CanCon Podcast Ep. 14: What’s the deal with IoT?


The CanCon podcast returns, as not even a rampant case of the flu can keep us from delivering hot, fresh pod goodness to Canadians listening coast to coast.

This week, we dedicate the entire podcast to one subject: IoT, or the Internet of Things. But is IoT one subject, one industry, or a blanket term for a myriad number of devices, technologies, products, and verticals? And how are Canadians adopting those products, in both the smart homes and businesses of the future? Are IoT customers (and IoT providers) picking the right platforms, or is there no right platform yet for IoT. Telus has released two recent reports on IoT in the home and business, but can the numbers lie? And how do they stack up to the U.S.?

Tune in as the CanCon podcast team is joined by special guests – Jerry Leong, Executive Vice President of Business Development at Fleet Complete, Rahul Raj, Vice President of Marketing and E-Commerce at ecobee, and Stephen Eyre, Director of TELUS’ IoT Partner Ecosystem – to answer these questions.
