16:45 - 17:10 "Mobile Enables the 'Internet of Things'"
Mobile is more than phones and tablets. Advances in technology are enabling machine to machine connections that are creating new revenue streams, operating models and opportunities to provide customer value. We are able to identify things by tagging them and can then sense them in the environment. Advances in nanotechnology are helping us infuse intelligence and processing power into objects to create thinking things. Advances in power technology allow us to power things more efficiently and for longer periods of time and in more remote locations than ever before. This session will cover how these technological advances are enabling new business opportunities like remote monitoring of things like machines, homes and even an individual's health, all of which once required face to face access. It will also detail how context aware devices can proactively push promotions to people in proximity to a particular location and can help items like luggage speak to the systems that move them indicating their location and status.
17:10 - 17:35 "Securely Connecting the Next Wave of Devices"
• From Connected Devices to a Connected Society
• How to Remotely Manage Connectivity - a scalable and secure solution
