IEEE GLOBECOM 2013 to Feature Industry Forum & Exhibition (IF&E) Dedicated to Latest NFV & Communications Technology Advancements

New York, NY, November 14, 2013 --(PR.com)-- IEEE GLOBECOM 2013, the premier international conference dedicated to global communications, will host its 56th annual event within historic Atlanta, Georgia and only a short distance from numerous national attractions such as The Georgia Aquarium, The William Breman Jewish Heritage Museum, LEGOLAND® Discovery Center, Stone Mountain Park, Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site, Jimmy Carter Presidential Library & Museum and Cyclorama & Civil War Museum.

Held from December 9 – 13, 2013 at the Downtown Atlanta Hilton and Towers in Atlanta, Georgia, the comprehensive schedule for IEEE GLOBECOM 2013 will include more than 1,500 presentations offered under the Power of Global Communications theme. Throughout the five-day international conference, hundreds of leading technical and business communications authorities will provide their insights and share their global expertise in key research areas ranging from next generation broadband, wireless, multimedia, image and voice advancements to e-Health, Internet of Things (IoT), game theory, power-line, satellite, space, green and social networking communications.

After a full day of tutorials and workshops on Monday, December 9, IEEE GLOBECOM 2013 will then officially commence on Tuesday, December 10 with the first of three days filled with emerging technology technical symposia, panel sessions, demonstrations, works-in-progress and industrial fora. Already included within this comprehensive agenda are the keynotes of:

· Jessica Rosenworcel, Commissioner, Federal Communications Commission (FCC), who will speak on “Wireless Communications: A Regulatory Perspective” and how the government can encourage innovation and network topology breakthroughs

IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
