SatComm2014 to Showcase the Latest Developments in Asia's Satellite Industry



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.

In his keynote at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Director of IoT Engineering at Citrix and co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, focused on building an IoT platform and company. He provided a behind-the-scenes look at Octoblu’s platform, business, and pivots along the way (including the Citrix acquisition of Octoblu).
For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
