Inspired by the radical changes in the ICT industry, the refreshed CommunicAsia continues to be Asia’s most established and relevant event for industry professionals in the telecommunications sector. Find out more here. IRG Technology Tour at CommunicAsia 2018    At this year’s CommunicAsia IRG will once again hold a technology tour, this time focusing on innovation. One of the primary aims of IRG is inspiring innovation, in the form of solutions, tools, and processes, which in turn reduce errors and improve efficiency. Over recent years, there have been a great deal of new innovations spearheaded by many of the group’s members, which are having a significant positive impact on satellite communications. That’s why during this year’s tour participants will learn about new innovations from a cross-section of the industry. This includes new products and tools being developed by the technology vendors, but it will also showcase how operators are using new innovative processes to improve efficiency and reduce errors across their networks. The tour will also look at future innovations, with experts on hand to talk about how new techniques such as machine learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI) will further improve the industry in the near and longterm future. The tour is led by Martin Coleman, Executive Director, the Satellite Interference Reduction Group and independent consultant with more than 40 years’ experience in the satellite industry. On each stand, he will be joined by an expert from that company able to give an in-depth view of current and future innovation.
