5G Networks Will Combine Intelligence with Speed for IoT

July 13, 2017

Next-gen networks will not only be a lot faster, they will be smarter. The fusion of computing power with communications capabilities has steep implications for the IoT/M2M sector, not just for high-data-transmission applications like wearables and infotainment, but also for low-date, low-power apps. This session will explore the latest IoT use-cases being developed for 5G networks.

IoT Success: Getting to Market is Key

September 28, 2017

Sierra Wireless

Experts estimates that nine out of ten IT startups will fail in their first year, and that the chief culprit in this phenomenon is the lack of a go-to-market strategy. Companies without a clear vision for how to bill for new services to achieve ROI, and for how IoT will affect their entire organization, are likely to fall into the trap. This session will provide use cases for success, and as a learning exercise, for failure.
