Fireside chat: Exploring Fibre and IoT Integration

Join us during Techweek24 as we discuss how we can leverage smart locations, IoT and fibre technology to create smarter cities and communities.

Better use of IoT could create at least $2.2 billion in net economic benefit for New Zealand over the next ten years. Traditionally, IoT networks have relied on cellular of licensed networks like Cat-M and NB-IoT for connectivity, however fibre has become key to unlocking a world of possibilities.

Join our panellists, Alison Mackie, Executive Director of NZIoTA, Kriv Naicker, Chair of NZIoTA & Synaptec, and Theresa Corballis, Deputy Chair of NZIoTA & Chorus Business Development Manager, for a fireside chat as we delve into the transformative power of Smart Locations, Fibre Technology, and IoT. Our speakers will explore insights from the recently published report by Chorus titled ‘Solving problems with fibre-enabled IoT’.

This discussion will cover the key findings of a survey commissioned by Chorus in collaboration with the NZ IoT Alliance, revealing where investments in fibre-enabled IoT are being made and how they are transforming the way we solve real world societal and business problems. We’ll explore how external infrastructure assets are evolving into advanced IoT applications, enhancing public services and operational efficiencies, and discuss the pivotal role of fibre in enhancing the capability of IoT networks outside traditional premises, offering unprecedented speed and reliability.

This is your opportunity to stay informed as we highlight examples from leading New Zealand organisations that are pushing the boundaries of technology investments and discuss the increasing relevance of cloud solutions, edge computing, and generative AI in maximising IoT’s potential.
