5G Fact vs. Fiction

Webinar hosted by Semtech, MultiTech and Orange

Moderated by Beecham Research

There is little doubt 5G will play a major role in shaping how we interact with and use connected technologies in the future. In addition to transforming functionality, 5G also represents a transformation of how traditional Cellular networks interact with other communication technologies. With these shifts in networking on the horizon, and much uncertainty about what exactly this will mean for the communications industry, Semtech will separate fact from fiction in regard to 5G networks and introduce the audience to the advantages of LoRa® devices and the LoRaWAN® protocol to create stronger hybrid networking solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT).

LoRaWAN-based solutions are the optimal choice for serving those applications that 5G cannot, and as a result, make it ideally suited to bring additional strength to 5G networking. Join Semtech, MultiTech and Orange for a new in-depth webinar on how 5G will change the industry and the role LoRaWAN-based solutions will play in this industry shift.
