Duration: 1 hour including live Q&A

The colossal Internet of Things (IoT) opportunity has hatched numerous use cases that require long battery life, deep coverage and mobility. This, in turn, has fueled demand for cellular and low-power wireless technologies such as 5G and narrowband IoT (NB-IoT). But which technology is best suited for the industrial sector?

Industrial IoT (IIoT) is well on its way to becoming standard practice, although there has been a lag in deployment. In fact, according to our recent IIoT readiness survey, over half of all end users have yet to trial IIoT solutions. So what's the delay?

Join Matt, Kevin and Brian from the IHS Markit and RootMetrics team for answers to these questions and more:
