IoT Hardware: Extending the Life of the Device

June 20, 2019

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.

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

 

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

 

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.


Satellite Connectivity Poised for an IoT Breakout?

 

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.


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

 

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.
