Private networks in construction: fast tracking digital transformation

UK Construction Week Panel ExCel London

11.35am-12.10pm 2nd May Digital Construction Hub Stage

Come hear from these experts on the real life private networks use cases!

The panel will outline practical ways private networks can fast track digital transformation in Construction: Digital transformation to deal with site challenges here and now. The construction industry is going through a digital revolution that is changing construction sites and in the future is predicted to look drastically different.

This is not the introduction of technology for technology’s sake but to help the industry deal with some of its key challenges. For this digitalisation to take place the construction industry requires reliable, secure and high performing voice and data wireless network connectivity and for the people, plant, equipment and materials across construction sites to be effectively connected. In most workplaces these core services are seen as a basic utility available to all but not within the construction industry for work sites.

Private mobile networks offer a real solution. The interactive panel session with private networks and construction industry experts from NOKIA, Electronic Media Services (EMS), BAM Nuttal, Cohesive and COMIT Projects will outline the challenges facing the construction industry and show how utilising 5G and digital transformation can help remove or alleviate those challenges so that the industry can build faster, with fewer people and at reduced cost.
