    The Internet of Things (IoT) has become a hot topic, and one that clearly seems related to the broader issues of communications within the enterprise: In many cases, the "Things" will become part of enterprise systems that also provide communications to people and workgroups. But few vendors -- and even fewer enterprises -- have articulated a clear view of how IoT and enterprise communications will affect each other.

    This session will feature discussion and analysis of IoT's impact on enterprise communications. You'll learn how the respective technologies may overlap or converge, and you'll learn about some real-life examples of how Internet-connected sensors and devices are being applied to change communications as we know it.


    - What are some ways IoT is being applied today? And how do such applications impact enterprise communications?

    - Does IoT go beyond simply connecting "things" via cellular LTE? How will IoT's evolution affect the applications and network services we already run today?

    - Will IoT traffic require enterprises to change the way enterprises design their network infrastructures to ensure quality of service for real-time applications?

    - How will IoT affect collaboration? Will it reduce the need for individuals to communicate directly? And how will enterprise mobility evolve as IoT becomes a more dominant force in the enterprise?
