Speaking at IWDK

What is this machine and what value can it gain by being connected to the Internet? The audience attending the IT-forum event “Next Generation Internet of Things”, a part of IWDK (Internet Week Denmark), had a couple of minutes to share their thoughts with their neighbors before the answers were revealed.

Seluxit Project Manager, Brian Boyles, then presented the results of Seluxit’s work together with Fremco. The machine’s function?… a fiber-blowing machine that allows empty tubes to be filled with Internet fiber. The value of IoT?… an improved and more cost effective user interface, predictive maintenance, opportunities to charge in a leasing model (machine-as-a-service), and better operator performance with the prospect of automatic operation.

This is just one example of how a product can be transformed by capturing its usage data and applying it to multiple product improvements. As companies continue to realize the value that can be unlocked and improve their product offerings in ways that save ressources, we’re all taking a step in the right direction.

I am a nerdy person who loves going into depth in diverse areas of knowledge. The less I know about a matter, the more I can learn. I always find it exciting to meet people with a different area of expertise from mine. Solving challenging problems is one of the most exciting things to do and working in a group is always more rewarding than working alone. Working with engaged, driven people, women, men, old, young, different professions, cultures, and religions is a great experience. In my work as co-founder of Seluxit, I have gained in-depth knowledge in the field of the Internet of Things, from wireless communication protocols, over cryptology and security, to cloud services and user interfaces. Doing an IPO with Seluxit in 2018 has been a fascinating journey and taught me a lot about business plans, due diligence, PR/IR, and how to professionalize and grow a listed company. Next to my work, I engage very actively in climate change discussions. My main focus is on finding solutions and the effects that CO2 has on our human body. You can find my articles about this subject on Medium and some videos on YouTube. I enjoy running, playing piano, and socializing to balance my busy work life in my free time.
