'Internet of Things' clearly illuminated at CommunicAsia2014 and EnterpriseIT2014

Visitors will get to preview end-to-end solutions for big data, business analytics, cloud, M2M and wireless networking

SINGAPORE, 12 March 2014 - The Internet is ever-progressing, expanding beyond PCs and mobile devices into enterprise assets such as field equipment and consumer items. For a truly connected city to happen, it has to adopt 'IoT' (The Internet of Things) to transform how both an emerging or developed city delivers services and how business and people interact with one another. This can be done using advanced technologies and solutions that are not just reliable but also deliver high productivity.

The IoT installed base is forecasted to grow to 26 billion units by 2020.[1] Also, worldwide IT spending will grow by 3.1 per cent to US$3.8 trillion this year, driven by businesses starting to harness 'big data' garnered from smartphones and other devices.[2]

Showcasing solutions that can transform a vision into reality
CommunicAsia2014 and EnterpriseIT2014 together will unveil a full suite of end-to-end solutions that can transform the vision of a connected city into reality.

Visitors will get to observe and understand how big data, business analytics software, cloud services, embedded technology, sensor networks, RFID, GPS, M2M, mobility, security and wireless networking can help companies, from a wide spectrum of market sectors such as education, banking & finance, healthcare, hospitality, retail and utilities sectors, deliver a better way to live and do business.

Exhibitor and product highlights:

  • KORE Wireless - The world's largest dedicated provider of Machine to Machine (M2M) wireless data networks. Providing multiple technologies including 2G, 3G, LTE, CDMA and Satellite and available in over 180 countries worldwide, the KORE network is solely designed to empower devices for The Internet of Things (IoT)

    KORE's M2M Starter Kit features an award winning M2M management portal. Subscribers can monitor their SIM usage with proactive data alerts and threshold capabilities, activate/deactivate and manage user features instantly across multiple devices, and more.

    "KORE has been a driver of the wireless M2M revolution since 2003; in that time we've seen several flares of interest in The Internet of Things but now feels like the real start of the IoT revolution! Devices, platforms and solutions are more readily available than ever before and the eco-system is growing rapidly. KORE is pleased to see CommunicAsia promoting IoT adoption in the region - this is our fourth time participating and exhibiting our range of wireless m2m network solutions here. Each year we have more and more people asking us how to expand their global reach - this shows we have some really exciting products and services that will help our partners connect their M2M devices anywhere," states Mr. Shane Murphy, VP & General Manager, KORE Wireless Asia Pacific.

  • Advinno Technologies- A Singapore-based system solutions company that designs and develops IoT products using emerging technologies such as Bluetooth Smart, ZigBee Green Power and Wi-Fi Direct for track and trace, home automation, healthcare applications. iSmartTags, an innovative credit card sized Bluetooth Smart device, can connect with an OS or Android device automatically to instantly alert a user when valuables are separated by a predetermined distance (< 30m).

    Advinno has also developed wireless solutions for the healthcare sector. By embedding 'SmartTag' (a wireless device) into medical equipment, the device will be able to read a patient's health information and seamlessly transfer the data onto a smartphone or cloud server.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, director/senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, will discuss the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...
According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
"We are the public cloud providers. We are currently providing 50% of the resources they need for doing e-commerce business in China and we are hosting about 60% of mobile gaming in China," explained Yi Zheng, CPO and VP of Engineering at CDS Global Cloud, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 19th Cloud Expo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
"We analyze the video streaming experience. We are gathering the user behavior in real time from the user devices and we analyze how users experience the video streaming," explained Eric Kim, Founder and CEO at Streamlyzer, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 19th Cloud Expo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
