Rich Nagle, Sr. Technical Sales Engineer at ThingWorx
Rich was part of the panel that discussed about the evolution and future of IoT and M2M
What we can learn from the video interviews with our esteemed speakers is that the potential of the IoT and M2M technology is virtually limitless. Driving adoption of such technology is key but the question is, how do we drive the adoption of IoT technology? Apart from simplifying it for consumers and end-users as well as making the technology more ‘intuitive’, raising awareness and building knowledge is of essence. This is where our Asia IoT Business Platforms play a key and major role. It is the platform where end-users and solution providers convene for two days of knowledge-sharing, exchange, and networking to progress together and bring the future closer.

We will be releasing video snippets of the conference soon! Meanwhile, you can watch our post-event video!
As with other Southeast Asian economic tigers such as Thailand and Malaysia, Indonesia has decided to dive into the concept of ‘Smart Nation’, with Makassar being the first Indonesian city to launch a smart city programme. Following the footsteps of Makassar, Jakarta is next in line in realising the vision of a smart city as the authorities unveiled its Jakarta Smart City Project last December.
Indonesia came in 46th on their readiness for digital commerce according to the 2014 study by The Digital Evolution Index. The nation also came in 122nd in internet connection speed. Despite the apparent lack of soft infrastructure, the market potential in Indonesia for ICT is encouraging; evident from its dynamic and digital-minded young population. Jakarta was the world’s most active city on Twitter in 2014, contributing 254 million tweets which makes up 2.4% of the world’s total. The city came in fourth on Facebook activeness.
Apart from being social media-savvy, Indonesia has launched the Palapa Ring Program which seeks to connect the whole archipelago by high-speed fibre optic cable by 2015. The rapid adoption of new technologies such as cloud computing and the rapid growth of e-businesses are optimistic signs of the nation’s move towards a smarter landscape.
Recognising the emergence of Indonesia in the ICT sector, the Asia M2M IoT Business Platform is returning to the city to give solution providers that are targeting enterprise adoption of M2M technologies an ideal platform for knowledge-exchange, collaboration, and expansion together with end-users across different verticals; from transport and logistics, to banking and finance.
In order to further understand the dynamics of the Indonesia market and to find out more about the latest trends and developments of the IoT and M2M opportunities in Indonesia, we spoke to Mr. Jaka Susanta Vice President (M2M) of Telkomsel, the leading telco in Indonesia.
Telkomsel is the world’s 6th largest cellular operator by number of subscribers and the market leader in Indonesia’s telecommunication industry that serves more than 131 million subscribers. With 69,000 Base Transceiver Stations (BTS), Telkomsel provides the largest network coverage in Indonesia, reaching almost all of Indonesia’s population. As a pioneer in the development of Indonesia’s mobile telecommunication industry and to enter the advanced stage of mobile broadband services, Telkomsel provides cellular services through GSM Dual Band (900 & 1800), GPRS, Wi-Fi, EDGE, 3G, HSDPA, and HSPA+ networks throughout Indonesia, and is testing Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology.
Telkomsel by Telkom Indonesia is returning as the Platinum Sponsor of Asia IoT Business Platform 2015, which will be holding its 5th edition at Fairmont Jakarta, Indonesia from 25-26 August 2015.
We hope to see you in Jakarta in August!
The 4th edition of the Asia IoT Business Platform was held from 28 to 29 May 2015 at Amari Watergate Bangkok, Thailand. It was the first time for the conference to be hosted in Thailand and once again, it was a resounding success. Interesting topics on the latest market trends and developments ranging from waste management and key enablers, to overcoming industry fragmentation, were discussed. Participants also had the chance to network with enterprises and businesses that were present at the event, as well as to marvel at the interesting exhibits put up by our sponsors and exhibitors.
We would like to thank all our sponsors, exhibitors, media partners and press, MICT, as well as all delegates for coming on board and enthusiastically participated in the 2-day conference. This event would not be a success without your support and presence. We hope to see you again, perhaps for the next Asia IoT Business Platform 2015 which will be held at Fairmont Jakarta, Indonesia from 25 to 26 August 2015.
Photos of the conference for both days will be uploaded in due course, as well as the post-event video highlights, so do keep a lookout for the photos and video! Meanwhile, here are some photos we have from day 2!
