LONDON--Informa Telecoms & Media, organisers of the Digital Home World Summit 2012, the industry's premier event focussing on the connected home and surrounding areas, today announced its best ever speaker line-up.

Day 2 will see the introduction of the brand new Breakfast Briefings to be led by Stuart Sykes, President at Parks Associates, which will cover IP services and the cloud and allow participants to ask probing questions in a relaxed and intimate setting. This will be followed by presentations from the likes of Alex Yesayan, General Manager at Ucom, and Holger Knoepke, Vice President Connected Home at Deutsche Telekom, who will focus on Utilising the IP Network in the House to offer 5th Play Services. Knoepke comments, "The excitement about home management solutions is rapidly growing among consumers. More and more consumers see the value of energy-efficiency solutions, they are attracted by the convenience of home automation solutions such as control of window shutters or lighting, security at home/home monitoring, and health products such as assisted living solutions for elderly people so they can stay in their homes longer and don't have to move into nursery homes."

Other presentations will be delivered from Orange Healthcare, E.ON AG, Turkcell, Etisalat, Mediaset, Ucom, PT Telkom Indonesia plus many more.
