Future Seamless Communication: Third FOKUS FUSECO Forum again was a great success

News from Nov. 20, 2012

As in the previous year, despite the tough economic situation, just under 200 telecommunications experts from 28 countries participated at the invitation of Prof. Thomas Magedanz in the FUSECO Forum at the Fraunhofer Institute FOKUS. On November 15 and 16, speakers and participants discussed technologies and applications for the communication networks of the future.

All German mobile network operators were represented as speakers. An emphasis was placed on the convergence of human-to-human (H2H) and machine-to-machine (M2M) communication, as well as the question which smart city applications are thus enabled. 

Aside from talks, tutorials, workshops and panel discussions, demonstrations on the topics M2M communication, software-defined telecommunication networks and WebRTC communication in particular were met with great interest by the participants from industry and science. The fourth FUSECO Forum will take place 28/ 29 November 2013 (tbc) titled “FUSECO Forum 2013 – Smart Communications Platforms for Seamless Smart City Applications”.
