Singapore, May 29, 2014 - (ACN Newswire) - A noteworthy highlight of CommunicAsia2014, industry's preferred information and communication technology business event in Asia that will be held at Marina Bay Sands Convention Centre from 17 - 20 June, SatComm2014 will once again unveil the largest contingent of satellite companies witnessed at any single ICT trade event in Asia.

Satellites play an integral role in the global communications ecosystem, by providing global connectivity that allows the instantaneous transmission of data and information across the world. Billions of people, governments, militaries and businesses rely on satellites every day to send and receive critical information, consume global news and media, communicate and travel. Its efficient, secure and reliable nature has transformed how governments and industries communicate and operate.

Satellites have also made instant communication and point to point data connectivity possible in rural and remote corners of the world. This is especially important for international relief efforts, military, oil and gas, maritime and aviation industries. The satellite industry therefore plays a key role in empowering multiple industry sectors with the necessary network and connection needed for users to stay connected constantly, especially with the growing trend of mobility and connectivity in recent years.

SatComm2014 will feature more than 160 global and regional satellite and satellite-based communication enterprises present this year.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic • Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it’s a mix of architectural style...
