At its booth TE is demonstrating its range of terminals, connectors, antennas, relays and sensors to address these challenges in a Tech Talk programme that will incorporate 25 presentations over three days. It will also show several new products and technology highlights in a series of exhibits and demos.
Key themes and industries include:
The future is fast: preparing for 5G
The 5G infrastructure will address the speed, latency and bandwidth issues that hamper today’s 4G networks, but needs the technological innovation of companies like TE to be fully realised.
Connecting cars to the cloud
With consumers demanding seamless connectivity between home, work, mobile devices and their vehicles, connecting cars to the cloud with 5G performance is vital.
Enabling Connected Transportation
By meeting the connectivity challenges of powertrain electrification, even in harsh environments, TE innovations are paving the way for a new generation of all-electric, fully autonomous vehicles.
Enabling the Connected Home
As smart-home popularity grows, TE is developing a broad range of connectivity and sensor solutions for home appliances and devices, lighting, HVAC, security and more, enabling their connectivity and control in the automated home.
Enabling the Connected Factory
TE is enabling the smart factory and growth of Industry 4.0 by introducing high-performance information and communication technologies – products that connect computers, information systems, sensors, relays, robotics, tools, building facilities, materials and products – to each other.
Sensing the Connected Future
TE’s intelligent, efficient and powerful sensors portfolio are driving innovation for companies and consumers around the world and throughout every industry.
“With the rapid rise of 5G networking, cloud computing and vehicle-to-everything communication, we are seeing a convergence of diverse technologies,” notes Alan Amici, chief technology officer, Transportation Solutions at TE Connectivity. “The common denominator is the connectivity provided by TE, as exemplified by the car-to-cloud trend, which will be enhanced by the adoption and implementation of 5G.”
