Live streaming video, new corporate partners, global audience, interactive content and expert speaker sessions, to highlight first of series of 'State of Subsea' events in 2014 for leading facilities-based telecom consulting and service company

NEW YORK, Feb. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- APTelecom, a facilities-based telecom consulting and service company specializing in emerging markets, today announced that it will kick-off its 2014 lineup of 'State of Subsea' expert events in Washington, D.C., USA, on Tuesday, April 1st. The event will take place at the world-renowned Corcoran Gallery of Art, from 9 AM to 12 PM EST. The Corcoran is the oldest and largest non-federal art museum in the United States, and has achieved United States National Historic Landmark status.  

The event will be the second 'State of Subsea' expert event that APTelecom has hosted to date, and the first in the 2014 season.

Those who are not able to join in person are invited to attend online via live streaming video courtesy of SubTel Forum, the leading online magazine dedicated to the submarine cable industry, and the exclusive media partner of APTelecom's for the 'State of Subsea' series.

The inaugural 'State of Subsea' event, which took place from New York City in October 2013, generated overwhelmingly positive reviews from the hundreds of people who tuned in to the streaming video feed. The video broadcast had previously never been done before at a subsea industry event.  

For the upcoming 'State of Subsea' event in Washington, D.C., APTelecom welcomes its newest partner, Pacific Telecommunications Council (PTC), which will be supporting the event with a variety of interactive content, promotional efforts, and guest representatives. PTC is a globally respected organization for telecommunications and information and communication technology professionals with interests in the Asia-Pacific region. PTC is perhaps best known for its annual conference in Hawaii, which attracts thousands of telecommunications executives and thought leaders from across the world. 

"We are extremely pleased to usher in a new season of 'State of Subsea' expert events at the Corcoran Art Gallery in Washington, D.C.," said Sean Bergin, Co-Founder of APTelecom. "Alongside our partners SubTel Forum and PTC, we look forward to providing an innovative forum that all in the submarine cable industry can turn to for high-level insights, interactive content, and engaging discussions to drive new levels of collaboration across the entire sector."

The mission of the 'State of Subsea' events are to bring together an eclectic mix of executives, influencers, and leaders from all walks of the submarine cable and telecom industry to address the latest trends, and share expert insights and knowledge on the future of the industry.  The events are highlighted by special breakout panels with industry experts, moderated Q&A sessions, informational exchanges, roundtable discussions on emerging global economic market trends, lucky draws, and more. Complimentary breakfast will be provided to everyone in attendance, courtesy of APTelecom.

"Pacific Telecommunications Council is pleased to partner with APTelecom for their 'State of Subsea' events series," said Sharon Nakama, CEO of Pacific Telecommunications Council. "We look forward to launching this partnership with a successful event in Washington, D.C. that will further the discussions on a broad range of subsea industry topics, and continuing to support the series throughout 2014."

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.
Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...
With the Apple Watch making its way onto wrists all over the world, it’s only a matter of time before it becomes a staple in the workplace. In fact, Forrester reported that 68 percent of technology and business decision-makers characterize wearables as a top priority for 2015. Recognizing their business value early on, FinancialForce.com was the first to bring ERP to wearables, helping streamline communication across front and back office functions. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Kevin Roberts, GM of Platform at FinancialForce.com, will discuss the value of business applications on wearable ...
With the proliferation of connected devices underpinning new Internet of Things systems, Brandon Schulz, Director of Luxoft IoT – Retail, will be looking at the transformation of the retail customer experience in brick and mortar stores in his session at @ThingsExpo. Questions he will address include: Will beacons drop to the wayside like QR codes, or be a proximity-based profit driver? How will the customer experience change in stores of all types when everything can be instrumented and analyzed? As an area of investment, how might a retail company move towards an innovation methodolo...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is about the digitization of physical assets including sensors, devices, machines, gateways, and the network. It creates possibilities for significant value creation and new revenue generating business models via data democratization and ubiquitous analytics across IoT networks. The explosion of data in all forms in IoT requires a more robust and broader lens in order to enable smarter timely actions and better outcomes. Business operations become the key driver of IoT applications and projects. Business operations, IT, and data scientists need advanced analytics t...
While many app developers are comfortable building apps for the smartphone, there is a whole new world out there. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Narayan Sainaney, Co-founder and CTO of Mojio, will discuss how the business case for connected car apps is growing and, with open platform companies having already done the heavy lifting, there really is no barrier to entry.
Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.

As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
Through WebRTC, audio and video communications are being embedded more easily than ever into applications, helping carriers, enterprises and independent software vendors deliver greater functionality to their end users.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

For IoT to grow as quickly as analyst firms’ project, a lot is going to fall on developers to quickly bring applications to market.
