Deutsche Telekom, Orange and Vodafone were the headline speakers at the European Communications/Mobile Europe Internet of Things Conference in December.
The event, held in London, brought together attendees from across the telecoms industry to discuss the role of telcos in the IoT.
The day began with headline European Communications Editor Marc Smith outlining the headline findings from our recent survey into the IoT.
Ansgar Schlautmann, Principal at AD Little, then stepped up to discuss the value proposition that telcos should inherit in order to be successful in the IoT.
As we move towards autonomous vehicles, Phil Skipper, Head of Business Development at Vodafone M2M, discussed how the needs for mobility change as the car and infrastructure become inseparable.
The smart home is another key vertical and speakers from Deutsche Telekom and Orange gave their assessment of this space.
Jon Carter, UK head of Business Development, Connected Home, at Deutsche Telekom, discussed how to ensure this area is not another market that telcos fail to drive growth from.
Patrice Slupowski, VP Digital Innovation at Orange, went on to explain why the IoT and big data are intrinsically linked, and how the France-based telco is applying this to the smart home.
The event also featured discussion around the privacy and security issues associated with the IoT. Click here to watch all the videos from the event.
