Global connectivity leader will present a three-day Tech Talk program, with 25 presentations, at the Munich trade fair

MUNICH, Germany – Nov. 8, 2018 – TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, will showcase how it is responding to the challenges of creating a safer, sustainable, productive and connected world at electronica 2018.


At its booth (Hall B2, Booth 225) at the Nov. 13-16 trade fair, TE will demonstrate its extensive expertise in terminals, connectors, antennas, relays and sensors technology to address these challenges in a Tech Talk program that will incorporate 25 presentations over three days. It will also show several new products and technology highlights in a series of exhibits and demos.

Key themes and industries include:


The Future is Fast: Preparing for 5G

The 5G infrastructure will address the speed, latency and bandwidth issues that hamper today’s 4G networks, but needs the technological innovation of companies like TE to be fully realized.

  • Sensors and components to power the 5G future. At the show, TE will introduce its new ERFV RF (radio frequency) Coax Connectors for 5G wireless applications
  • Network solutions that support speeds up to 100 times those of 4G networks
  • With much broader bandwidth and ultra-low latency, 5G will be integrated into infrastructure, impacting automated manufacturing, processing, retail and agriculture


Connecting Cars to the Cloud

With consumers demanding seamless connectivity between home, work, mobile devices and their vehicles, connecting cars to the cloud with 5G performance is vital.

  • End-to-end data connectivity within cars, industrial vehicles and beyond
  • HIRSCHMANN MOBILITY antenna technology for 5G
  • High-speed data connectivity for vehicle-to-cloud infrastructure


Enabling Connected Transportation

By meeting the connectivity challenges of powertrain electrification, even in harsh environments, TE innovations are paving the way for a new generation of all-electric, fully autonomous vehicles.
