Singapore – As Asia continues down the path of digital transformation and its cities get increasingly connected, CommunicAsia and EnterpriseIT 2017 will add brand new feature zones to address the growing need for data security and the budding startup culture in the region. In addition, the event will also see a bigger augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) segment as the show grows to occupy the whole of Marina Bay Sands for the first time.
With the Cybersecurity Market Report predicting worldwide spending on cyber security to top US$1 trillion for the five-year period from 2017 to 2021, Asia seeing a record US$23.4 billion in startup funding in the second quarter of 20161, and worldwide revenues for the AR and VR market expected to reach US$162 billion in 20202, the new zones are timely additions to the event that will be held from 23 – 25 May 2017, at the Marina Bay Sands, Singapore. Key trending technologies and network infrastructure that are the pillars of smart cities, businesses and lifestyles, such as borderless broadband, Internet of Things, cloud and data-centric solutions, satellite communications and enterprise mobility, will continue to be featured prominently at CommunicAsia and EnterpriseIT 2017.
Exhibiting at NXT@CommunicAsia, the event’s showcase of transformative technology, is CryptoGuard, a Swedish developer of content protection. The company, which has experienced substantial growth in recent years, will be demonstrating its DRM platform and new OTT solution CryptoLITE as well as its proven advanced CAS platform. In today’s volatile business climate, there is a pressing need for digital transformation across vertical industries.
