Ondas Networks, a developer of private licensed wireless data networks for mission-critical industrial markets, will hold a free webinar on the IEEE 802.16s standard for mission-critical data communications with MissionCritical Communications at 1:30 p.m. EST April 11.

Kathy Nelson, director of technical product marketing and industry relations at Ondas Networks, will present on various private licensed wireless network applications of IEEE 802.16s and Ondas’ FullMAX technology, which is built to the standard. Select speakers in the oil and gas, rail and transportation, and utility sectors will also offer case studies highlighting the benefits and applications within their respective industries of IEEE 802.16s standard technology.

IEEE 802.16s is the only standard developed specifically for mission-critical communications in narrow channel sizes of less than 1.25 megahertz. The data standard is a fit for private, licensed communications systems that have mid-size spectrum access, such as the 700 MHz A band;160, 217 – 219, 450 and 900 MHz; and 1.4 GHz. The webinar will discuss the history, technical specifications and future of IEEE 802.16s.

Sandra Wendelken, editor of MissionCritical Communications magazine, will moderate the webinar, which will include questions and answers. In addition to Nelson, presenters will include:
• Rick Smith, IT Infrastructure Architect, Chevron
• Wayne Tatro, Principal, MC3 Systems
• Henry McCreary, Consultant, Sunrise PTC Services
• Mark Ponton, Rappahannock Electric Cooperative

“Modernization of mission-critical communications networks is necessary to meet emerging industry requirements for increased data traffic, mission-critical internet of things (MC-IoT) adoption and incorporation of edge computing,” said Nelson. “This webinar will provide attendees with a better understanding of what the IEEE 802.16s standard is and how this narrow channel amendment is actively being utilized across different industries.”
