockchain leads to even more astounding capabilities. For example, picture a manufacturing plant that reroutes material flows on the factory floor and reprograms production machines in real time in response to changes in demand for various products at retail – several tiers down the supply chain! 

5G and IoT will deeply disrupt your business and your industry. But it will also enable powerful innovation. Jack shows you how to design your 5G/IoT strategy for a sustainable competitive advantage.
