How the low latency and increased bandwidth of 5G can enable faster, more reliable connectivity for mission-critical communications will be covered in an online seminar organised by the IoT M2M Council (IMC) next month.

Called “Lead the 5G forward: Laying the foundation for mission critical communications”, the seminar will be held on Thursday April 7, 2022, at 11am New York time.

More reliable communications can bring significant benefits for the first responders working at the frontline. Less than 10ms ultra-low-latency can be life-saving and asset-saving in the blink of an eye in scenarios such as natural disasters, medical treatment and public safety.

This is where 5G technology come in. It can be the key to implementing the mission-critical applications.

In this webinar, the IMC is gathering network operators, the FirstNet organisation, and Fibocom to discuss how 5G meets the challenges for mission-critical communications, and how first responders equipped with 5G-enabled devices can better protect our communities.

The moderator will be Fred Yentz, CEO of IoT Launch. He will be joined by two experts from Fibocom – vice president for product lines Brian Richardson and business development director Joey Zhao. Also on the panel will be Jason Inskeep, who is the director of AT&T’s 5G centre of excellence, and Mike Fragale, vice president and general manager in the USA for BeamLive.
