GSMA desvelará la Ciudad Conectada en el Mobile World Congress 2013

-- Descubra la Ciudad del Futuro impulsada por la conectividad móvil

LONDRES, 18 de febrero de 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- La GSMA desvelará la Ciudad Conectada durante el Mobile World Congress 2013 en Barcelona, ofreciendo a los asistentes la oportunidad de descubrir de primera mano una ciudad del futuro en la que todo y todos pueden beneficiarse de unas conexiones inalámbricas inteligentes.

La Ciudad Conectada, que será inaugurada el 25 de febrero, presentará un entorno urbano completo que incluirá un ayuntamiento, unos grandes almacenes, un apartamento, una tienda de electrodomésticos, un hotel, una cafetería y salón, una oficina, un concesionario de coches y una calle. Cada zona contará con experiencias y productos novedosos, demostrando cómo un futuro más conectado (impulsado por la tecnología móvil) supondrá una mejora en la vida cotidiana de las personas a nivel automotor, educativo, de salud, de hogar, comercial y otros.

La Ciudad Conectada, lanzada en conjunción con AT&T, Deutsche Telekom, KT, Telenor Connexion y Vodafone, expande el concepto propuesto por la Casa Conectada, tan popular en años anteriores. Los asistentes al Mobile World Congress descubrirán la manera en que el sector móvil transforma la forma en que vivimos a través de demostraciones de productos tales como la bicicleta conectada, que supervisa el rendimiento en relación a su entorno, un sistema de control sanitario remoto que puede conectar a personas con profesionales de la salud desde sus propias casas, unos servicios logísticos inteligentes que ofrecen unas formas más eficientes de transportar personas y mercancías, una tecnología inteligente que convierte al móvil en el "cerebro" del hogar, y unos servicios para automóvil que modifican la forma en que consumimos información durante la conducción.

Michael O'Hara, Director de Marketing de la GSMA, afirmó: "La Ciudad Conectada demuestra cómo la tecnología móvil ya contribuye a mejorar los negocios y sociedades en todo el mundo. El progreso de los dispositivos conectados y las comunicaciones máquina a máquina (M2M) serán temas candentes durante el Mobile World Congress 2013, y la ciudad nos servirá de inspiración a todos, a lo largo y ancho de varios sectores, para reconocer el potencial de esta conectividad móvil omnipresente a la hora de impactar nuestras vidas. Las posibilidades de un mundo realmente conectado están únicamente limitadas por nuestra imaginación".

Se calcula que en 2020 habrá 25.000 millones [1] de dispositivos conectados, de los cuales al menos la mitad lo estarán a través de tecnología móvil.

Things are being built upon cloud foundations to transform organizations. This CEO Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo, moderated by Roger Strukhoff, Cloud Expo and @ThingsExpo conference chair, will address the big issues involving these technologies and, more important, the results they will achieve. How important are public, private, and hybrid cloud to the enterprise? How does one define Big Data? And how is the IoT tying all this together?
TechCrunch reported that "Berlin-based relayr, maker of the WunderBar, an Internet of Things (IoT) hardware dev kit which resembles a chunky chocolate bar, has closed a $2.3 million seed round, from unnamed U.S. and Switzerland-based investors. The startup had previously raised a €250,000 friend and family round, and had been on track to close a €500,000 seed earlier this year — but received a higher funding offer from a different set of investors, which is the $2.3M round it’s reporting."
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. Over the summer Gartner released its much anticipated annual Hype Cycle report and the big news is that Internet of Things has now replaced Big Data as the most hyped technology. Indeed, we're hearing more and more about this fascinating new technological paradigm. Every other IT news item seems to be about IoT and its implications on the future of digital busines...

This Internet of Nouns trend is still in the early stages and many of our already connected gadgets do provide human benefits over the typical infotainment. Internet of Things or IoT. You know, where everyday objects have software, chips, and sensors to capture data and report back. Household items like refrigerators, toilets and thermostats along with clothing, cars and soon, the entire home will be connected. Many of these devices provide actionable data - or just fun entertainment - so people can make decisions about whatever is being monitored. It can also help save lives.
