The Smart Society is a collaboration of M2M communications giving everyday devices the ability to share important data points and even make intelligent decisions. Intelligence might come in the form of air conditioners automatically cycling down during peak usage through a ZigBee Demand Response Application. Intelligence might be locating urgently needed medical equipment via RFID. Intelligence might even be smart business parks that optimize traffic patterns with load sensing traffic lights.

The common theme is that industries are utilizing existing networks via numerous forms, to process data, draw conclusions, control devices, and build impactful applications. Some of the most predominate leaders of M2M Communications are companies working in the Smart Energy space. What does the future hold for the smart grid technology transformation and how will the wireless and telecom ecosystem play a role in it?

Energy transmission and distribution companies have tele-control networks which are required to meet increasing needs and reliability targets. Energy distribution and transmission companies implementing the management of these tele-control networks are facing challenges already addressed and solved by communications companies over the last decade or so. Come meet our distinguished panel of executives, many of whom have leveraged their telecom backgrounds to be impactful in the smart grid revolution.
