LAHORE ( HAFEEZ REPORT )
Telenor Pakistan held Pakistan’s first “Internet of Things” Expo in Lahore this weekend, where several consumer and business solutions using cellular internet for machine to machine interaction were presented.
“Internet of Things” primarily means devices and solutions that use internet for automated communication among each other (without requiring any human input). Such devices are usually intelligent based on the information they get from other connected devices and this is how they perform their designated tasks intelligently by deciding in real time.
IOT_IMG_9476 As Irfan Wahab Khan, CMO Telenor Pakistan, explained in his keynotes, think of an alarm device that can intelligently wake you up 30 minutes ahead of scheduled time because it knows that traffic on your planned route is slow and it might take you longer to reach your meeting.
This is exactly how connected devices use information shared by other devices in real time to intelligently perform their tasks in a better way.
Speakers at Expo, that included Dr. Ismail Shah, Chairman PTA, Irfan Wahab Khan, CMO Telenor Pakistan, Mikael Lindholm of Telenor Connexion, Mian Mohammad Mansha, Chairman MCB and Nishat Group, Dr. Umar Saif, Chairman PITB, Ahmed Bilal Masud, Deputy CEO Huawei Pakistan, Farhan Shahzad of IBM, Kam Eng Liang, head of M2M at DiGi and Michael Foley, CEO Telenor Pakistan, explained how Internet of Things can bring a revolutionary change in our lives.
