Conference Abstract
 
The topics of discussion at this conference will start with the global view of the trends and opportunities across Pacific Ocean. Then, the state of the art of the technology intended for the connected world will be presented covering from the devices at the edge of the network such as the sensors, the system application of the sensors deployed at the edge of the network, the big data analytics from the prediction modeling to business intelligence solutions, from the framework for the security in the connected world to the software defined network (SDN) controller in volume deployment. In summary, the speakers of this conference will share their insight into the connected world from one end (at the edge of the network) to the other end (in the heart of the cloud).
