According to Gartner (2017), the Internet of Things market is expected to grow from 8.4 Billion connected devices in 2017 to around 20.4 Billion by 2020. The key to the success of many of these Things is mobility. Many enterprises and their service providers might still believe their IoT needs are national or regional, but mobile industrial/commercial and consumer devices tend not to stay inside national borders. Then there are the IoT service providers, who need to support global activations from the start. Service providers have tried to find ways to shrink their coverage gaps. Among them are options of building their own global MNO relationships for IoT roaming; and joining international IoT alliances. The former requires much work and has country-level complications; the latter can require buy-in to a specific platform. Both approaches can leave sizable holes for global coverage.

In his presentation, Ajay Joseph, Chief Technical Officer of iBasis, will go into the pain points of MNOs and IoT Service Providers as well as solutions to consider, when it comes to worldwide support in Global Mobile Access for Things. His presentation will cover:

  • The explosion of Things and the need for these Things be connected across borders
  • The (r)evolution of SIM technology: the eSIM and the support in footprint expansion
  • eSIM security and the importance of tackling the end-to-end risks at an early stage
  • The significance of partnerships for global mobility and access

The Internet of Things is an absolute game changer in our markets, businesses and society. It augments not only our capacity to monitor processes, events, people and machines but also raises considerably the amount of available data to extract knowledge from it. These capabilities bring many new insight opportunities but also novel challenges that need to be addressed. In this presentation, we will present an overview about IoT Analytics and share how our customers are benefiting from taking the correct decisions on the infra-structure upon which their Edge Analytics is being performed.

The goalposts are moving faster than ever, so how do you bring IoT enabled products to market quickly and still meet functionality, interoperability and security needs?

In this session, David Mudd, BSI’s IoT Business Development Director will answer this question with a focus on three key themes:

• Fundamentals – IoT opportunities and threats for product development
• Best practice – the evolution and consensus on best practice for quality, safety and security
• Assurance – the critical importance of assurance to building consumer confidence

With these insights you can be prepared for the unexpected and maximise the commercial advantages for IoT enabled products.

Immediately after this session, BSI will host a special press conference in the Club Room on the upper deck. You’re welcome to join BSI team there.

The increasing number of connected devices means that there is an increasing need for networks that can cover massive amounts of connections per cell, at low cost and using low power.  Using LTE-m or NB-IoT, several Telco’s are entering this market, but what are the advantages and disadvantages of this type of technology over other LPWA networks like LoRa?  And how does being an established Telco help you connect with customers in this crowded market.  Finally, we will discuss the future of LTE-m and NB-IoT with the introduction of 5G IoT networks looming.
