Internet of Things and WSN USA 2013

Today, cellular phones are linearly connecting people to other people and devices. Machine to machine automation with wireless sensors is being deployed but usually in islands of disparate systems. The evolution of these - the next huge opportunity - is the Internet of Things, which will both attempt to connect these existing systems and then augment that by connecting more things, thanks to wireless sensor networks (WSN) and other technologies. Data will then travel less linearly - things on the 'edge' form mesh networks and can make their own automated decisions, meanwhile the new big data 'cloud' automatically transports your preferences with you as you move, so any environment you are in is tailored to your needs without the need for you to do anything.

But where and how, in the scale of hype to reality, can the Internet of Things profit suppliers and users today? What are the pragmatic steps needed to enable the Internet of Things and widespread deployment of wireless sensor networks that are feasible and based on an ROI and not the hope someone else will pay for this?

Companies presenting include:


The Pragmatic Internet of Things and WSN Event

This IDTechEx event addresses the opportunity for the Internet of Things. It does not cover hype and unrealistic dreams but addresses the business models, case studies, actions, profitability and missing gaps. It covers case studies within key market verticals and appraises the new enabling technologies coming onstream. It will help you assess your business strategy and timing, the technical, consumer and governmental challenges, new business models and opportunities.

Hosted by IDTechEx, a 14 year old market research firm on the topic, this event offers a platform to gain insight, informed analysis and to meet new partners through the conference, tradeshow, masterclasses and networking sessions.
