REDWOOD CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, ahead of the 5th Annual Global Internet of Things Day, Silver Spring Networks, Inc. (NYSE:SSNI) announced that Silver Spring President and CEO, Mike Bell, will deliver a keynote address at Internet of Things World at the Santa Clara Convention Center on Tuesday, May 10 at 12:20 pm PDT. Mr. Bell will highlight the IoT opportunities for developers, entrepreneurs, and industry leaders across different verticals through StarfishTM, Silver Spring’s wireless IPv6 network service for the IoT. Starfish enables energy service providers, cities, commercial enterprises and developers to leverage service level agreements (SLAs) to access a proven, reliable, secure and scalable IoT network with over 22.9 million devices delivered to five continents.
“As we celebrate Global IoT Day, we encourage those looking to realize the full potential of this transformation to choose a proven platform that emphasizes features – such as reliability, scalability and security – that the IoT market requires," said Mr. Bell. “We believe the IoT is the greatest innovation opportunity in the world today, the foundation on which cities and businesses of the future will be built.”
According to McKinsey Global Institute, IoT has a potential economic impact of up to $11.1 trillion per year in 2025, and as much as $1.7 trillion per year in 2025 in cities alone. Starfish will first be available in San Jose, Chicago and San Antonio in North America; in Bristol, Copenhagen and Glasgow in Europe; and in Kolkata, India.
