“The real value of a connected world lies in what it can offer customers and businesses in vertical industries,” said Simon Fletcher, CTO of Real Wireless and chair of Future of Wireless International Conference Committee. “But the connected world will only reach its potential if experts from within these industries are actively involved in its development today. This conference will shed light on those existing players and new entrants who are leading efforts to harness wireless within each of the key vertical sectors.”
