ITU TELECOM WORLD Internet of Things Events


ITU Telecom World took place this week in Geneva, and offered several IoT related sessions.

The event seeks to provide a platform to “network, share knowledge, seek solutions to global challenges and design a Manifesto for a connected world on how connected technologies can make global citizens happier, healthier, safer and smarter.”


Speakers will explore the role of the ISP, and examine emerging issues, such as the role of social networks as a platform for exchange and real-time communication, the problems of building a more secure and available Internet, emerging requirements for identity mechanisms, and the implications of network virtualization and overlays and how the Internet will evolve.
