As the demand for consumer electronics such as tablets and e-readers goes from strength to strength, mobile network operators must contend with a huge increase in multimedia traffic on their networks. What types of consumer electronics are expected to place the most demands on mobile networks? What are the different use cases? How can mobile network operators best meet the growing demand for mobile connectivity while maintaining the same Quality of Service that consumers have come to expect from their electronic devices?

This session will explore the landscape of embedded consumer electronics and the business case for embedding mobile connectivity into consumer electronics devices, and will consider the possible alternatives.
