The Comms Connect conference will return with its first live event in more than a year at the Lower Hutt Events Centre in Wellington, New Zealand, on 12–13 May, and once again it will incorporate the RFUANZ Gala Dinner and Awards night (on 12 May at Te Papa Museum).

The conference program is almost complete, and will this year primarily feature local leaders from the critical communications and public safety sectors across New Zealand. Two international keynotes will also feature, via video link from the USA. The final program will be released at the end of February.

Presentation topics confirmed so far include: 5G testing; IoT asset tracking in the beer industry: Securing NZ industrial environments; Spectrum management update; Mobile-first impact on first responders; The future of connectivity; Cybersecurity and the comms industry; Edge computing and narrowband for remote sensing; Utility network migration to IP/MPLS; Microwave and mmWave wireless backhaul.

The program will also feature two ARC/WRC Workshops presented by the Radio Spectrum Management team of Len Starling and Fadia Mudafar.
