Event description

Description

Objective

On the occasion of the next ITS Congress in Strasbourg, ESOA and ERTICO are pleased to invite you to participate in a workshop: ‘5G enabled Connected Vehicles – powered by Satcoms’.

5G will create infinite opportunities for the fast development of the connected market and will eventually become indispensable to it. In this regard, satellite brings unique capabilities and will play a key role to achieve the expected goals.

This workshop will bring together relevant actors from different sectors to discuss the limitations of a single network to meet the requirements of an evolving connected car market and how only cross-sector collaboration will ensure success.

No single network can meet the requirements of the evolving connected car market so that Satellite is a key component of a ‘network of networks’ working alongside 3/4/5G, WiFi, DSRC and other technologies.

Satellite brings unique capabilities that offer more efficient and secure means of supporting safety and operational requirements, as well as a network extension for nearly any requirement. However success in the market requires partnerships with key players in the connected car ecosystem (OEMs, Tier 1s, service providers) to enable integration to systems onboard the vehicle.

The workshop program will be divided in two sessions focusing on business models and product development to present current connected car challenges and how a partnership between the different stakeholders can ensure the automotive industry to reach the next challenging Connected Car targets.

Session 1 – The connected car business model - 14:00 to 15:15

  • An Introduction to Satellite in Transport
    Andrew Faiola, ESOA
  • Spectrum, Satellite & 5G - a Network of Networks
    Mohaned Juwad, Senior Manager - Spectrum Policy at Intelsat
  • How does satellite fit? Driving cost and size out of technology
    Jim Kilfeather, Head of Technology and Product Development, Connected Car Program at Inmarsat

Coffee Break & Networking - 15:15 to 15:45
