Executive Summary

•Mobile broadband services are expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of percent between 2011 and 2017 and reach $ million in 2017.
•The most relevant drivers for this growth are the increasing demand for mobility by users, the increasing penetration of smart devices, and convergent services and bundles.
•According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) estimates, all economies of Latin America are expected to grow from 2012 to 2017.
•The average GDP growth rate in the period is likely to be approximately 4.0percent, and this should be a relevant driver for mobile broadband services growth.
•However, regulatory delays on important decisions relating to the mobile market, such as spectrum auctions and policies to stimulate and regulate competition, remain an issue that restrains development.
•Lack of competition in some areas and market concentration in a number of countries are considered the main barriers.
•Currently, the top three groups (América Móvil, Telefónica S.A., and Telecom Italia) comprise percent of the market in terms of revenue.
•In 2011, 3G network infrastructure deployment and coverage expansion continued to be among the top priorities of mobile operators.
•About million mobile broadband connections were provided in 2011, and 2017 is expected to end with million connections.
•Upgrades of HSPA networks to HSPA+, and also LTE commercial launches are expected to boost mobile broadband as a substitute for fixed broadband.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
