A couple of months ago, I had the opportunity to speak at TechXLR8 Asia in Singapore. It was a dynamic conference covering topics such as 5G and IoT. I spoke about the convergence of IoT and Real Time Communications, which we’re already starting to see.
Many of us are familiar with the concept of value-added services in communications. That is, what can enhance a basic voice or video call enough that a subscriber would be willing to spend more on it? For example, call recording or conferencing or prepaid charging or even getting a daily joke are examples of that. Or a service provider for example will to spend for ad insertion or codec transcoding.
The same concept of value added services goes for IoT.
