IEEE WF-IoT Keynote: SK Telecom’s IoT Biz and R&D - Realizing a Smarter World
Alex Jinsung Choi, Ph.D., EVP and Head of ICT R&D, SK Telecom
Addressing the importance of the Internet of Things (IoT), how serious SK Telecom is about IoT, and why other global MNOs (Managed Network Operators), service providers and fixed operators are developing strategies for it. The sky is the only limit for IoT applications and services, which currently include remote maintenance and control, automotive railway, metering, security, retail payments, healthcare and so much more. Industry-wise collaboration and convergence of overall technologies are key to making IoT successful – no one single company can solve or provide the right IoT solutions, so it’s critically important for industry to come together, including open innovation and implementing global standards.
