City as a Platform - Latest Technology and Market Trends

December 13, 2018

Modern cities are quickly evolving into their own digital platforms that can gather and digest data from myriad sources. Technologies like 5G networks, edge computation, and big data analytics are enabling this trend, which is beginning to manifest itself in much increased vehicle-to-vehicle communications, increased analysis of public safety cameras, and predictive maintenance of public infrastructure, among many other things. Massive deployment of relatively simple sensor loops has already led to substantial changes in the way cities manage energy, public safety, waste, traffic, parking and much more. This session will examine the state of current solutions, cutting edge technology, and where the smart cities market will take us from here.

Choices Proliferate for IoT Connectivity Networking

January 31, 2019

There are more networking options than ever before for connecting embedded devices in the field - from traditional cellular, to 5G, to new low-power/low-cost options, to micro satellites. This session will cover the range of options for different applications requiring a wide range of performance in terms of bandwidth, latency, geographic coverage, subscription/billing management, cost, and more.


Blockchain and Distributed Ledgers - What They Mean for IoT

March 7, 2019

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.


Satellite Connectivity Poised for an IoT Breakout?

March, 2019

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.

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

May, 2019

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.


IoT Software: Basic Components of the Platform

June, 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.
