Looking back on the Wavefront Wireless Summit, 2014!

The technology industry is constantly changing. Here at Cisco we not only try to keep up with the latest trends, but dictate the course of them. However, we don’t do this alone. Our insightful partners and customers keep us on our toes.

Year over year, Cisco sponsors various events to ensure that we are constantly communicating with our partners and customers. This year, we were lucky enough to join the Wavefront Wireless Summit in Vancouver.

The summit took place from February 4th – 6th, 2014 and included speakers such as David Robinson, VP Emerging Business at Rogers, Anthony A. Reynolds, Senior Vice President at SAP, and Jeff Seifert, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of Cisco Canada, to name a few.  Events like this put forward-thinking companies in contact with each other to further the wireless experience for end-users.

Jeff’s keynote presentation on the Internet of Things (IoT), captured the Machine-to-Machine (M2M) interest at the event.  He discussed how M2M technologies are a core component of the IoT and how this is driving business innovations. The IoT and Internet of Everything (IoE) phenomenon are bringing together people, process, data and things to generate new capabilities for Canadian companies to reach new heights.

About Cisco Canada

Humans, devices and things are connecting. We’re assimilating a network that is complex, awe-inspiring and powerful. And we’re doing it faster than before. Tomorrow, we’ll work, live, play and learn much differently than we do today. Tomorrow’s world will surface an exciting, dynamic and thoughtful conversation — one that will transpire in the social web among thought leaders, network architects and early adopters. Cisco, the beating heart of this transformation, has the distinct opportunity and authority to lead this conversation. And with Cisco at the heart, more things will be connected, and tomorrow will be built with our imaginations. La connexion entre humains, appareils et objets est en train de s'établir. Nous sommes en voie d'assimiler un réseau complexe, imposant et puissant. Et nous sommes en train de le réaliser beaucoup plus vite qu'avant. Demain, notre travail, nos vies, nos loisirs et nos apprentissages seront très différents d'aujourd'hui. Le monde futur émergera de dialogues dynamiques et éclairés qui surgissent des liens sociaux tissés entre des chefs de file éclairés, des architectes réseau et des pionniers dans l'adoption de technologies. Et avec Cisco au coeur du mouvement, plus de choses se feront connecter qui permettra de construire un avenir fondé sur la richesse de notre imagination.
