Mr. Oscar Fafian (Euskaltel) will be speaking on "IoT Driving the 5th Play" - a Telco Approach on Initiating IoT-Based Service Development Systems (Health, SmartCities, Industry 4.0, Smartliving).

Now that most Telco’s have a 4 Play offer (internet, voice, mobile and television), IoT opens a new opportunity for deliverying new services in both residential and bussines market. It’s the 5th Play, Connected / Smart Things.

Ms. Alicia Asin (Libelium) will be speaking on "Reflections on the IoT on its way to 2020: Risks and opportunities of the IoT towards a legacy of greater transparency and democracy"

Opportunities and challenges for Smart Cities are moving continuously from nowadays to 2020. In the latest years most cities have become smart applying Internet of Things with different aims such as transport monitoring, measuring pollution levels, water conservation or finding parking spots. This could be called “a dream of efficiency” because, although some cities have adopted sensor technology, most of them are still discovering it. Citizens are worried about pollution and climate change so that they want their governments to take environmental responsibility. - In this speech, Alicia Asín analyses the evolution of Internet of Things application in Smart Cities: from the first uncertain business models to these days in which the technology, economic and social boundaries are proved. In Smart Cities version 2.0, the citizens are driving this time. They demand quality-of-life rates. Actions initiated by citizens give rise to ad hoc, grass roots efforts, where citizens charge themselves with detecting risk. Smart Cities and the Internet of Things allow people to interact with their environment and the city and regional governments in new ways.Open data initiatives make municipal activities transparent. This is an important guarantee of democracy, and could be the greatest legacy of the IoT.
