  • The Telecommunications Industry Association is well represented at MWC 2018. TIA NOW talks to Wes Johnston, TIA’s CEO, about his impressions of the event, TIA’s smart buildings initiative, and its Network of the Future Conference.

  • What defines a smart building? How do smart buildings fit into smart communities? Is legacy infrastructure a problem? Join TIA NOW as we talk to Hugh Ujhazy, Associate VP for IoT and Telecommunications at IDC, about the architecture of the smart community.

  • What is the status of autonomous vehicles? What are the barriers to full AV deployment and how will the transition to 5G impact development? Experts from the automotive and technology sectors discuss the future of AV, and the next steps in development of this multi-industry disruptor.

  • The buzz at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) was about new developments in connectivity. Harry Smeenk, TIA's VP of Programs, discusses how innovations in smart homes/communities, autonomous vehicles and AI changed this year's CES from device focused to technology focused.

  • We talk a lot about network innovation on the virtualized side of the network, but what about the backbone of the network? Deploying fiber deep pushes better cable service closer to the customer, enhances scalability, and addresses concerns about aging copper being a bottleneck to network innovation. Cox Communication's Dr. Eugene Dai and EXFO's Sophie Legault spoke with TIA NOW from Cable-Tec Expo 2017 about the drive towards deep fiber, what impedes deployment, what deep fiber means for five nines reliability, and how service assurance will change as the network evolves.

  • Communities seeking the benefits of "smart" connectivity are faced with difficult choices: what are the first steps? How do you integrate applications? Which vendors do you work with? What's your budget? How do you manage public and private partnerships? In this discussion, city and county leaders tasked with scaling smart communities discuss the challenges and opportunities they're currently facing. They also weigh in on how the communications ecosystem can support their plans for current and future connectivity.

  • In this video panel from Nest headquarters in Palo Alto, CA, IoT security experts from VMware, Nest, NIST and Palo Alto Networks weigh in on consumer IoT and security. How do you balance the plug-and-play functionality of consumer IoT with network layer security?

  • IoT holds the promise to transform nearly every aspect of modern business, and bring efficiencies to our everyday lives. This TIA lunch and learn featuring policy leaders from AT&T, Nokia, Qualcomm, NTIA and more explore policies that reduce challenges to wireless broadband infrastructure deployment - and how public-private sector partnerships and other regulatory and legislative initiatives can help spur investment in IoT technologies and applications to enable smarter, safer and more efficient connected communities.

  • Rachel Kutz, VP of Strategic Initiatives within AT&T's Global Supply Chain group discusses how the value chain of suppliers and QuEST Forum's role help AT&T compete and achieve near-term sustainability goals.
