Challenges and Opportunities in Internet of Everything (IoE)

Smart IoT solutions and services, such as for smart connected homes and buildings, are proliferating because of recent advances in wireless, miniaturization technology, improvement in processing power, standards and market readiness. This presentation will examine the early adoption of IoT and examine how IoT has advanced, empowered by parallel advancements in technology and standards for sensing, gateway and services.  Forecasts project connecting 50 Billions smart things by 2020, improving business efficiency and quality of life.  Attendees will also learn about critical considerations in building IoT product and system solutions leveraging a smart software IoT platform approach to handle security, event-filtering, messaging protocols, cloud server, and sensor fusion frameworks. The IoT roadmap calls for a collaborative intelligent approach that will impact our connected life and businesses.  IoT application requirements for some of the future opportunities in smart homes & buildings will be explored with support from some use-cases.
