Event Introduction

Internet of Things or “IoT” is appearing up everywhere around our lives.  It’s a term, it’s an object, and it’s a piece of technology. Just a short couple of years ago, these were just standalone “things” that’s been around for decades.  

According to IDC, IoT technologies and services are expected to generate global revenue of $8.9 trillion by 2020.  While IoT is gaining momentum and impacting business, culture and our lives, this growth is still at its infancy. 

  • Where is the growth? What are the next things that will be connected?
  • How are these Things being identified, deployed and managed?
  • How to manage and analyze the Cloud/Big Data enigma as a result of these connections?
  • What technologies, platforms, network and communications protocols will emerge as the mainstream standards?
  • Will security and privacy inhibit the adoption of IoT?

And the billion dollar question:  How to monetize the ideas in this billion dollar IoT business.


Join us and our guests from China, IBM, Ericsson, Cisco, Huawei, HEJUN and many more at our SVC Wireless Annual Conference 2014. Learn how to capitalize on the NEXT BILLION CONNECTIONS.  Discover from analysts, visionary, VC and industry experts discussing major IoT trends on key topics such as SDN, Cloud and Security.  Last but not least, take heart from VCs and entrepreneurs who share their success stories…
