Presenter: Ishaq Mian Redline Communications
Instrumentation and control systems are going mobile in mission-critical infrastructure industries. This demands a change in how communications networks have traditionally been planned and deployed in these industries. Mobility is becoming a key functional requirement and LTE is the technology of choice to fulfill this requirement.
Building private LTE networks for these industries poses two key challenges: Spectrum and engineering requirements imposed by the critical nature of instrumentation and control systems operating in extreme environments. The spectrum challenge is being addressed by regulators across the globe and has been a topic of discussion in previous events. This session will focus on the second challenge, i.e., how practitioners must plan their communications infrastructure for mobility in mission-critical infrastructure industries.
Objectives of this webinar:
- Briefly review the latest trends in digital transformation of mission-critical industries and what it means for instrumentation and control systems.
- Review functional and non-functional requirements imposed on the underlying communications infrastructure by the rapidly transforming mission-critical systems.
- Introduce a framework for planning communications networks for mission-critical mobility.
