of Things: Exploring the next big thing in mobile
Internet of Things (IoT) has been hailed as the next big
thing in the mobile industry. As connections from objects
and things interconnect with existing and new end points,
the networked effect can provide tremendous opportunities,
reshape existing processes, user experiences, and
expectations. But, really, how real is IoT and what will it
take to reach the billions of dollars promised. Will it
fundamentally alter how we do things? We are starting to see
signs of tremendous progress. GE is investing $4B+ into its
version of IoT – the industrial Internet and it is making
the difference in operations and machine learning. Connected
consumer gadgets are enabling us to lead healthier lives,
work more efficiently, and manage our time more effectively.
As we start 2016, Mobile Breakfast Series is taking a deeper
look into IoT and the opportunities it represents, the
challenges it faces, and the timeline for success. This panel will take a look at the fundamental
elements of IoT that will be a key layer for the
Connected Intelligence Era.
Seattle: Connected Intelligence: At the
Intersection of 5G and IoT
Two of the hottest topics in the wireless industry are 5G
and IoT and we are going to tackle both of them. US has been
the undisputed leader on 4G and the expansion of LTE
networks nationwide. Can it maintain its lead with Korea,
Japan, Europe look to wrestle the initiative back? What will
really drive 5G - applications, services, throughput,
economics? Can new business models emerge that help fund the
network cycle? Can spectrum be decoupled from the network?
Will we see open access network providers? Each network
evolution cycle generates 3x the revenue from the previous
cycle. Will 5G be any different? IoT is a key component of
the 5G story. How will 5G help IoT? What are the key
requirements before IoT shows its true potential? How will
the security and fragmentation issues be solved?
