Where does CONNECTIVITY, COMPUTE, IoT and USE CASES come alive? Future Technologies Innovation Center

Future Technologies and their eco-system partners will discuss the importance of a six (6) step approach to digital transformation leveraging CONNECTIVITY, COMPUTE, IoT, USE CASES and their Atlanta based Innovation Center.

This discussion will include a LIVE VIRTUAL TOUR of the Innovation Center, LIVE VIRTUAL USE CASE DEMONSTRATIONS and Industry insight from our Eco-System Partners.

The Innovation Center is a key part to taking ideas to reality in an emulated industrial environment and proving out the ideas to be integrated use cases. This Innovation Center provides access to Compute (Cloud and/or Edge), Connectivity (WAN, LAN, Public cellular 4G/5G, Private Cellular 4G /5G, CBRS, Wi-Fi, LoRa) and many use cases (Drones, Connected Worker / Remote Expert, Asset Health, IoT sensors and Computer Vision). Through this webinar the panel will walk through how this Innovation Center is true enabler for the Energy community to do interoperability testing, use case creation and most importantly make sure that the ideas work before proceeding to field demo or full proof of concept.  This should help Energy community drive innovation, decrease cost by efficiency and accelerate use case deployment timelines.
