V2X: The Architecture and Infrastructure Requirements for Smart Transportation

What are the components required for a robust and secure digital infrastructure to support the connected vehicle opportunity. This webinar focuses on not just the “connected” component, but also the  intelligent, computing and accessing the cloud. What is required? Who will pay for it? What is the business model for infrastructure owners?

The Automotive Edge: Edge Computing Architecture to Support V2X

In order to unleash the true power of 5G, data must be processed, stored and analyzed closer to the end user. To accomplish this, organizations need to bring this power to the edge of the network – or in other words, they need to leverage edge computing solutions as the brain behind 5G. The Edge journey is being conducted through the adoption of innovative solutions such as micro datacenters, and open, interoperable, IoT-enabled system architectures and platforms. This session defines this shift from centralized, cloud-based systems to decentralized edge cloud. Is this the next wave of shared infrastructure spending and investment?

Positioning to Win: Where to Place Your Product/Service Bet in a V2X Environment

The auto industry is on the brink of a revolution, and the driving force is the suite of technologies known as the Internet of Things (IoT). As IoT technologies and services transform the automobile, the ecosystem is witnessing a steady influx of new players and the continued evolution of the roles of key stakeholders and the balance of power among them. Of particular interest is the evolving relationship between automakers and software providers. The suite of technologies that enables the Internet of Things promises to turn most any object into a source of information about that object. This creates both a new way to differentiate products and services and a new source of value that can be managed in its own right. Realizing the IoT’s full potential motivates a framework that captures the series and sequence of activities by which organizations create value from information: the Information Value Loop.

Automotive Applications of Device-to-Device Communication in 5G Networks

Device-to-Device (D2D) enables the communication between devices such as smartphones or vehicles. The technique enables new device-centric communication that doesn’t require direct communication with network infrastructure. Does D2D solve network capacity issues, and does it make low-latency communication possible? This session examines device-to-device communications and the applications that it enables.

Redefining the Access Network: Examining RAN Architecture & the Implications for 5G Transport

From today’s low-bandwidth safety applications, C-V2X will accelerate with 5G New Radio to provide ultra-low latency and high reliability for critical communications enabling direct communications (V2V). In addition to broadcast, 5G NR will also support unicast and multicast transmission modes to improve the system efficiency in 5G deployment scenarios.  As operators upgrade to a new 5G Core, other devices (V2N, V2I) will benefit from new architecture like network slicing and MEC. Essential security features will continue to develop in 3GPP Release 16. Learn more about the future on the road to 5G as the 3GPP standards develop, 5G network deployments expand, and C-V2X becomes reality:

Analysts Roundtable: The State of the V2X from Outside the Forest

Analysts differ in their estimates, but all agree that the prospects are staggering. Gartner predicts that by 2020, more than 250 million vehicles will be connected globally, with the number of installed connectivity units in vehicles worldwide increasing by 67 percent and consumer spend on in-vehicle connectivity doubling.  This is the opportunity to hear from leading independent technology, corporate and investment analysts who will discuss V2X in the context of the competing trends; political and social considerations perhaps; investment and investor interest – and the long-term viewpoint of the industry as a whole.
