09/05/17 'State of the Nation - Use cases for Public Safety' Mobile Broadband SIG 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 Hudson of Sepura PLC, Nils Lofmark of Mason Advisory, Markus Hochenbleicher of PA Consulting and Dr Nigel Brown of Cabinet Office. With additional panellist Nick Koiza of Plextek
11/05/17 Artificial Intelligence & Mobility– the business implications
Artificial Intelligence (AI), or cognitive computing, is changing the world – so we are told. The level of media interest has never been higher. Widespread and radical transformation of society, jobs, and all aspects of business are almost de rigour in any forecast. Many smaller 'AI' businesses have scaled rapidly or been swallowed up through acquisition, large corporates are investing heavily in AI research. Cambridge is a hot bed of innovation in AI. But within society generally, and even within the engineering community, the understanding of AI technologies can be low – not helped by the 'buzz word bingo' now associated with the topic.

13/06/17 'Broadcasting New Media - is 5G a solution or a diversion?' Digital Delivery and Content SIG event - London
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. Speakers include Will Saunders of BBC Studios.
