5G on the Radar at Comms Connect in March

Source: Westwick-Farrow Pty Ltd

The 2022 Comms Connect Melbourne conference program will deliver information and insight into the possibilities and opportunities that 5G technology will bring to the critical communications and public safety sector in the months and years ahead.

Verizon’s Robert Le Busque will share the lessons learnt from that organisation’s deployment of a private 5G industrial network for the Port of Southampton in the United Kingdom.

Closer to home, ACMA has been busy facilitating a variety of licence types in the 26 GHz and 28 GHz bands (mmWave) for the deployment of 5G technology.

The conference program will also feature the federal government’s 5G Innovation Initiative, outlined by Dr Jason Ashurst, Assistant Secretary in the Australian Government Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications. This session will focus on companies that have so far received funding on this program, and cover the reasons behind the government investment in 5G.

Azure Space’s country lead, Lynn McDonald, will discuss how space-enabled tech is set to drive 5G innovation both locally and globally in her day two keynote presentation. Whether it is using the tremendous communications capacity that space provides or leveraging rich geospatial data, space-enabled tech is set to be at the forefront of comms innovation now and into the future.

These are just three of the 40+ sessions that will feature on the Comms Connect Melbourne conference program in March.
