Smart Summit London: oneM2M's Chris Meeting to discuss interoperability's role in the growth of smart cities @ Business Design Centre
WHAT? According to a recent study from Machina Research, cities worldwide could waste as much as $341bn by 2025 if they adopt a fragmented approach towards IoT as opposed to a standardised one, with extra costs from vendor lock-in, lack of interoperability and higher system-integration fees providing a significant drawback to smart city deployments.

To avoid this, city authorities need to identify IoT platforms for their smart city deployments that take a horizontal approach, which would enable different IoT use cases to be supported by the same platform with no concerns over interoperability.

oneM2M’s European vice-chair of marcom Chris Meering is available for briefings at Smart Summit London to discuss how oneM2M’s standards-based, horizontal approach is helping develop platforms that accelerate the growth of the smart cities through collaboration and shared data, delivering a more cost-efficient IoT deployment.

WHO? Chris Meering has been part of the Communications Media Solutions (CMS)- IoT Worldwide Practice since its inception. He is responsible for “Go to Market” activities for the HPE Universal IoT Platform and working across industry verticals within HPE as an IoT subject matter expert.

Chris has nearly 30 years of operational, consulting, and business development experience in the telecommunications sector with companies such as BT, Eircom, and Capgemini before joining HPE. As part of the HPE IoT organisation he has been working closely with HPE’s automotive industry vertical on the area of connected vehicles focusing on applications, services and connectivity.

Meering will speak on a panel entitled ‘Finding New Ways to Collect and Analyse Data for Smart City Service Development’ on Wednesday, September 20 at 10.50am GMT.

Meering will also be speaking on the Thinking in Unison – Collaboration for Cohesive Solutions panel as part of the Smart Cities track on Tuesday, September 19 at 2pm GMT.

WHERE? Business Design Centre, Islington, London, UK
WHEN? Various face-to-face briefing times are available on Tuesday, September 19 and Wednesday, September 20. To arrange a briefing either at the event or over the phone, please email

The network edge is a place where awesome things can happen. The high capacities and low latency at the edge enable life changing applications such as VR & AR, Advanced IoT, connected cars, E-health and much more. In fact, we are only just beginning to uncover the true power of the edge and how to use the technology to deliver applications in an efficient, cost effective way.

This year the MEC Congress will examine how operators are using edge compute to strengthen their networks and deliver a better quality of service to consumers. Also, how enterprises are using the edge to deliver IoT applications, robotics and new services that drive automation and reduce operational costs.

The MEC Congress will showcase the latest and greatest in MEC PoC’s and trials. You will discover how this network superpower is evolving, how it will integrate into traditional networks and how it will enable the applications and services of tomorrow.
