Panel to Discuss IoT Business Opportunities and Regulatory Challenges

HubThe Internet of Things (IoT) universe is expanding rapidly. There are now over 25 billion connected devices in use worldwide, with that number set to rise significantly as consumer goods companies, auto manufacturers, healthcare providers, and other businesses continue to invest in connected devices. Tremendous market potential and limitless business frontiers abound in the IoT. While many opportunities exist for manufacturers, importers, and vendors of IoT devices, there are also regulatory, privacy and tax issues, both in the U.S. and abroad, that can trip the unwary.

Join the panellists to learn about:

  • Where specifically are the opportunities for suppliers of IoT devices in 2016 and beyond?
  • What does it take to make products market ready--in the U.S. and abroad?
  • What privacy and security concerns exist that could undermine consumer confidence?
  • And, as IoT blurs the line between products and services, why is taxation potentially having a bigger impact than many expected?

The panellists:

IoT Business Opportunities: Dean R. Brenner, Sr. VP, Government Affairs, Qualcomm; and Mark Roberti, Owner, RFID Journal

FCC Regulations: William S. Hurst, Chief, Technical Research Branch, Laboratory Division, Office of Engineering and Technology, Federal Communications Commission
