The Internet’s Third Act: The Connected Device Decade
This free webinar, based on a recently released Mobile Future report authored by former White House Advisor Jim Kohlenberger, examines how the next wave of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and other connected devices will further accelerate mobile opportunity and exacerbate the looming spectrum crunch. Wireless technologies play a significant role in the connection of an amazing array of devices (and people) to the Internet. Innovation and investment in M2M will transform vital sectors of the economy, including transportation, energy, health care, and security to name a few.
The webinar looks at:
- The promising and extensive opportunities in the digital device decade
- The technologies that are driving the connected device revolution
