The two-day, online Industrial Internet of Things Conference for enterprise users, product makers/designers, and apps developers that buy IIoT technology. Each day will include five hours of programming, including keynote addresses, invited speakers, and 30-min workshops. And of course, registered attendees can access presented materials on-demand for six months.
WEDNESDAY, 22 APRIL
Morning – Industrial Network Connectivity
Track will cover the very latest in developments for device connectivity in an industrial context, including the advent of private LTE networks and the universal SIM card. The track will also will offer insights on connectivity choices for IIoT – from low-cost options like LP-WAN or NB-IoT to 5G for high-end applications. This track will also include a special session on COVID-19 and IoT.

Mike Hibbett, Solution Architect, Taoglas Next-Gen IoT
THURSDAY, 23 APRIL
Morning – Platforms and Clouds Manage Data
Software platforms and Cloud services s for IIoT are doing a lot more than manage devices and connectivity. Public and private data exchanges are incorporating data sources that are entirely outside IIoT deployments but can be used to manage the edge and more. At the same time, purpose built IIoT platforms are offering new benefits.
