About the event

Supply chain 4.0 – how wireless communications is at the centre of supply chain digitisation

This online SIG session will outline some of the challenges faced by freight logistics, the solutions being adopted and explore ways in which wireless communications is being used to accelerate adoption.

The digitisation of the supply chain is a key component of Industry 4.0 and in particular the digitisation of freight logistics is an area with much work in progress. All modes of transport are becoming part of an increasingly digitised ‘systems of systems’ – with drone aircraft, drone ships and autonomous vehicles, robotic warehousing and cloud platforms already influencing the design of such systems and wireless connectivity has a vital role in ensuring that all parts of these systems work seamlessly together. Public wireless networks, private wireless networks and hybrid wireless networks are working together with Smart City initiatives, connected road environments, connected sea ports and airports and numerous IoT use cases to meet rapidly evolving customer expectations.

Speakers to be announced shortly.
