Proving the Business Case for the Internet of Things


Monetization of IoT Investments through the Network Effect

March 22, 2018

Three years into the broad adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, many organizations are enabling IoT capabilities by incorporating sensors and data communication capabilities into their products. They are capturing and using performance data to improve customer satisfaction, increase product value and reduce service and warranty costs.

But, are these organizations doing enough to maximize their ROI? Are they fully monetizing the value of their investments in IoT-enabled solutions to enhance smart, connected products and operations?

Join Jeffrey Miller, VP of Customer Success and Advisory Services at PTC who will discuss his research into these questions and share examples of client successes.

Register for this webcast to learn more about the:

  • Potential business value available through an IoT-enabled ecosystem

  • Impact IoT technology can have on financial models

  • Importance of the cloud, distributed data and integrated IoT platform technologies

Gigabit-class Cellular IoT is Here

Paving the Way to 5G and This is What you Need to Know About It

May 3, 2018

Wireless networks have evolved dramatically with LTE. Operators around the globe have been upgrading at such as rapid pace that growth in traffic demand has exploded along with increasing consumer appetite for social media and data-intensive applications. LTE-advanced technologies and wireless networks can now offer peak data rates of over 1 Gigabit per second (Gbps), which is well beyond the data rates provided by traditional public internet options such as DSL. In the near future, 5G will usher in a new era of super-high data rates and ultra-low latency.

For the Internet of Things (IoT), this outpacing of wired technology has made it difficult for enterprise to ignore high-speed cellular. Early enterprise use cases for wireless were fairly confined to LTE failover. But with ubiquitous coverage, increased network throughputs, and sub-10ms latency, it now has the power to become the primary connection for distributed enterprises.

Join us to learn more about high-speed cellular standards like LTE Category 18 and their impact on applications such as

  • SD-WAN

  • Mobile Gateways

  • Emergency Response Mobile Routers

  • Cellular Enterprise Networking

  • Others

IoT Software: Basic Components of the Platform

May 31, 2018

As the number of software options for deploying connecting devices multiplies, those platforms offer more than simply connectivity management. This session will look at the basic components of an end-to-end software platform, including the basic database, connectivity, device management, rule-based process management, analytics, and other tools software brings to bear.

Wearables Affect Healthcare, Retail, Smart Homes, Agribiz, More

July 26, 2018

Advances in integrated circuits and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) are making wearable technology more functional every day. Already broadly used for consumer wellness, new wearable technology will allow for medical-grade reporting, location-based marketing services, and home systems integration - this session will cover the likely trends.

Using IoT Data at the Edge, Where it's Needed

October 4, 2018

McKinsey & Co. have estimated that only 1% of IoT data ever actually gets used. One solution to this is to avoid so-called "data lakes" architectures where pools of unused data are collected, and instead opting for distributed intelligence at the network's edge. This session will look at the latest advances in machine-learning for IoT applications, emphasizing auto-correction and predictive analysis.

Satellite Connectivity Poised for an IoT Breakout?

November 1, 2018

Satellite connectivity for IoT/M2M deployments has long been a pillar of the ecosystem, especially in applications where truly ubiquitous coverage and reliability outweighed most cost concerns. However, new service offerings that integrate satellite connectivity, nanosatellite networks that lower costs, and new antennae technology are all combining to expand the footprint of satellite in the IoT sector.

The future of LPWAN

November 29, 2018

LPWANs are exploring opportunities in major markets like asset tracking, building management, smart cities, smart agriculture, and more. These opportunities could have a huge impact on our world—from helping to feed the global population, to reducing the amount of water consumed, to cutting back on energy consumption, and so much more. LPWANs power real applications, because they allow companies to get data back from sensor networks and make more efficient decisions about how to utilize resources. In this webinar we will explore current and future applications for LPWAN as well as predictions on the future of what Low Power Networking will offer.

Blockchain and Distributed Ledgers - What They Mean for IoT

December 13, 2018

New database architectures are the leading edge in IoT/M2M security, and offer great promise for secure online transactions. It started with Bitcoin, but has broad implications for IoT, which required that transaction could not be altered retroactively. This session will discuss the concept of distributed ledgers, and how they can be used in IoT applications.
