IoT Living Connections

Click here to watch this years key notes

In a world where everything’s connected, the best ideas can come from where you least expect them. That’s why we’re organizing Living Connections, our annual IoT symposium, for the fifth year running. Created by the industry, for the industry, it’s a unique opportunity to join key experts and industry leaders to get their insights and experiences. We want to inspire you to re-imagine your business, and the world it operates in. And empower you to take practical action, and start realizing the business benefits of IoT. That’s what everyday IoT is about: insightful inspiration, practical action and beneficial results.


Insightful Inspiration

IoT will transform your company and the way you do business. At Living Connections, you can get the ideas you need, and check out inspiring solutions that will help you imagine the possibilities.

Beneficial Results

Ultimately, IoT is about delivering results for your organization. Learn how you can get maximum benefit from your IoT investment, and use your resources in the best possible way.

Practical Action

Having fresh ideas is great, but the proof is in the realization. Come and see how others have gone about planning and executing their IoT-projects. Discover what steps you need to take to ensure a successful outcome.

Intel and selected partners - IoT in Buildings and Industry solutions drives sustainability and business value - concrete examples

Johan Falk, Head of Intel IoT Ignition Lab

Peter Andersson, CEO Pythagoras

Peter Regio, CEO Flowscape

Lars Ramfeldt, CEO Yanzi

Rickard Fristedt, Senior Business Development Manager  IoT Dell

The what question: WWF just announced their Living Planet Report describing how the human pressure on the planet has been increasing exponentially driving climate change,  deforestation and life extinction. The curves must shift downwards and the ICT industry has an  opportunity to drive IoT solutions which enables BOTH increased business - societal value AND decreased ecological foot-print simultaneously – which is game-changing.

The how question: To enable a mass-market, the industry will move from vertical lock-in solutions towards secure, horizontal, IP-based, standardized solutions applying Software Defined Architecture (SDI) at the Edge, and central/edge distribution of analytics.   This enables efficient standard hardware and continuous  software-driven innovation,  from cloud to edge. New mobile network technologies such as NB-IoT will also enable new usage models

We will highlight concrete examples together with some of our partners:

IoT Office Solution with Flowscape, Pythagoras and Yanzi Networks.

IoT Industry Solution with Dell and Axxelerate

IoT Mobile Network solution with Gemalto
