The business potential of 5G in the energy vertical is expected to be very high through the support of critical machine type communication (MTC) applications of energy grid protection and control and the massive volume of MTC type applications coming from smart metering.
The performance and flexibility promised by 5G will enable a communication infrastructure capable of supporting many use cases for 2020 and beyond, from distributed generation to storage of power and micro-grids.
Realising the full potential for the energy vertical will require many challenges and changes within the industry, including critical concerns like trust, control and liability, as well as a favourable policy and regulatory environment.
To better understand the opportunities and the challenges of 5G, Global5G.org is hosting a webinar on 28 June 2018 co-organised by IDC and Trust-IT: 5G: What will it change for the Energy industry?
The webinar is a unique opportunity to discuss the needs and benefits expected by utilities that decide to implement an evolved Digital Transformation strategy. In particular, we will be talking about:
