The exhibitor lineup at the show includes Software AG, which will be presenting IoT applications ranging from smart devices for smart homes to technologies for tomorrow’s digitally integrated factories. "Our specialty is the Internet of Things, an area of technology which over the next few years will fundamentally change the way people live and work. One example of our work in this area is our involvement in ADAMOS, an alliance of world-leading machine manufacturers that is mapping out the future of digital production. We will be demonstrating the immense potential of IoT technologies at CEBIT with an extensive lineup of amazing showcases," says Software AG CEO Karl-Heinz Streibich.
Of course, as Vodafone Germany CEO Dr. Hannes Ametsreiter points out, realizing the full potential of the Internet of Things will not be possible without high-performance networks that support high data rates. "Making the Internet of Things a reality will necessitate massive investment in state-of-the-art fiber-optic technology. But then, the IoT is also mobile, which is why we are already pushing ahead at full speed with the development of the 5G mobile telephony standard. 5G and its extremely low latencies are vital to real-time communication and hence applications like autonomous driving."
