Vancouver: Internet 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?


Mobile Breakfast Series - Seattle is taking a deeper look at the intersection of 5G and IoT and the opportunities that represents, the challenges it faces, and the timeline for success. This panel will take a look at the fundamental elements of 5G and IoT that will be a key layer for the Connected Intelligence Era.
