UTC webinar: Unlocking the value of 5G/CBRS for utility companies

Date |  August 10 2021
Time | 14:00 EST / 19:00 BST

  • Jacob Reeb, VP of Wireless and Digital Services, Cambridge Consultants 
  • Dr. Mat Gilbert, Director of Engineering, Cambridge Consultants

Private 5G offers many benefits for utilities. Combined with sensing and artificial intelligence, 5G will drive new business value, creating vast efficiencies and opening new revenues.

This has sparked an influx of investment, demonstrated best by the many utilities winning 3.5GHz Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) spectrum in the recent FCC auction. However, building a Private 5G network is complex, expensive and has many pitfalls. So, where do you start?

What technology is available now and how do you get maximum ROI? How do you integrate seamlessly with legacy endpoints and protect your data against outside threats?

This webinar will answer these questions, helping utility companies understand the commercial opportunities of Private 5G and offer practical advice on selecting the right technology and building secure and resilient networks.    

During this webinar you will learn:

  • A 5G technology review – what is available and how this compares to LTE
  • Opportunities of Private 5G Networks – from smart grids and digital twins, to automated visual inspection from drones
  • Making 5G work for you – how to customize 5G to your specific needs
  • End-node innovation - how to modernize legacy assets and how to create the AI-powered connected devices of the future
  • Making networks secure – how to approach cyber-security and protect your data

The webinar will be of value to anyone within a utility that is exploring or activity planning 5G deployments and digital transformation programs. The insights we will share are based on our many years of developing cellular technology and deploying private networks for some of the industry’s leading companies.
