IoT Grand Slam 2016 Headline Opening Keynote – Driving Exceptional Outcomes with the Internet of Things

Session Abstract: The Internet of Things is transforming how we work and live in more ways than many of us could have imagined. Connecting things with unique IP addresses has been possible for over a decade, but the commoditization of sensors and processors and emerging technologies that further enable IoT possibilities are making it viable to move beyond being just connected, into an intelligent Internet of Things. As the IoT advances, we’re seeing enterprises take advantage of IoT in three major ways: Improving operations Getting smarter about design and manufacturing Deepening customer engagement: Speaker: Chris O’Connor GM Internet of Things,...

Cellular, Best Connectivity Enabler for Global IoT Products

Session Abstract: The erosion of margins in manufacturing consumer devices in world markets drives OEMs to seek new ways to manufacture, distribute, and maintain their products. Embedding products with cellular connectivity including communication protocols is the Holy Grail. A product with universal mobile connectivity turns a single product sale into a life-cycle stream of recurring service revenues and can boost an OEM’s financial growth and profitability. Further, after-sales connected services provide new ways to maintain products, serve customers and generate additional revenues. Spirent has entered into a contract with a tier 1 electronics manufacturer enabling the OEM to embed Spirent’s...

Keynote – Creating Order from the Chaos of IoT Devices

Session Abstract Today’s IoT systems include an increasingly complex mix of new and legacy devices, each with its own unique capabilities and idiosyncrasies. In a perfect world, these intelligent devices would provide complete, consistent interfaces using industry-standard protocols. Unfortunately, this is not the case for many existing devices. Instead, IoT platforms must communicate with each device using its own set of supported interfaces and protocols, even though the data that is returned is sometimes inconsistent, incomplete, or even misidentified. The challenge for the system designer is to derive order from this state of confusion. Nowhere is this issue of system complexity...

AI Ambient Virtual Assistant Will Coordinate & Negotiate with the Network’s Edge

Session Abstract: The cost of computing may be going down but does it make sense to ingest all sensory data into the cloud? Enterprises will amass terabytes of dirty data. Encumbered by data cleansing and transformation, enterprises will struggle to derive unbiased data analytics from IoT. Moreover, the edge computing performance, memory, and battery optimization will enable to analytics on the edge, including data cleansing before sensory data is brought into the cloud. This presentation will examine what factors are driving edge computing and why it may come sooner than we think? Moreover, how could a decentralized P2P world of...

IoT Engineering

IoT is complex. More than two-thirds of IoT projects will fail. How can you not be trapped? This presentation introduces IoT Engineering (IOTE), defined as the practical application of a systematic, disciplined, quantifiable approach to the analysis, design, construction, operations, and maintenance of IoT solutions. IOTE is a holistic engineering method focusing on 4 crucial areas: Foundation, Implementation, Lifecycle and Management (FILM). We will go through the concept and rationale of the FILM components and the subcomponents in individual areas. Then we will further zoom in to the IoT Lifecycle model to cover the elements of Definition, Modeling, Realization, DevOps,...

Eat-out, put together or cook: Web standards for IoT Security

Session Abstract: Are standard web technologies enough to build secure IoT systems? How do we design systems that meet the unique operational requirements of this domain? Are these technologies scalable and reliable? Do we need to re-think conventional technology layers in-order to design a secure IoT system ? There are unique differences between the security requirements of common web systems and that of an IoT system. These differences determine if the technology stack should be reused, re-engineered or re-invented in the IoT domain . For example, blacklisting, a common practice used to enforce access control in simple web applications runs...

How Wearables, IoT, and Cognitive can improve employees safety

Session Abstract: Workplace injuries and illnesses in the US alone cost over $190M annually. Therefore, any solution that can improve employee safety and mitigate risks in the workplace is invaluable to both employers, and the insurance companies that insure them. In Haifa Research Lab, we are working on a novel risk mitigation platform that is designed to improve employee safety. This solution is based on data provided by wearable devices and IoT sensors coupled with advanced analytics, which we call ‘shields’. Each shield comprises analytics for the detection or prevention of a specific work-related hazard. Examples of such hazards include...

How to Protect Your IP When Outsourcing to China

Session Abstract: This talk is on how IoT companies are getting themselves in big trouble by manufacturing in China without first laying a framework to protect their IP rights. 2-3 times a month our firm has to tell an IoT company that it essentially just gave its IP to the Chinese manufacturer and the Chinese manufacturer now essentially wants the foreign (usually U.S. or European company) to just sell the Chinese manufacturer’s IoT product on its behalf. The below articles discuss this. This session will explain in clear terms exactly what to do to avoid this sort of situation. China And...
