Asia's premier industry event for the ICT and Enterprise sectors highlights growth opportunities in this fast-integrating ecosystem

SINGAPORE, 8 NOVEMBER 2012 - Next year will see CommunicAsia and EnterpriseIT, Asia's leading ICT industry event, bring together hundreds of companies as demand for greater connectivity increases, new technologies continue to be deployed and more players come into play. Both shows - held from 18 to 21 June 2013, will be housed at the Marina Bay Sands and have already witnessed strong exhibition space bookings by returning and new exhibitors, seven months ahead of the event.

Satellite connectivity still reigns in today's telecoms landscape
CommunicAsia and EnterpriseIT together, is Asia's most unique industry event, highlighting current debate and live demonstrations across the latest technology breakthroughs and applications, ranging from cloud, mobile, broadband, security, satellite, M2M and vertical solutions.

These companies will form part of SatComm2013, which is incorporated with CommunicAsia2013 and EnterpriseIT2013. SatComm2013 is the choice business platform in Asia for the satellite communications industry, and exhibitors are leveraging this to provide turnkey solutions that address critical issues surrounding Asia's telecoms ecosystem, whilst heightening their presence in the region's robust marketplace.

Many satellite exhibitors are also returning in 2013 to increase their presence at the show and have invested in expanding their exhibition booth space. Intelsat, which has exhibited at the event for the past ten years, will again be supporting 2013's event, with Mr. Terry Bleakley, Intelsat's RVP, Asia Pacific Sales, commenting: "CommunicAsia and EnterpriseIT are truly international shows in Asia where business professionals across a range of industries come together in one place.

"The task of ensuring CommunicAsia and EnterpriseIT constant evolve to stay relevant and match the pace of the fast changing business and technology landscapes remains top priority," Mr. Wong enthuses.

Conference will address key business concerns surrounding satellite networks
The CommunicAsia2013 Summit will ride the next wave with the ICT community, providing a dedicated platform for industry leaders and professionals to share and discuss key issues, trends and challenges in the industry. The SatComm Evolution track, a part of CommunicAsia2013 Summit, will bring together Asian and global satellite operators as well as suppliers of satellite technology to discuss vital business issues that are driving the industry today, and transforming the business for tomorrow. This track already boasts several confirmed speaking companies, such as Erez Antebi, CEO, Gilat Satellite Networks; Ramesh Ramaswarmy, Vice President of Sales, Hughes; and Pierre-Jean Beylier, CEO, Speedcast; amongst many others.

Key areas that will be addressed include the future of satellite businesses; determining which business models will be most suitable to monetise new technologies; and solutions to meet the demands of the vertical markets.

In addition to SatComm, the Conference will also feature focused forums and workshops that will bring to light the most thought provoking issues as well as offer experts' insights on future business landscapes in relation to broadband evolution, M2M, SatComm Telecom CEM, Cloud Computing, enterprise mobility, and mobile marketing services and commerce.

Three largest industry events of its kind in Asia at one venue
BroadcastAsia2013, Asia's largest integrated event for the pro-audio, film and TV industries, will showcase a global array of the newest, ground-breaking technologies for these industry verticals. In addition, the exhibition will also cast a spotlight on the myriad of applications, equipment and solutions developed for Multi Streaming, Hybrid Broadcast Broadband TV (HbbTV), Playout Services, Over The Top (OTT), Cloud Broadcasting and Digital Radio.

A host of industry luminaries already signed up to the BroadcastAsia2013 International Conference will address key issues surrounding OTT, the adoption of DVB-T2 and T2 lite, bandwidth restrictions within Asia, transmission quality, and how technology is converging in gaming and learning through Smart TV adoption.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
