Hybrid technologies for critical messaging
With current and evolving technologies all designed to carry messages we look at the pros and cons of these technologies and how they can be utilised to deliver critical messages to activate our emergency responders, health workers, 24/7 facilities, data centre providers and critical infrastructure maintenance. The presentation will take an in-depth look at traditional paging as well as 3G, 4G, 5G, Cat-M1, NB-IoT and LPWAN technologies, such as Sigfox and LoRa, and how combining these technologies will deliver more resilient solutions for messaging.
We will also look at some cybersecurity issues around BYOD and smartphone apps. Is your messaging really secure?
