InterDigital at Enterprise IoT Summit: Standards-Based IoT Essential for Maximizing Smart City Investment

March 27, 2017 | About:

Company featured in 5G for IoT applications and use cases keynote alongside Intel, Qualcomm

WILMINGTON, Del., March 27, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ahead of the companyâs participation in the debut Enterprise IoT Summit in Austin, TX (March 28 and 29), Jim Nolan, InterDigitalâs Executive Vice President, IoT Solutions, has a clear message: responsible and intelligent deployment of IoT technologies, particularly in Smart Cities, requires the adoption of standard-based solutions.

âWhether itâs through the adoption of established standards like oneM2M⢠or the increasing role of 5G technologies that address Massive Machine-Type Communications, responsible deployment of technology requires the future-proofing and guaranteed interoperability that standards are designed to drive,â said Mr. Nolan. âA study by Machina Research last year showed that, in Smart Cities alone, deployments could squander $341 billion, or 30% of the cost of implementation, if they adopt non-standard solutions. In an area where so much spending will be driven by publicly-funded infrastructure development, itâs essentially a matter of responsible government to make a standards-driven technology choice. In other areas of IoT, which the World Economic Forum states could comprise two thirds of global GDP over the next decade, that 30% savings is just good economic and business sense.â

InterDigital, Inc. (NASDAQ:IDCC), a mobile technology research and development company, will participate in a keynote panel at the Enterprise IoT Summit, at the Palmer Events Center, Austin, TX.  The keynote titled, â5G for IoT Applications and Use Casesâ, led by Dan Meyer, RCR Wireless News Editor-in-Chief, will bring together the following industry leaders:
