'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.

What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Bradley Holt, a Developer Advocate with IBM Cloud Data Services, discussed...
