On November 18th TeliaSonera hosts the annual international M2M symposium in Stockholm, Sweden, on the theme “M2M is now”. The symposium will gather delegates and speakers from across society including businesses, academia and the public sector. Key note speakers include senior executive from TeliaSonera, Ericsson, Microsoft, Oracle as well as Chris Dancy, known as the most connected human on earth.
M2M or IoT, Internet of Things, a more popular name, is happening now. The number of connected things in the Nordic countries already exceeds the region’s population and that trend will intensify and continue over the coming years. The Swedish M2M-market alone is expected to be worth EUR 2 billion in 2017. Stockholm is therefore a suitable location for TeliaSonera M2M symposium.
The symposium, the largest of its kind in the region, will focus on three important areas of M2M: “Business & Companies”, “Society & People” and “Technology & Implementation”. Microsoft, Fältcom and Oracle along with other companies will host seminars during the day that explore these areas and how M2M impacts broader society, businesses and what companies need to consider when connecting their products and services.
Among the key note speakers at the symposium is Chris Dancy, also known as “the most connected human on earth”. Chris, who calls himself a “Data Exhaust Cartographer”, utilizes 300-700 sensors, devices, applications and services to track, analyze and optimize as many areas of his existence possible. This quantification enables him to see the connections of otherwise invisible data, resulting in dramatic upgrades to his health, productivity and quality of life.
Also speaking at the symposium are Hélène Barnekow, Senior Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer at TeliaSonera, Charlotta Sund, Head of Ericsson in Northern Europe and central Asia (RECA), Jonas Persson, CEO Microsoft Sweden and Henrik Ståhl, Vice President of Product Management for Java and Internet of Thing at Oracle.
