The Mobility Awards have been held for the past decade to recognize vendors and service providers in the Mobile & Wireless industry. The A-List in M2M awards, established in 2012, recognize hardware, software, and service organizations that represent the transformational impact that M2M and IoT brings to businesses and consumers in a large variety of categories. The Bamboo Mobile Green Technology Awards recognize the eco-initiatives of cellular carriers and third party vendors in enabling the reuse and recycling of mobile hardware. In recognition of expanding list of products and services offered by companies using online and digital platforms, Compass Intelligence Awards now includes Best-in-breed Digital platforms. Leading mobile and wireless vendors and press will attend this event. Dr. Gerry Purdy, Compass Intelligence Chief Mobility Analyst, will emcee the event and luncheon.

The award recipients are selected by a group of leading industry analysts, editors, thought leaders, and journalists that cover these industries. The results will be announced at the second day of the 2015 International CES conference with an event that will include a luncheon, fireside chats with key mobile leaders, and recognition of the awardees. A new award for 2015 is the Lifetime Achievement award selected by the analyst team at Compass.

"Last year, Compass Intelligence Awards recognized visionary service providers, OEMs, hardware, and software vendors in the mobility market located at one of the largest technology conferences in the world," stated Stephanie Atkinson, CEO and Founder of Compass Intelligence. "We are excited to build on that foundation and produce a great networking event for members of the press, vendors and service providers. We are pleased to continue our affiliation with the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) for these awards."

And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind. Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Boyd, Engi...

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...

Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
