Fluxus LLC joins World Economic Forum Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) to work with leading innovators, business leaders, policy-makers, academics and civil society representatives on formulating solutions to the critical challenges and opportunities presented in our time.
In collaboration with the Forum’s Center for the 4IR, Fluxus places an initial focus on contributing to its IoT, Robotics & Smart Cites Portfolio, and joins 5G-Next Generation Networks Programme.
“Connectivity ecosystems will be enhanced by 5G and next generation networks, unleashing new opportunities for dynamic business models and solutions to societal challenges like mobility, healthcare and resource management. Governments, organizations and industries need to level the playing field to ensure associated economic growth and societal gains reach all members of society.”– Karime Kuri, Project Lead, World Economic Forum
While 5G technology offers many exciting possibilities, building design and construction methods must be carefully managed to optimize signal integrity throughout the structure. Fluxus believes that successful integration of sensors, antennas, control systems and other components into the building envelop is best managed in a factory scale setting. Industrialization of connected buildings with compatible IoT interfaces will serve to leverage the full power of 5G.
“We look forward to contributing our domain knowledge to the team, working with IoT business leaders and public sectors to prepare construction industry’s readiness for an inclusive global implementation of next generation networks, and aim to ensure the currently underserved and underperforming affordable housing market can benefit from it.”– Fanyu Lin, CEO of Fluxus LLC
