From Social Networks to Machine Networks
The 6th Xyna Konferenz of the GIP Research Institute took place on 23rd November 2011 in the Kurhaus, Wiesbaden. Central subject was the future and importance of Corporate Communication Services – Corporate Communication Services Reloaded – in particular under the influence of sinking margins and missing perspectives for private customers as well as the new perspectives and chances which arise(surrender) from the area of Machine-to-Machine communication. In this context, the role and positioning of the cable providers in this attractive market environment was also discussed.
About these and other topics, more than 140 participants from telecommunications, IT, energy and industry discussed with the invited experts from Vodafone Global, DB Kommunikationstechnik, Bundesverband Smart City e.V. and FutureManagementGroup. Through the new conference concept “More talking – less listening” exchanges and conversations were benefitted, so that the Xyna Konferenz could present once more as an important and established conference serial for the market of Smart Networks.
After the official conference part, the GIP AG invited to the evening event in the festively decorated winter garden to a specialties buffet and comfortable conclusion.
Many thanks to all participants and speakers for this exciting, interesting and successful conference day!
