The Internet of Things (IoT) has witnessed significant growth and development in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in recent years. As a country known for its technological advancements and ambitious visions, the UAE has actively embraced IoT as a key element in its pursuit of becoming a smart nation. The UAE government supports the growth of IoT through initiatives like the UAE AI Strategy 2031, which integrates AI with various sectors, including IoT. The government has implemented regulatory frameworks through the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) to facilitate IoT development. Additionally, the government's focus on building smart cities, particularly in Dubai, has created a favorable environment for IoT growth, with a comprehensive IoT strategy in sectors such as healthcare, education, transportation, and public utilities. 

The combination of IoT and 5G technology in the UAE is expected to drive innovation, improve efficiency, and enhance the overall quality of life for its residents. As the UAE continues to invest in the development of 5G infrastructure and promote IoT adoption, we can anticipate a future where smart cities, connected industries, and advanced IoT applications become the norm, solidifying the UAE's position as a leader in the digital transformation landscape.


The event is open to professionals seeking bespoke solutions and a comprehensive approach to IoT challenges, particularly 4.0 industry professionals, such as integrators, manufacturing, transportation, healthcare, and smart cities developers. By attending, participants get the opportunity to network with like-minded individuals and contribute to the development of innovative solutions in the field of 5Gof IoT. Interested participants can register for the event and Tech Students are also welcome to attend.

Nadjib AITSAADI, Head of NGN Team, UVSQ Paris-Saclay commented: “The 5G-mMTC platform is the first tech environment in France that brings together all the key players covering the end-to-end value chain: IoT, sensors, communication chips, 5G cellular networks, embedded virtualization, cloud business applications, cybersecurity, systems of systems, integrators and research laboratories for innovation and R&D”.
