2018 April Dinner Recap E-mail
April GuestsIt’s already here! As we learned from Verizon’s Joseph Howard and Vijay Patel at the April meeting, Atlanta is a test zone for 5G wireless. With so many IoT applications, the need for is increasing and with speeds up to 30 to 50 times faster than 4G, it’s easy to get excited. Other benefits include low latency enabling the technologies needed for autonomous vehicles, for example, to become a reality.

The group learned that 5G is low range, requiring more direct/line of sight connections. Initial implementations are point to point. This will be the biggest challenge for 5G – establishing an infrastructure to enable it.

Another challenge discussed is security. Segregating IoT services to a wireless 5G network provides a security benefit allowing users/companies to keep their networks private while providing high speed, convenient services.
At one point we even played “where’s Waldo?” in relation to all the IoT services provided to us regularly. By 2020, it is predicted 20.4 billion things will be connected globally.
Augmented gaming, LED street lights, gunshot detection, and more are already being tested. Check out this video to see a live test of the 5G network:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dw2GT95Vyxc.   AITP Atlanta would like to thank both Joseph and Vijay for their time and sharing Verizon’s exciting innovations around 5G wireless! 

Please join us for our next meeting, held the 3rd Thursday of May – 5/17 – at the Crowne Plaza Ravinia from 5:30pm to 8:00pm.  We will be hosting Ryan Edge, Solutions Engineer with OneTrust who will be leading the conversation on the topic of Security – specifically Data Privacy.  There is so much out there on this topic, but one thing really stands out – specifically for the month of May – GDPR – General Data Protection Regulation.  GDPR was approved by the EU Parliament on April 14th, 2016 and will officially be in place on May 25th, 2018.   This new regulation will have a far-reaching impact, and if your organization isn’t talking about it, I’m sure it will soon! 

Registration for this event will be available shortly on our home page at www.aitpatlanta.org.    If your company is interested in sponsoring one of our events, please reach out to Steven Wright at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
