Event Detail

Scalable IoT Platform and M2M Connectivity Solutions
– presented by IMC

Deploying IoT can be simpler by using available tools, asking suppliers key questions and putting the focus on unique requirements. This track covers methods in sourcing and managing technologies at the heart of your project, the latest in cost-effective connectivity, and critical security concerns.

Top Three Topics:

  • An in-depth look at how to build and manage cost-effective and reliable IoT services
  • Can traditional cellular networks compete with emerging wireless technologies?
  • IoT-M2M security challenges, and solutions

Session 1Deploying IoT Platforms - What You Need to Know

Request for Proposal (RFP) workshop leveraging a ‘template’ developed with input from numerous vendors and users. Covering device management, connectivity, analytics, and integration, this session taps the collective knowledge of best practices, and tools to adapt RFP requirements.

Session 2How Does LP-WAN Stack Up Against 'Traditional' Connectivity?

Data-intensive services such as video may need to run on 4G-LTE for broad coverage, while growing numbers of new IoT deployments are finding cost savings with Low-Power Wide-Area Networks (LP-WAN). This session will explore the impact of emerging wireless access technologies for WANs, Metro Networks, Smart Cities, and Smart Buildings.
