But the advent of 5G presents an opportunity to transform emergency services communications, enabling them to share a much wider range of comms data. Which will have a significant impact on effectiveness and efficiency.</p> <p>And as the UK prepares for the future of a fifth generation network, we wonder just how much 5G could transform the emergency services&rsquo; ability to keep us safe and secure by providing them with real-time intelligence and unparalleled situational awareness.</p> <p>This event will examine&nbsp;the benefits that a fifth generation network that could deliver to the emergency services. We will explore the impact of 5G on major incidents response, the future of the control room, monitoring and prevention, and mobile working. The panel will explore how better connectivity and capacity could allow the services to take advantage of the latest technologies, and&nbsp;will&nbsp;try to identify what steps need to be taken by comms infrastructure providers, tech suppliers to blue lights services, and the Government, to make 5G enabled emergency services a reality.</p> <p>Speakers will include representatives from:<br> &bull; Samsung<br> &bull; EE<br> &bull; Capita<br>&bull;&nbsp;Home Office</p>Contact: <a href="mailto:henry.rex@techuk.org">henry.rex@techuk.org</a>Contact: <a href="mailto:sophie.weston@techuk.org">sophie.weston@techuk.org</a>Contact: <a href="mailto:sophie.warren@linklaters.com">sophie.warren@linklaters.com</a> http://www.techuk.org/events/meeting/item/13325-making-the-most-of-your-techuk-membership Making the most of your techUK membership http://www.techuk.org/events/meeting/item/13325-making-the-most-of-your-techuk-membership Thu, 14 Jun 2018 09:04:11 +0100 CRM Sync noreply@techuk.org Would you like to learn more about the many benefits and services that you can access through your company’s techUK membership?
