The GSMA Internet of Things Programme help operators to fully realise the opportunity in the IoT. Operators must deliver secure IoT networks as well as scalable value added data services for the world’s industry and machines beyond connectivity. This is to be achieved by industry collaboration, appropriate regulation, optimising networks as well as developing key enablers to support the growth of IoT.
The GSMA IoT Program is the Event Partner of the Connected Skies Forum.
