5G-IoT China

13 October 2015 08:00 - 15 October 2015 17:00

The International M2M Council — the global trade association for Machine-to-Machine Communications – invites network operators, telecom infrastructure vendors, IoT solutions providers, and enterprise adopters of M2M technology to join China’s leading mobile operators at a single forum to discuss the concurrent development of 5G standards and large-scale deployment of M2M Systems & IoT Applications in the Chinese market.

China became the world’s largest M2M market in 2013, when it tallied almost 40 million connections (20% of the world total), and it’s growing at an astounding 50% annually. And no country has been more aggressive in promoting 5G research, with government’s 863-5G project calling for the development of network architecture that provides 10-fold increases in spectrum capacity and energy efficiency to be delivered in two years.

Experts at China Mobile (the world’s largest M2M network operator) believe that planning for IoT and 5G go hand-in-hand – indeed, anticipated improvements in 5G network capacity, security, and energy efficiency are requisites for enabling and sustaining the forecast growth of connected devices and embedded systems.

Join the IoT and 5G R&D teams, as well as M2M field-business units from China Mobile and China Unicom for a 2-day informative, interactive, industry-driven forum on tomorrow’s networked ecosystems.

Showcase your products and services and share your own strategic technology roadmap with delegates from the Chinese and global wireless vendor communities, and Chinese enterprise adopter markets, including smart cities, energy, automotive, logistics, and healthcare.


5G-IoT China’s technical conference programme will be hands-on and commercially focused. Keynotes and plenary sessions will address the unifying technological concepts and market enablers for M2M Communications Systems, IoT Application Environments, and 5G Infrastructure. Tracks will feature technical research presentations, expert roundtable discussions, market research reviews.

Sessions will include:

  • Device-Level Design: distributed intelligence, energy efficiency, life-cycle management
  • Network-Level Cellular & RF Engineering: spectral efficiency, HetNets, MIMO, ultra-high frequency
  • Data Architecture & Systems Integration: Big Data, mass M2M in the cloud, middleware, billing
  • Security: end-to-end, trusted environments, encryption, regulatory compliance
  • Business Use-Cases: cost savings, subscription revenue, disruptive models
  • The PRC’s 5-Year Plan: making the PRC the epicenter of IoT
  • Telecom Roundtable: top carriers from PRC, US, and Europe discuss lessons from 3G & 4G


A group of technical and business experts from the global IoT ecosystem have already committed to participate, including key executives from ARM, Deutsche Telekom, IBM, Oracle, and Telit. Meanwhile, IMC is actively recruiting solutions providers that have already teamed with China Mobile overseas in the 863-5G initiative, including Alcatel Lucent, Ericsson, Samsung, and NTT DoCoMo.
