IoT Week 2019

Join Ericsson and Grundfos in Aarhus from June 17 - 21

Gain control of connected assets with IoT

Devices are becoming more and more connected. As a result, a shift is happening across enterprises around the world. Companies are changing the way that products and services are being delivered. Soon, approximately 29 billion devices will become connected, and managing such massive amounts of connections and subscriptions will be a challenge for communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises alike. Enterprises will need visibility across all of those devices and the CSPs will need to manage them at an even higher level, ensuring reliable control, connectivity and intelligence for devices across different cities, states and even countries.

Ericsson is working with industry leaders to help make connectivity easy. Ericsson is joining Grundfos, a global leader in advanced water pump solutions, at IoT Week to showcase our collaboration on global connectivity for enterprises and CSPs. Grundfos’ expertise from its customers, coupled with our expertise in connectivity, gives us an opportunity to work towards an advanced IoT solution to help with connectivity management.

Visit us at IoT Week to learn how:

  • Connectivity Management helps enterprises gain the power to control and track all of the IoT devices and networked assets on a national, regional and global level with IoT Accelerator.
  • Service providers can provide their customers with connectivity management.
