Telecom networks are expanding and creating connectivity across more devices, which are sharing more critical data than ever. As 5G continues rolling out, these networks will increasingly define the future of commerce for everything from drone delivery of packages and autonomous vehicle ride sharing to managing logistics of goods sent around the world. Infrastructure is the core of that connectivity.
Maintaining a robust, real-time network gets more complicated as it grows, but new tools like unmanned aerial systems (UAS or drones) are making tower inspections faster, safer, and less expensive. While drones and drone services are available today – and are being deployed across the country – they still need to be operated in compliance with federal regulations. Navigating what’s possible and what’s allowable can be a roadblock to taking advantage of those new capabilities. And that challenge is not unique for telecom.
Adoption of unmanned systems is spreading, creating new efficiencies and transforming the way we do business across innumerable markets. The Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) works with industry, government, and user markets to help connect the dots between needs, capabilities, and regulation. Every spring during their XPONENTIAL conference and trade show, they create a unique forum where prospective users can learn from peers in other industries who have lessons learned from their actual deployments. Attendees are also able to experience first-hand how new products and techniques can impact their operations in the expansive exhibit hall, and can even gain certification as a commercial remote pilot with on-site training workshops.
AUVSI XPONENTIAL 2020 will take place May 4-7 in Boston and organizers anticipate more than 8,500 users, technologists and policymakers to participate in the event. Navigating the current market depends on understanding how shifts in technology, policy and public acceptance are transforming the world around us, and a growing community of industries look to XPONENTIAL as the one-stop shop for the knowledge, training, and technologies they need to propel their businesses into the future.
