Prioritizing reliable communications
We count on reliable communications, especially when time is of the essence and safety is paramount. Future networks will need to perform and protect more than ever before, providing the information required to react faster and more efficiently.
Our research into reliable communication is already turning possibilities into realities. We are creating connected buses and cars that can talk to each other, assisting remote surgery where all data is being received via the network, and piloting sensors to keep miners safe by defining their work area and alerting them to approaching dangers.
IoT is a large part of our future vision for ultra-reliable communications. Its power enables real-time control and automation of dynamic processes, providing continuous and reliable communication between machines that people can trust.
In practice, this will enable mission-critical communications to be prioritized as they are happening, meaning that tasks can be carried out quickly, and wherever they are needed.
