About this talk

Digital Transformation in a New Age, is a future-focused webinar series for Public Sector brought to you by Verizon. Join us for our first installment in the series "Communities, Campuses and Venues of the Future," where we will unpack how new technologies can help solve current problems. Host Albert Shen of Verizon and speaker Gabe Klein of Cityfi will be joined by Kunal Merchant of Lotus Advisory to discuss how the increasing availability of superfast, low-latency 5G, along with the proliferation of IoT devices, means more tools are available to help campuses, large venues and communities handle future big events safely. This technology can assist with crowd management, emergency response, cross-agency communications, contactless payments, accelerated access and even fever detection.
