IoT Podcast: Over the Air
Q&A with Rob Tiffany Part 1: 5G, CBRS, Edge, IIoT & Agile
May 26, 2022
In this episode of Over the Air - IoT, Connected Devices, & the Journey, Ryan Prosser, CEO of Very is joined by Rob Tiffany, Managing Director at Digital Insights and Bill Flaherty, Director of Hardware Engineering at Very. In this Q&A session, they discuss the vast potential of CBRS and Enterprise 5G for industrial innovation in distributed environments. They investigate how much the impact of 5G will be determined by its use cases and degree of relevance, determined by the requirements of an IoT endpoint and application. Because 5G has potential to access more spectrum, it enhances overall bandwidth and allows a large number of IoT devices to connect.
Private businesses can use the CBRS band to construct enterprise infrastructure services without incurring prohibitively expensive license fees. The CBRS band enables businesses to create their own private mobile networks with a variety of configurations and performance characteristics. 5G is at the forefront of these speeds, with ultra-low latency, expanded capacity, and speeds roughly four times quicker than 4G.

They also looked into the digital revolution, which was enabled by the development and explosive growth of the Internet, and how Industry 4.0 builds on and expands that digital foundation to create the enabling environment for OT and IT convergence and transformation.

Rob Tiffany is Founder and Managing Director at Digital Insights. Rob served as Vice President and Head of IoT Strategy at Ericsson, driving 5G connection management for IoT devices. Spending most of his career at Microsoft, Rob was Global Technology Lead for the Azure IoT cloud platform and co-authored its reference architecture. Rob is an industry analyst working around wireless communications, IoT, digital twins, etc. 

As Very's Director of Hardware Engineering, Bill has a natural love of taking a complicated problem, breaking it down to its base level, and then coming up with a solution.
