About the talk
There has been a significant amount of hype around 5G and how it can potentially be leveraged for IoT solutions. The purpose of this session it to provide an overview of the evolution to 5G connectivity and discuss different examples of how the technology is being used in IoT solutions. As we experienced in the evolution of many of the “Gs” (1G, 2G, 3G, 4G and now 5G), there is a level of speed and mobile capability that will impact both the consumer and enterprise levels. However, much of the true value is hard to predict until the market and developers have the ability leverage the advances in speed and capabilities. For example, many of the values we currently leverage and probably believe we can’t live without in the 4G era were unknown as the technology was being rolled out. In specific regard to leveraging 5G in the IoT world, there will be value for the consumer; however, this is one evolution that will impact how businesses operate. These changes range anywhere from the ability to wirelessly connect massive numbers of IoT devices, address critical business operations and provide alternatives for point to point connectivity. At the end of this session, the audience will have a better understanding of how 5G could impact their models and drive a stronger ecosystem to be catalysts in the delivery of full end to end commercialized solutions.

Okay. Thanks, Kevin. Appreciate it. I don't know that people are dropping from other sessions and joining the session. So I'll do a little bit of an introduction here before I leave for the United to the meet of what I wanted to discuss today, but I appreciate you joining this afternoon evening daytime where we are in the world. My name is Wayne Irwin and I'm the vice president of operations for the emerging business customer unit at Erickson here in North America. And if you think about the general types of
customers and hope generals type of the business. Erickson does generally work with the large mobile network operators and all the mobile network operators AT&T Verizon go to phone things by those lines. The emerging business you and it is really outside of our traditional business units are customary and looking at the trends that are going on in the market trying to send what's going on in the market and in building out a level of solutions that with an ecosystem that weekend work back through our
mobile network operators to allow them to be more robust and have more capabilities in the market. So I like to look at it as they know we're going to be a catalyst for our traditional network operators and I'm looking beyond that as well. So looking at the enterprise side and how that assists the network operators as well. So today, I know you're talking about 5G. I want everybody to look at by G & M and how do we get to be beyond the hype there's a lot of activity going on a lot of things going on in the market today that I want to just make
