Bengaluru (also known as Bangalore), the capital of the southern state of Karnataka, is known as the Silicon Valley of India. As the center of India’s high-tech industry, it is an integral part of the economy of India as a whole.

IT companies in Bengaluru account for the highest IT-related exports in the country. It is clear to see that as IoT is expected to explode across India, many new Internet of Things startup companies are choosing the capital as their hub. For example, Wisense Technologies delivers a complete end-to-end platform for IoT and M2M applications, and Kaiota have developed India’s first wearable watch and phone GPS tracking module along with sensors, focusing mainly on the safety of children.

The IoT India Confex will welcome professionals, field specialists with new ideas, solution providers, solution seekers, start-ups, and Government Officials and Investors from around the world.

It has also been supported by the Department of Telecommunications and the Ministry of Communications & Information Technology.

Big name speakers include VS Shridhar, who is currently heading the Internet of Things Business Unit for Tata Communications, and Dr. Neena Pahuja, Director General for ERNET India, the Education and Research Network. She has extensive knowledge to share on IoT, Cloud implementation, and medical/healthcare.

The focus of the conference will be vast and cover many aspects of IoT:

  • Retail
  • Smart Homes

When talking about this fascinating event and the compelling subject of Internet of Things itself; IoT expert and Project Director of Aayera, Syed Fareed Ahmed said, “IoT is one of the most talked about technologies in India. The next big step is towards implementation of IoT across different industries and sectors. The IoT India Confex is a business driven event that brings together solution providers and solution seekers under one roof to discover the most disruptive IoT solutions.”

The highlights of the event will include several advertized keynote presentations covering the future of internet manufacturing, the solutions for automotive OEMs needed to implement for sophisticated connected vehicles, and the future of artificial intelligence in healthcare to name a few as well as panel discussion sessions and the only event featuring demonstrations of Industrial IoT throughout the two-day conference.
