TIA Panel: Delivering Connectivity to Transportation

Walter E. Washington Convention Center, Room #103 B

High tech communications networks are essential to the transportation ecosystem as advanced technologies that deliver services and features to enhance the consumer experience, reduce traffic congestion, improve safety, and generate data-driven revenue are being deployed. This panel will explore what next generation network technologies and connectivity is needed to unleash the full potential of intelligent transportation, and what smart spectrum policies are needed to advance these innovations. Speakers will also discuss how we ensure we’re taking full advantage of connectivity in the vehicle; what 5G vs DSRC means to ITS, and how increased connectivity and the demands on data effect the network, as more vehicles and infrastructure become connected.
