Connected Living LatAm Summit
More than 100 people met in June at Vivo’s headquarters in São Paulo to discuss new business opportunities for growth enabled by connected devices. LatAm is an emerging region, where Connected Life can represent a revenue opportunity for mobile operators will be 92 billion USD by 2020.
During two days, network operators such as Vivo, Oi and Telenor debated with healthcare, education, automotive and Smart Cities how to accelerate this market. Their experiences were shared with the representative of Brazil’s Secretary of Communications, as well as the Ministry of Health, the National Council of Education and São Paulo municipality.
Unprecedented survey on mHealth
During the event, the results of an unprecedented survey about the advantages of mhealth amongst Brazilian doctors and patients were announced. Both believe that mHealth’s resources (use of mobile devices in medicine of public health) will enhance health treatment and patient monitoring.
The survey was conducted at the GSM Association’s request and is part of of a study that involves three other countries (USA, India and China) that will be available soon.

Possible Tax reduction in Brazil
At the Summit, the representative of Brazil’s Secretary of Telecommunications, Maximiliano Martinhão, Diana Tomimura, also announced the intention of reaching a political agreement so that mobile operators start paying a smaller tax for each mobile station (Fistel). Fistel funds Brazil’s Telecom regulator, but its reduction is viewed by the Government and by operators as an important M2M market enabler.
