28/03/17 CWIC Starter: LPWAN & IoT - Cambridge
Today, LPWAN is a plethora of acronyms and obscure technical debate. This LPWAN CWIC-Starter event strips that away, explaining the different options and concentrating on how they will affect your business, both in terms of efficiency and potential disruption. It also looks at the effect of the potential tsunami of data they can produce and demonstrates how that can be utilised to shape new business models.
30/03/17 CWIC Starter: Healthcare - Cambridge
Healthcare is a growing market that is moving away from the traditional manufacturers’ and is seeing a wealth of innovation from young entrepreneurs and SME’s.

06/04/17 ‘How the crime business grew out of recession’ Security SIG event - Cambridge
National statistics show a fall in surveyed crime to a third of the peak value over 20 years. Under this recessionary pressure criminal businesses have reacted with a strategy of consolidation and innovation. Leveraging early stage investments from international governments, cyber-attack has returned the crime industry to growth. Regulators, police and commercial companies have yet to mount an effective defence to this disruptive approach. In a half-day conference we will show clear opportunities for new business and good governance that emerge from a strategic understanding of crime as a service. Confirmed speakers include Dave Palmer of Darktrace

09/05/17 'State of the Nation - Use cases for Public Safety' Mobile Broadband Event - Cambridge
Commercial cellular networks have been driven by the needs of consumer and business users. The exceptional success of cellular has led to excellent economies of scale and constant rapid innovation. This environment has produced advanced standards such as LTE that provide multi-megabit per second data rates and multimedia capabilities, as well as traditional voice and messaging services. As mobile networks evolve to include promises such as network slicing, how will the networks adapt to dedicated services for critical applications such as connected car and public safety? Speakers include Peter Hodson of Sepura PLC and Nils Lofmark of Mason Advisory.
18/05/17 Digital Delivery and Content SIG 'Broadcasting New Media - is 5G a solution or a diversion?'
The broadcast industry’s business models and the way we consume content are evolving rapidly. Key developments include the availability to consumers of high quality mobile devices and TV screens, the evolution of video standards (migration to HD and the emergence of UHD 4K), the proliferation of internet protocol (IP), over-the-top (OTT) TV services and more recently the debut of the ‘IP Studio’ in production. These factors all create significant additional traffic and service requirements that could have serious implications for the satisfactory working of all types of fixed and mobile networks.
