Digital Transformation: 5G and the 4th Industrial Revolution: Unlocking the Potential of IoT

Course Description

This course will examine 5G and the role of  IoT and M2M technologies in accelerating digital transformation, and improving how businesses, governments, and consumers operate, along with regulatory frameworks that facilitate the deployment of these technologies. IoT solutions use M2M technology to connect machines to provide the visibility businesses and governments need to help improve management and delivery of services, among other things. Organizations that have already started using IoT solutions are seeing benefits in many areas. For example, with smart communities solutions, all parts of the city can be connected, so that government officials become aware of whats going on and where, which helps them make communities safer and more energy efficient. IoT and M2M technologies also enable the coordination and control of emergency response, resource management, fleet management, energy usage, traffic management, and much more.
