Choosing the Right LP-WAN Solution for Your IoT Application

June 7, 2018

Low-Power, Wide Area Networks (LP-WAN) come in a variety of flavors – making use of licensed and unlicensed spectrum, and with a variety of trade-offs in terms of bandwidth, latency, security, and more. While LP-WAN connectivity is generally more applicable to applications where lower cost can justify lower bandwidth than traditional cellular connections, just some of the current choices include NB-IoT, LTE-M, LoRa, and Sigfox, each with its own characteristics. This session will examine those trade-offs in the context of actual use-cases that are being commercialized.

Demystifying LTE for Future-Proofed IoT Solutions

June 28, 2018

For years, 2G and 3G networks have provided M2M and IoT organizations with the network connectivity capabilities required to power their solutions. Today, though, the cellular connectivity landscape is changing as 2G and 3G are set to be gradually phased out in the coming years in favor of LTE.

During this presentation, KORE’s EVP of IoT Solutions, Bill Kramer, will provide the guidance necessary for organizations to identify and implement the future-proofed network technology that works best for their unique business requirements, covering topics such as:

  • Impact of global 2G and 3G network shut downs

  • Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) alternatives to 2G and 3G, including emerging LTE technologies Cat-1,
    Cat-M1, NB-IoT

  • Industry-specific use cases and LPWAN applications

  • Best practices for implementation and migration

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.


IoT Software: Basic Components of the Platform

January 24, 2019

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.
