Part of the New Business Incubation team being formed to scale automation solutions to process and synthesize data, this fusion technique will create new opportunities for Verizon customers to gain insight into efficiency with the power and reliability of 5G.
“I look forward to bringing my more than 20 years of experience in smart spaces and IoT to enhance the work the Verizon team is doing in this space,” said Jules. “With a sustained focus on sensor fusion capabilities for spaces and places, we will further the work of our Digital Space Orchestration, robotics and IoT teams to better meet the needs of enterprises everywhere.”
