10:00 a.m. – 10:45 a.m. ET | ENSURING MASSIVE REAL TIME MONITORING & CONTROL DATA THROUGHOUT THE NETWORK EDGE
An incredible amount of bandwidth is required to support modern enterprise monitoring and control systems. This is especially true for the energy industry, which operates in some of the most remote environments with extreme weather conditions. Maintaining constant and reliable uptime is key, as every second of downtime could cost millions in operational costs. This discussion explores the challenge ahead for VSAT managed services, LEO constellations, and private 4G/5G enterprise networks in ensuring a constant, reliable, high-performance broadband pipeline at the network edge.

10:00 a.m. – 10:45 a.m. ET | ACCESSIBLE PROBLEM-SOLVING APPLICATIONS: IMAGERY, TRACKING, SENSING, AND STORING
While Tuesday’s session focuses on the data pipeline to power applications at the edge, this session focuses on the form and function of the applications themselves. Not too long ago, data analytics was often packaged in as a value-added service. Now, this same data is universally acknowledged as a critical cost-saving tool. How have imagery, tracking, and sensing applications become more accessible to the energy sector? Have advances in AI and cloud technology helped refine and sculpt the endless, formless mass once called ‘Big Data’ into something more practical in today’s environment? Join us for a software-defined webcast on the latest software and cloud application developments!

10:00 a.m. – 10:45 a.m. ET | DESIGNING NEXT-GEN GROUND SYSTEMS WITH ENERGY CUSTOMERS IN MIND
We now move from software to hardware with an in-depth look at how mobile terminals are changing with the modern landscape. What kind of physical profile are energy industry customers looking for in modern ground systems? During this session, we’ll take a look at a few specific challenges for developers: Can modern systems create a seamless, remote connectivity experience both indoors and outdoors? How small and durable can ground systems become over the next decade? How can we make ground systems “easier” to operate and maintain (installation, automation, etc.)?
