Session Abstract:

Smart Cities, Smart Buildings and the IoT sector in general rely on the one hand on a robust connectivity and on the other hand on a standardized platform layer to enable the services they wish to provide. Telecommunication carriers are fast on the trail of providing both the high bandwidth, low latency capabilities of 5G, as well as the penetrating capabilities of low power wide area networks (LPWAN), such as LoRaWAN or NarrowBand-IoT. Both levels of capabilities, serve important needs for in-building connectivity. Why there is a need to digitize the buildings and their assets? One of the main challenges within the Facility Management industry is a lack of use-case-comprehensive and standardized TC/IT platform services, to tackle the existing hurdles. Only one example is to get a transparency about the “real” utilization regarding the office spaces. With the end-to-end service, starting from minimally invasive IoT sensors and ending on platform-based service Apps, you do not only gain insights about your office rooms, but you also can optimize your facility services, such as the “demand based cleaning service” or a “near real time conference booking availability”. This keynote presentation will discuss carrier roles in enabling new types of services across different real-world use cases for Smart Building, and how the carriers are readying in themselves to provide these services.
