APAC IoT Innovation Summit & IoT Expo @ Mobile 360 – Digital Societies
It has been widely recognised in the mobile industry that Asia Pacific (APAC) is the world’s foremost growth region in IoT, representing 40% of the total global spend last year. Thirty-seven of the world’s 119 Mobile IoT networks are deployed in Asia Pacific across 15 countries, and there remains plenty of room for growth. To that end, the APAC IoT Partnership Programme was launched in October 2018, to bring together operators and their partners in the wider ecosystem for the sharing of ideas, progress updates and common challenges.
Global cellular LPWA network connections are primarily driven by the APAC region that accounts for nearly 97% of all NB-IoT (ABI Research, 2019). These Mobile IoT technologies are being merged into the 5G standards that further empower low latency, massive IoT and large bandwidth.
