Meet our partner Join @ MWC 2018
Join will host three roundtables, together with Q-Loud and KrypC, at the Holland Pavilion.
Roundtable: Connect the Unconnected – the importance of ‚retrofit‘ in IoT
Envision the future where anything that can be connected is connected. In reality, it means connecting all your hardware to the Internet of Things. A task, some might find very challenging considering the fact that there are no standards or one-size-fits-all solutions.
This round table will guide you through the first steps of connecting any hardware to the IoT.
Don’t’ wait up, start now!
With the right connectivity and connectivity management on your devices new business opportunities are endless!
Roundtable: Blockchain & IoT
Studies show that the biggest gain for the IoT in the long run will be its convergence with the Bockchain technology.
Here is a current dilemma: Connecting your devices to the IoT opens a myriad of business opportunities. However, by connecting our devices to the IoT Cloud, who do we trust my company data to? If it is connected it is part of the IoT.
This is when the Blockchain technology comes in handy. In the future, Blockchain-based IoT solutions and services will be able to provide comprehensible answers to this dilemma. M2M economies will be orchestrated as transactions on the blockchain.
In this round table we will exchange the prerequisites of being a part of the machine-to-machine economy, having an integrated IoT and blockchain strategy and leaving a footprint in the IoT, M2M and blockchain space.
Roundtable: M2M and the impact on new business model
Fairly any object with a sensor and an IP address can be considered part of the IoT. This broad definition encompasses everything from smartphones to vending machines, windmills and smart home appliances. Just like its big brother the Internet, the Internet of Things will consist of numerous smaller and larger networks, such as body area networks, connected home networks, all the way through smart city networks. Several studies have estimated that the IoT will connect almost 50 billion objects by 2020, all of which will be receiving and transmitting vast amounts of data. Light bulbs, thermostats, shoes, and display windows; if it’s connected, the data it provides will be valuable.
Each M2M network will develop at different speeds depending on market factors. When will NB-IoT, LoRa, Sigfox or normal GSM be the ideal solution?
In this round table we will discuss new business models to provide connected-devices-as-a-service as part of your business.
