APAC IoT Innovation Summit - Afternoon Session Two - GSMA Mobile 360 Series

APAC IoT Innovation Summit – Afternoon Session Two


Date & Time

Thursday, 26 Sep

15:45 - 17:30



In last MWC Barcelona on Feb 2019, GSMA announced 110 Mobile IoT (NB-IoT/LTE-M) networks deployed worldwide and 37 are coming from Asia Pacific across 15 countries. Global cellular LPWA network connections were primarily driven by APAC that accounts for nearly 97% of all NB-IoT. These Mobile IoT technologies already merged into 5G standards that further empower low latency, massive IoT and large bandwidth.

With these new technologies, innovators, enterprise and government can accelerate the digital transformation and progress toward the digital societies. It could be enable new business models, new business processes, increase business efficiency, greater innovation and drive improved visibility across an organization.

Welcome to attend the summit

Session 6: IoT Use case in 5G

China, South Korea, and Japan are at the forefront of fifth-generation network deployment in APAC. It would be very interesting to see how the early deployments in these countries. What are their use cases and focus?


Industrial IoT: 5G technologies provide the network characteristics essential for manufacturing. Low latency and high reliability are essential to support critical applications. High bandwidth and connection density secure ubiquitous connectivity. The mobile 5G technology allows for higher flexibility, lower cost, and shorter lead times for factory floor production reconfiguration, layout changes, and alterations.
