About this webinar

The C21 Connected World Series Presents;

Satellite and the IoT Connection ... IoT . IIoT . IoV . M2M . V2V ... LTE . 5G . 6G

.... a virtual conference scheduled for Wednesday, October 7th: 14.00 - 17.30: British Summer Time. Satellite and the IoT Connection will join the growing "Connected World Series" portfolio of virtual conferences organised by the innovative London based organiser, Century 21 Communications (C21).

An analisys of the role of satellite communications in the distributed networks, over which billions of connected devices and machines, will transfer data without the requirement of human control. Truly ubiquitous IoT connectivity, which will revolutionise multiple industries including agriculture, farming, smart cities, public infrastructure, autonomous vehicles and transport, environmental monitoring, aerospace, maritime and a multitude of others, can only be acheived with satellite deployed to support the volume of wide-spread connections and to capture the vast amount of data (Big Data) that results.

Produced by: Paul Stahl, Executive Director, C21

Moderated by: Peter de Selding, Co-Founder & Chief Editor, Space Intel Report
