The Mobile World Congress 2017 was a success, as always. Of course the Internet of Things theme was present and many cases of real use of IoT were discussed. I share here with you 3 trends that I thought relevant this year.

1. IoT Security

Security remains a priority when it comes to IoT, especially with recent IoT DDoS attacks and other high-level violations. A great panel titled “Enabling Security in IoT,” organized by Stuart Carlaw from ABI Research, focused on helping the public understand the full IOT security scenario and what needs to be done to ensure security in their IoT services .

2. 5G

The industry has been talking about 5G for some time now, and discussions have continued to gain momentum this year with service providers focused on announcing significant advances to 5G and in how they come together to work on 5G standardization. The highlight was for Korea Telecom which has announced that it intends to be the first commercially available 5G network in 2019.

3. Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWANs)

LPWAN technologies like LoRa and Sigfox, without licensing, have been featured in past editions of the MWC. This year the main focus was on licensed technologies, particularly NB-IoT. Highlight for the 3GPP that completed its NB-IoT standardization, and a large number of service providers announced that they intend to support NB-IoT.

LTE-M had a lot of prominence as well, with dozens of service providers announcing their LTE-M availability. Telefonica and Verizon, for example, have confirmed their support for the global deployment of LTE-M.

To create new products and services in an increasingly connected world is a constant challenge for companies. Thinking about it, Konker, a Brazilian company, has developed an Internet of Things platform focused on the corporate market, which allows clients to create their own connected solutions in a fast, simple, and secure way.

Konker serves clients from several areas, such as insurance, agriculture, logistics, manufacturing and retail. “We help our customers to break down technological barrier and to reduce the time to market in IoT solutions,” said Rafael Ferraz, Konker’s product marketing manager.

Konker’s platform is offered in two formats. In the first one, the client builds its own IoT solution using the platform, and the laboratory, and still can count on the experience of Konker’s team to execute the project. In the second one, Konker’s specialists and a network of partners deliver a turn-key solution to the clients. Konker has developed a business model that allows our clients to prototype, build, launch, and manage their connected innovative solutions and with high impact in the shortest time possible.

Among the resources available, Konker platform gives the possibility of managing millions of devices, ensuring real-time connectivity, data analysis and automated and intelligent decision-making.

Connected products must have a comprehensive view of security to protect services, data, and users. Based on this, Konker platform also helps to control the way in which users, applications, and devices are authenticated and authorized, and how the data is protected during a transaction or storage process.

“Our development team has extensive knowledge of complex enterprise environments. We create a solution that fits easily in companies technological chess”,  concludes Wellington Mariusso, Konker product manager.

Konker platform supports the main connectivity technology standards, communication protocols, microcontrollers, sensors and intelligent market labels. To learn more, visit www.konkerlabs.com.
