However the underlying technologies of IoT are nothing new as M2M communication existed since the birth of Internet

That year, it will be roughly equal to the number of smartphones, smart TVs, tablets, wearable computers, and PCs combined. In the consumer space, many products and services have already crossed over into the IoT, including kitchen and home appliances, parking, RFID, lighting and heating products, and a number of applications in Industrial Internet.

Estimates for Internet of Things or IoT market value are massive, since by definition the IoT is an integrated and diffused layer of devices, sensors, and computing power that overlays entire consumer, business-to-business, and government industries. The IoT will account for an increasingly huge number of connections: 1.9 billion devices today, and 9 billion by 2018.


According to Forbs; Conversations about the IoT are (and have been for several years) taking place all over the world as we seek to understand how this will impact our lives. We are also trying to understand what the many opportunities and challenges are going to be as more and more devices start to join the IoT. For now the best thing that we can do is educate ourselves about what the IoT is and the potential impacts that can be seen on how we work and live.

As the first dedicated platform in Kuwait to address the enormous potential of the IoT revolution, the 1st edition of IoT Kuwait 2017 is a transformational platform for addressing challenges and identifying real opportunities within the IoT landscape.

Main objective of the Conference is to introduce emerging technological options, platforms and case studies of IoT implementation in home & city automation (smart homes and cities), Industrial Internet, healthcare, Govt., Mobile Cellular and other areas.
