Yesterday's Highlights & Today's Agenda

Understanding LPWAN Strat
Scott Nelson / Chief Product Officer and VP of Product / Digi International 
Manolo Morales / Global Ecosystem Director / Everynet

Jessica Phillips / Director of Internet of Things, Strategic Development / Comcast Cable
Pete DeNagy / President / Internet of Things America LLC
Connectivity with IoT can mean many strategies, but ultimately if it connects to the Internet it needs a service. Cellular connectivity is reliable, simple, and available virtually everywhere. Even for sensors transmitting small amounts of data LTE CAT M1 and NB IoT can fulfill the requirements. These LPWAN solutions are being complemented by other solutions like LoRa. This session explores the criteria for determining whether cellular is your best choice, or you should seek alternative services.

Edge Based Condition Monitoring Applications Using Sensors
Michelle Kelsey / Motion Sensors Product Line Manager / NXP
Starting with a few basic concepts on Machine Learning, Support Vector Machine (SVM) models and vibration analysis, this session will then expand on examples such as Asset Tracking, Low Power Edge Condition Monitoring, and High Date Rate FFT use cases. The session will conclude with NXP Sensor portfolio enablement for condition monitoring such as NXP's Anomaly detection toolbox and NFC Smart Sensor Tag.

Growing Role of Sensors in Tele-Health Applications
Michelle Kelsey / Motion Sensors Product Line Manager / NXP
This session will unpack driving market trends and their specific market requirements in the field of Healthcare and the transition to increasing Telehealth solutions. It will be an application focused session covering key use-cases such as Emergency alerts, patient adherence & compliance, activity monitoring, and more.

IoT Power Management Strategies
Charles Yeomans / CEO / AtomBeam Technologies Inc. 
IoT traffic is exploding and represents a need for real time speed and throughput. Many of the things on the Internet are remote and have critical issues with power consumption. This session looks at a variety of strategies to minimize the power consumption of IoT modules while enabling better throughput. This session looks at power management strategies.

Security and IoT – If You Don’t Do It, Someone Will
Xinxin Fan, Ph.D. / Head of Cryptography / IoTeX
Julia Cline / VP of Product / Rubicon Labs
The growth of IoT is occurring at an incredible rate and as we become increasingly reliant on intelligent, interconnected devices in our lives and businesses. This reliance raises alarms about security and privacy issues. How do we protect billions of devices from attacks and intrusions that could compromise our personal privacy, public safety, or business viability? As the sum data output from our connected devices becomes our “new persona”, in addition to security, contextuality and relevance become increasingly essential. What does security mean? Is it securing the device or securing the network? Is it securing data in motion or data at rest? Is it the endpoint or the cloud? This panel defines the term “security” and discusses the critical issues in developing, managing and securing the IoT.

IoT Use Cases and Success Stories
Steve Brumer / Business Partner / Brumer Hubler IOT Group
Scott Williamson / CEO / Capstone Metering
Tom Dever / Nimbelink
Ken Hosac / Cradlepoint
The reason to use IoT is simple. It solves a problem or creates and opportunity. This panel is a discussion about the way IoT makes use of Sensors to provide opportunity. Whether you are saving money, making money or monitoring compliance, IoT is at the heart of the solution. Hear from the experienced companies who have implemented solutions.

What's Next for Sensors and IoT – Bluetooth
Jim Katsandres / Developer Relations / Bluetooth SIG
For IoT developers, it is well known that there is no one size fits all solution for connectivity needs in the IoT. In this session, the Bluetooth Special Interest Group will give developers an in-depth look at the three major Bluetooth connectivity models that are driving the majority of the IoT, including low energy and continuous point-to-point connections, broadcast, and mesh networking. These Bluetooth connectivity models are being used in smart buildings, industries, cities, and numerous other IoT use cases. The newest connectivity model, Bluetooth mesh, allows for wireless sensor networks of tens, hundreds or thousands of devices to reliably and securely communicate. What’s more, device communication can now extend far beyond the direct radio range of a device and cover entire office blocks, airports, hospitals, or factory floors. So: What’s the right connectivity model for your IoT solution? Geared towards engineers and developers, attendees of this session will get a look “under the hood” at available Bluetooth connectivity models. They will also learn more about how they can use Bluetooth technology to generate new product offerings and revenue streams for their organizations.
