-- 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. En la Ciudad Conectada, los visitantes podrán explorar el impacto de este aumento sobre las industrias verticales, así como la importancia de fomentar unas asociaciones estratégicas con el fin de sacarle el máximo provecho a este mercado en crecimiento.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic • Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it’s a mix of architectural style...
