Vice President of Engineering will discuss the current state of IoT, basic motivations and future predictions for the space
ALISO VIEJO, CA – October 1, 2015 – Smith Micro Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMSI), a leading provider of wireless and mobility solutions, today announced its vice president of engineering, Dejan Dimić, will be the keynote speaker at Voxxed Days Belgrade (October 1). Dimić will examine the Internet of Things (IoT) from a data-centric perspective, including how to monetize the data generated by interconnected devices.
Over the next decade the number of connected devices is expected to increase dramatically with some estimates ranging from 25 billion to 50 million devices in 2025, generating between $3.9 trillion to $11.1 trillion per year. With the influx of interconnected devices, the market is beginning to shift its attention away from LTE networks to 5G technologies that can support the projected demand for IoT. Even though a 5G standard is still considered years away, it’s currently transforming business models and opening the door for emerging business opportunities.
In his presentation, “The Internet of Things: What Lies Ahead,” Dimić will leverage his expertise in connectivity to closely examine how the introduction of IoT systems into the home, workplace and industrial settings will alter and enrich the way people and businesses function. Complete with a real-time audience demonstration, Dimić will highlight the power of collecting device analytics, and the insights that can be gained.
“Despite the infancy of IoT, its impact is growing quickly, and very soon anything that can be connected, will be connected,” said Dimić. “Governments, policy makers and businesses now have the chance to accelerate the enormous opportunities associated with IoT, but to do so they must unlock the data associated with IoT, and learn how to utilize it to better understand people, systems and markets.”
Presented by Devoxx, Voxxed Days Belgrade is a two-day event focused on Java, Web, mobile and JVM languages for an audience of senior developers and user group leaders of the international developer community.
