  • What is the Internet of Things?
  • The Future of Platforms
  • IoT Connectivity: Types and Choices
  • Connectivity Management Platforms
  • IoT Sensors and Data Collection
  • Security, Privacy, and the Internet of Things
  • IoT Use Cases (renewable solar energy, automotive/fleet management, healthcare, smart cities and financial/insurance)
  • The Future of the Internet of Things

Hosain has nearly 40 years of experience in the semiconductor, telecommunications and computer industries and has served in leadership positions for several industry associations and technical standards bodies. He currently serves as chairman of the IoT M2M Council (IMC), the largest and fastest growing trade organization serving the IoT industry with more than 25,000 members worldwide and covering 24 different vertical market sectors.

    “Imagine a future where enterprises and consumers will ask product companies about the sensor capabilities accessible via a mobile app when purchasing a new appliance or car. In the future, not only will cars talk to each other, but people will wear clothes connected to the Internet, reading glasses will be connected to provide additional context to enrich the user’s experience, and more than one-half of the Internet traffic to homes will go to appliances and devices and not to children’s video games. Sound unlikely? We think this future may not be too far away. Given the tremendous growth and change that is taking place in the IoT industry, the future certainly is hard to predict, however, this is what we see taking shape in the near future.”
