Real estate developers, owners and tenants are rethinking the office building experience. Not only are buildings becoming increasingly efficient in in-door energy management and operations, they are also beginning to interact with the people who work within the walls, and with the out of doors environment.
This type of sentient building design is making use of increased connectivity to and in buildings, as well as the use of sensors and IoT applications. This webcast will discuss communications and connectivity infrastructure that is being deployed in and to current real estate developments; what buiding owners, operators and tenants expect; the impact smart community development is having on smart buildings; and sample smart building IoT applications.

Recent research has uncovered that consumers fall into one of four categories of eating style - crunchers, chewers, smooshers or suckers.
According to the research, chewers enjoy a prolonged chewing action, crunchers like the sound and feeling of a hard bite, smooshers enjoy manipulating soft food in their mouths, and suckers enjoy extracting as much flavour as possible.
We can help food companies use these findings to improve formulations and their front-of-pack messaging. By understanding each eating style, manufacturers can develop more successful products. In this webinar, we focus on yoghurts to show you how you can use these innovative insights.
In this webinar, you’ll learn about:
•The importance of Sensory Experience to consumers
•The differences in eating styles
•New consumers insights in yoghurts which you can use to develop your products
•Ingredion’s texture capabilities and expertise
Research shows that today’s consumers want great-tasting foods and beverages that offer enhanced nutrition and clean labels. They’re also looking for plant-based protein and sustainably sourced ingredients. Pulses help you meet these hot consumer trends—and we see their use in formulations skyrocketing. But when should you leverage their natural, beany flavor profile and when should you choose a clean-taste version? Get consumer insights and formulation tips in this pulse-focused webinar.
We will be running a special webinar on 31st March at 10 a.m.

This webcast will explore the latest advances in RAN, including:
• Which technologies will see the earliest deployments?
• How important will the 3.5 GHz band networks (also known as the Citizen’s Broadband Radio Service (CBRS)) be in future 5G applications?
• Will mmWave networks change the game in the last mile?
• How far will the industry advance in real deployments in the next year or two?
• Where are companies participating in this ecosystem investing their money?
• Are there concerns for Return on Investment (ROI) that companies are trying to resolve?

This webinar will focus on the pitfalls associated with tight field test specification of pre-terminated fiber systems for high speed channels in the context of the real capability of portable testers.
Best practices are discussed (proper test limit specification) such that field test costs will be minimized.
The Internet of Things will redefine services offered in such industry sectors as eHealth, smart communities, retail, transportation and energy. To provide the levels of service required, infrastructure networks will be suffused with levels of complexity beyond any deployed and operated to date.
The concept known as “5G” is still being defined. It will include legacy systems such as 3G, expand the development of 4G LTE, incorporate newly developed technologies such as holographic beamforming and virtualization, and include other types of networks such as WPLANs, satellite, and fiber. Interoperability of the networks, seamless integration of applications and the transfer of data across the networks and systems will require autonomous and artificial intelligence to ensure seamless, secure and ensured delivery.
Chris Clayton, Head of Solution Design & Delivery for Beyond Limits, and George Karayannis, Vice President of CityNOW for Panasonic, will take us on a deep dive on how the integration of networks and autonomous artificial intelligence capabilities will enable trusted IoT connectivity demands within Smart Cities.
This webinar will cover latest trends, the shift to hybrid IT/cloud and colocation, the value of modular designs with preconfigured cabinets, growing vertically instead of horizontally, 40/100G migration (and future 400G) and the importance of low-loss fiber connectivity in backbone switch to switch links.
Global family offices and high net worth individuals have over US$50 trillion in assets to deploy. By 2025, this asset volume is expected to surpass US$100 trillion. This group represents a powerful force for good in the financing of climate solutions and the transition of the financial system towards low-carbon investments, across all asset classes. This webinar will explore low-carbon investment strategies for private investors in the context of a market transition away from fossil fuels and the economy-wide decarbonisation targets reaffirmed in Marrakech.
Leading private wealth advisors are increasingly being asked to measure the impact of their strategies on climate targets, and to incorporate climate value creation metrics into their investment decision-making.
In this ET Index Research webinar industry experts will explain:
• Why leading wealth advisors are adjusting their strategies across asset classes to capture the upside of a market-led transition to zero carbon energy systems
• How family office investors and their advisors can protect their portfolios through the low carbon transition and use strategic capital deployment to accelerate an economy-wide transition.
• What impact private wealth investment decisions mean for the future of climate change policy action and the market-based transition away from fossil fuels.
