BaseN’s Vice President, Product Management, Mr. Anders Viden presents BaseN’s inherently scalable Internet of Things (IoT) platform in a panel discussion about smart cities. The topic of the panel discussion is: The City as a Platform. Building a System of Systems. The Smart City Exchange event spans out from February 28 to March 2 and takes place in Mexico City. 

With its inherent scalability, BaseN Platform is the perfect base for a Smart City and its verious applications. BaseN already powers numerous sustainability initiatives such as the smart buildings Adjutantti and Spinelli in Finland and VolkerWessels’ zero energy houses in the Netherlands and Germany.

Smart Cities, powered through the IoT, are the cities of the future. They are expected to be the key to combining a sustainable future with continued economic growth and job creation regardless of the size and development stage of the city.

To celebrate the 8th annual IoT day, global full stack IoT operator BaseN is happy to host an IoT meetup at BaseN HQ at Salmisaarenaukio 1, 00180 Helsinki. BaseN invites all IoT enthusiasts to join the event and listen to interesting industry presentations.

BaesN also recommends reading the ten commandments for Products in the IoT era developed by BaseN President and CEO, Pasi Hurri.

The Internet of Things Council established the global IoT day on April 9, 2010. Ever since, the IoT Day has served globally as an opportunity to celebrate the constant evolution of the IoT and to host meetings for IoT enthusiasts and industry experts to meet and discuss.

With the rising demand for smart energy and energy-efficient homes in the times of the Internet of Things, BaseN offers a platform for creating massively scalable, fault tolerant, secure and globally available IoT applications with unprecedented speed and flexibility.

BaseN’s Vice President, Product Management, Mr. Anders Viden will be a speaker at the IoT Forum’s Roundtable on Energy taking place on March 15th at Nokia, 200 S. Mathilda Avenue, Sunnyvale, CA 94086.

BaseN is already a platform for numerous sustainability initiatives like Adjutantti and Spinelli in Finland and VolkerWessels in the Netherlands and Germany.

During  Earth Hour, individuals and businesses pay attention to their energy consumption and try to reduce it to a minimum by for example switching off unnecessary lights for one hour.

Earth Hour is the milestone of WWF‘s movement that started in 2007 in Sydney. On March 24, Earth Hour is now celebrated in more than 180 countries and territories as a global momentum and will once again unite millions of people around the world to show their commitment to the planet.

“With a full off grid home, I can disconnect from the grid during Earth Hour or any other hour or month throughout the year”, says Pasi Hurri, President and CEO of BaseN. “We at BaseN believe in evidence-based sustainability and fully support initiatives like Earth Hour.”

In 2010, the Internet of Things Council decided to establish a global IoT day on April 9. Since then, the IoT Day has served globally as an opportunity for everyone within the industry to celebrate the constant evolution of the IoT.

BaseN is hosting an IoT Meetup for all IoT enthusiasts out there. Confirmed speakers so far are Kaj Niemi from BaseN and Erno Aapa from Eliot. You can register to our event right here. In the meantime, we have collected some of our recent pieces on the Internet of Things as must-read articles for IoT trailblazers:

BaseN actively participates the Bled eConference in Slovenia 2018. We are proud to announce that Michael Hartman, Country Manager, Czech Republic, will present the role of spime in eHealth as driver of the digital transformation.

The 31st Bled eConference with the theme “Digital Transformation: Meeting the Challenges” will be held on June 17-20, 2018 in Bled, Slovenia. The idea of the conference is to create a creative atmosphere for researchers, government, industry/business representatives and technology providers to discuss, network and share their knowledge about the Internet of Things.

BaseN Platform enables remote tracking, secure storage, real time analysis and control of patient health measures, such as blood pressure, heart rate, glucose levels, body temperature, weight, as well as sleep and activity data coming from wearable technology devices. Patients can store all their measurements in their personal health spimes, with the possibility to easily share this data with doctors, nurses, insurance companies, family members, and other players in the digital healthcare service environment.

After Amsterdam, Helsinki and Torino, BaseN now welcomes all spime forerunnerts and IoT experts to Tallinn, Estonia. The conference will take place at the Energy Discovery Center from September 11 to September 12, 2018 and registration is now open.

At the core of the event are spimes and how they enable digitalization and the transformation from product to service in any industry. SPIME2018 will focus on the IoT-driven future, ranging from smart homes to smart factories, from connected work sites to easy mass customization. This year, a special focus will be on taking spime to individual manufactured products, introducing enhanced and eternal customer relationships.

IoT developers are again invited to the annual SPIMEathon to gain experience in working with one of the world’s leading IoT Platforms which provides the developer with the capability to create services that can adapt automatically over time.

From a handful of data to a worldful of data. What does that mean for businesses, their underlying architectures, their intellectual property right? And ultimately, everyday life?

AI and IoT are rapidly developing and integrating into business and society in general. Spimes will have a fundamental effect in this development which BaseN CEO Pasi Hurri will illuminate in his keynote on August 22.

“Artificial intelligence requires computing which happens somewhere. With the advent of smaller and smaller devices having digital backends, twins and eventually spimes, a new kind of distributed architecture is required to perpetually manage our new cyber physical environment”, says Pasi Hurri, BaseN President and CEO.

Artificial intelligence, robotics & the Internet of Things (IoT) is the latest trending technology in many fields especially in industries like manufacturing, automation, control systems, healthcare, energy, transport, defense, space and data mining to give some examples. AI & IoT will be a common platform to enable the transformation from physical products to intelligent services in any industry.

BaseN exhibits at the Singapore International Cyber Week (SICW) 2018, taking place from September 18 to September 20 2018 in Singapore. SICW is the region’s most established cybersecurity event and offers the ideal platform to discuss, network, strategise and form partnerships in the cybersecurity space, with an emphasis on international cooperation, cyber ecosystem development and ever-evolving innovation.

BaseN will present its global full stack IoT platform, processing millions of transactions per second. BaseN will also showcase how spime, the permanent logical brain and memory of any physical thing will disrupt the traditional business models and transform products into intelligent services in any industry.
