Web Summit – Dublin 2015



Interviewer Steve Nicholls (TechXB) with Fintan McGovern (CEO) of Firmwave

The next wave of innovation is the "Internet of Things". In 2000, there were 200M connected devices globally, today there are 10 Billion and there will be an estimated 50 Billion by 2020. As the Internet of Things expands, with everything from thermostats to cameras to cars plugging into the net, so does the need for machines that can handle those connections. 94% of all businesses have seen a return on their IoT investments yet the majority of consumers (87%) haven’t heard of the term "Internet of Things". Firmwave can accelerate your design and deployment of IoT and wearable devices in vertical markets such as Medical, Industrial and Manufacturing. Firmwave provide embedded expertise, development and platforms that deliver connected, secure and remotely managed IoT devices vastly reducing time to market.
