Keynote 1: The impact of the machine-to-machine revolution

Room: 2E07
Chair: Abderrahim Benslimane (University of Avignon & LIA/CERI, France)


Matt Hatton is a widely respected wireless industry expert with 14 years' experience at the cutting edge of telecoms research. His current role is as Director at Machina Research, a specialist research and consultancy firm focusing on the M2M, IoT and mobile broadband markets. Prior to establishing Machina Research, Matt was Program Manager at Yankee Group focusing on the mobile services market in EMEA and most recently at Analysys Mason he was Research Director managing all research on the telco services market, with a particular focus on mobile broadband and other new emerging services and business models. He has provided strategic advice to numerous executives (including C-level executives) at mobile operators, vendors and other players in the mobile value chain, on the deployment and marketing of mobile products and services. This has included market sizing and forecasting, providing competitor intelligence, and advising on strategies for value-added services, M2M, mobile broadband, customer retention, pricing and fixed-mobile convergence. He also has substantial experience in carrying out business case assessments for mobile operators, including due diligence on service deployments. Matt is widely quoted in both trade publications (such as Total Telecom, Light Reading, Mobile Today, New Media Age and Mobile Europe) and the wider national and international press (including BBC, The Financial Times, CNN, The Telegraph and The Independent). He also speaks frequently at conferences and acts as a judge for a number of prestigious awards (including the GSMA's Global Mobile Awards). Matt holds an MSc in Telecommunications (Distinction) from University College London.


Over the next 10 years there will be an explosion in the number of machine-to-machine (M2M) connected devices. Embedded connectivity will start to permeate more and more of our lives, from smart meters and pay-as-you-drive insurance to connected heart rate monitors and digital billboards. Matt’s presentation will examine the opportunity for M2M, the barriers that it faces and the impact that 24 billion connected devices will have on the way we live and do business.

Room: 2E07
Chair: Samuel Pierre (Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal, Canada)


Nen-Fu (Fred) Huang received the Ph.D. degree in computer science from National Tsing Hua University (NTHU), Taiwan, in 1986. From 1997-2000, he was the Chairman of Department of Computer Science, NTHU and since 2008, he is a Distinguished Professor of NTHU. His current research interests include Cloud/p2p-based interactive video streaming technologies, network security, high-speed switch/router, mobile and wireless networks, and IPv6 enable sensor networks. From 1997-2003, he was the Editor of the Journal of Information Science and Engineering. He also served as the Guest Editor of IEEE JAC special issue on "Wireless overlay networks based on Mobile IPv6” in 2004. Since 2008, he serves as Editor of the Journal of Security and Communication Networks. He received the Outstanding Teaching Award from the NTHU in 1993, 1998, and 2008, the Outstanding University/Industrial Cooperating Award from Ministry of Education, Taiwan in 1998, and Outstanding IT people Award from ITmonth, ROC in 2002.

This talk introduces the design and implementation of a cloud-based video streaming service platform with with Scalable video coding (SVC), Multiple-view coding (MVC), and low-latency p2p (LLp2p) technologies. This platfrom is dynamically constructed via the virtual machines of cloud service providers and tends to provide both video streaming broadcast service and interactive multimedia services. The problem of using minimum number of virtual machines to serve all the clients with different QoS requirements is addressed. The SVC technology is uesd to provide different types of clients, such as smart mobile phones, PCs, and TVs. Also the MVC technology is used to deliver 3D video streaming. A low-latency p2p (LLp2p) mechanism is also addressed to provide interactive multimedia services, such as video conferences and on-line classrooms. Some interesting research issues on emerging cloud-based video/audio services will also be addressed.
