IoT Hardware: Extending the Life of the Device

Date June 20, 2019
Time 11am ET

Event Detail

Extending the lifecycle of IoT devices is a function of a lot more than just hardware. Sure, battery life is being extended through any number of new advances, not to mention newer energy-harvesting technologies. But as edge requirements increase, using more energy, new forms of low-power connectivity have become more important, over-the-air updating from cloud device-management platforms are increasing device efficiency, and even newer network topologies are helping out. This webinar will touch upon several of these trends and their implications for IoT adopters deploying devices in the field.
