Session Abstract:

The promise of the Internet of Things (IoT) for Life Sciences and Healthcare will be dramatically improved with the roll out of 5G. As a telecom provider the strategy around 5G and NarrowBand is more than just a technology update. In this session we will cover the following topics:

> How does 5G improve the experience for the casual user? Demonstrating what we have today versus when 5G is available.
> What to expect from 5G and NarrowBand from a frequency and data transmission perspective, and how does it impact the IoT device itself. We will compare similar IoT devices available today and new devices based on NarrowBand as an example.
> Use cases for Life Sciences and Healthcare

Your key takeaways:
1. You will know more about why 5G is so important to the adoption of IoT.
2. You will see how 5G impacts the overall size of the IoT device.
3. You will see examples of IoT being used for supply chain visibility for Pharma and Healthcare, how IoT devices are tracking shipping containers, and how IoT is the ‘tip of the spear’ of the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) of 2013, plus a preview of a new device for hospitals, and its application that helps providers and patients.
