A few days ago I saw moniker Internet of Things being used by ATT/ Cisco. Now We have an M2M Conference that is titled – M2M – The Internet of Things.
The German Telematics Association TelematicsPRO, Beecham Research Ltd and Mach-mer International Consulting are pleased to announce the international M2M-conference that will take place on 9 and 10 October 2008 at the European TelematicsFactory in Berlin-Charlottenburg in the heart of the German capital.
This two – day highly qualified conference will provide a venue for constructive exchange of views among European decision makers and specialists operating in the field of M2M and the Internet of Things, with a particular focus on long and short range wireless.

Held at The Santa Clara Convention Centre, CA, as part of ConnectivityWeek 2008 the fifth M2M Expo will comprise of multiple industry-related events over three days.
ConnectivityWeek’s uniqueness is that the event gathers a number of key subjects that are inter-related, around the common theme of energy and sustainability. This is presented with an understanding that the main issues of technologies and solutions facing the differing audiences are in fact similar if not common – differing only in context and application.

A conference that brings together System Networking and healhtcare professionals to talk about use of network technology to improve the lives of an aging population. This is interesting as it address some my themes from previous posts about managing and providing cost effective care for the elderly.
As the world’s population grows older, healthcare and high-tech companies are joining forces. New technologies are being used to provide improved support for elderly and home bound people in their homes and in assisted living environments. The overall goal of these initiatives is to improve the quality of life by providing customized support to people in need of assistance. The main challenge is to provide this support according to the user’s own specific situation in a non-intrusive and respectful way. These new technologies enable the automatation of the observation and support for elderly and home bound people through the use of sensors, actuators, distributed intelligence, databases, ubiquitous connectivity and friendly adaptive interfaces, all connected mainly via a variety of wireless networking technologies. The ultimate goal is a system that can adapt to the users needs, helping them get through their daily routine in a way that is effective in providing support where needed without making them feel humiliated by excessive attention. To provide such support, it will be necessary to combine efforts from many areas of computer science, including networking, distributed systems, security, data management, HCI and middleware.
Given the inherent use of mobile and wireless communication and the need for comprehensive distributed systems as well as the multi-disciplinary nature of solutions for healthcare and assisted living environments, the goal of HealthNet is to provide a forum for the cross-area interactions that will be necessary for successful systems and applications. The specific focus of HealthNet will be on understanding what it takes to provide effective systems and communication support for healthcare and assisted living environments.

Smart service conference in Europe covering the benefits of M2M as implemented by some of the leading adopters.
The program also includes exclusive workshops covering the Development of Smart Service Value Propositions and Services Innovation, with additional panel sessions covering Alliance Development and Overcoming Implementation Issues. This will be a highly interactive program offering significant and unique added value for attendees looking to better understand the strategic opportunities of M2M and Smart Services for their own companies.
The ability to monitor, repair and control equipment remotely over the Internet — using either Wireline technologies like Industrial Ethernet or Wireless technologies like GSM, GPRS, or CDMA cellular mobile, satellite, Wireless LAN, Bluetooth, ZigBee and RFID — has changed the concept of service for manufacturers in key industries around the world. By increasing customer satisfaction with faster turnaround times and enabling concrete savings on service costs, new M2M technology has allowed implementers to introduce “remote smart services” and gain competitive edge over those still using traditional service methods.
