Axis to Unpack the Transformative Impact of 5G on Video surveillance at Expo 2020
February 21, 2022 News


Axis Communications, a global leader in security and surveillance solutions, will be hosting its fifth high-impact technology conference at Dubai’s Expo 2020. As an official partner of the Sweden Pavilion in the Sustainability District at the Expo, Axis has been driving the conversation about leading technologies that are helping us shape a smarter, safer and more sustainable tomorrow. The fifth conference, titled “Share in the Discovery of 5G,” will take place on the 22nd of February 2022 and bring together a panel of experts to discuss the unique challenges and opportunities of 5G adoption for enterprises.

The conference will be opened by Ettiene van der Watt, Regional Director, Middle East & Africa, at Axis. Insightful discussions on topics ranging from smart buildings, smart cities, urban mobility, manufacturing and the impact of 5G on personal and professional lives will formulate the flow of the event. This includes a focus on 5G-enabled smart buildings with enhanced safety and security presented by Marie Helene Mansard, Director of Business Development at Axis Communications APAC, and 5G’s unique factors beyond unprecedented bandwidth speeds, presented by Vishnu Bhan, Senior Director at Singtel.

Axis will also be sharing its success stories of use cases for 5G, such as Ericsson and Singtel’s multi-edge computing network, SoftBank’s self-driving bus, and General Motors’ car servicing monitoring system.

As the fifth and latest generation of wireless technologies, 5G is capable of handling more connected devices with lower latency, has more robust security and offers improved network capabilities. For example, 5G network slicing can prioritise specific users, services or devices when a network is congested.

“While 3G and 4G LTE predominantly served the private subscriber, 5G will enable enterprises and governments to connect IoT devices at a greater scale and improve decision making with real-time data aggregation and analysis. By 2025, 5G networks are likely to cover one-third of the world’s population,” said Mansard.

“We are collaborating with ICT companies and having a dialogue with our partners and customers to explore various areas where 5G can complement our network video solutions. Our open architecture approach to technology development enables easy integration of our products into new and existing systems as 5G adoption rises,” added Mansard.

Axis is hosting six transformative technology conferences at Expo 2020 from the 1st of October 2021 to the 31st of March 2022. These discussions are also available online for on-demand viewing.
