IoT Symposium 2013

Machines don’t network. People do.

Watch the key notes

Connected solutions that drive innovation and growth

M2M solutions are already helping to drive business goals, increase efficiency, save money, improve service and make life easier in virtually every sector of business and industry. But what does it take to ensure M2M solutions drive innovation and growth?

The TeliaSonera M2M Symposium helped answer many of these questions during a full day in November. With experts in the M2M, IoT (internet of things) Network Society and Industrial Internet the event gave some highlights to the evolution of the connected society and demonstrated values through real customer cases.

With morning key note presentations from Ericsson and their visions around the Connected Society and the background to the 50 billion connected devices followed by how you work with data to make your race boat be more efficient by Oracle started the morning.

Finishing the first key notes GE one of the world’s largest companies shared their work on the Industrial Internet and the revolutionary effect this will have. The talk about the examples of the “Power of One” and how a 1% affect in the industry can make a big difference.

Especially fascinated in how one of their turbine could generate more data than Twitter. The final keynote of the day was Tesla and the journey they are on with a totally new way of looking at what a car offers and what that incorporates.

The Networked Society – Opportunities for people, business and society


Robert Puskaric, President, region Northern Europe and Central Asia, Ericsson Our world is experiencing a shift that rivals the magnitude of our journey into the industrial society. We are on the brink to the Networked Society. It took 100 years to connect one billion places and 25 years to connect five billion people. The next step is connecting things. Ericsson envisions more than 50 billion connected devices by 2020. Where anything that benefits from a connection will have one, to the advantage of people, business, and society. This is a starting point for new ways of innovating, collaborating, share and get informed.

Sustainability mandates are forcing organizations to employ measures to reduce their carbon footprint. These measures also help organizations reduce their operational costs through energy savings. Tech Mahindra will present solutions that will help organizations meet their sustainability requirements through efficient energy management. Speaker : Marina John, Manager – M2M Strategic Initiatives, Tech Mahindra.

FältCom will present the FältCom toolbox for higher efficiency in your everyday situation, whether you are working with fleet management, if you are operating a service vehicle or if you just want to follow up or evaluate your service fleet. Speaker: Per Bergman, M2M - Business Unit Director, FältCom.

After connectivity via broadband and powerful wireless networks has been achieved, the focus is now on effective communication among all elements of the architecture, on service and application development as well as on remote lifecycle management. In this area, a hardware-independent, open and scalable end-to-end platform based on Java + OSGi is becoming the reference architecture. Speaker: Thomas Hott, CEO of ProSyst.

The Mobile Life Centre explores experiential, leisure and playful mobile and ubiquitous interactions. We do serious research on what we might normally portray as “unserious” activities. We get inspired by doing studies on people's mundane leisure and creative activities such as horseback riding, hunting, parkour, dancing or role-playing. In this presentation you will get an overview of some of the research done, focusing in particular on how we see Internet of Things as a design material consisting of sensors, actuators, local connectivity on the one hand and big & small data streams in the cloud on the other hand. Speaker Kristina Höök - professor in Interaction Design at the Royal Institute of Technology and SICS (Swedish Institute of Computer Science).
