Is the IoT Cool, Creepy, or Just Plain Wrong?

Session Abstract: What’s not to love about all those smart, cool, and connected “things” we parade around with these days? Admit it: it can be liberating, fascinating, and fun especially for the data aficionados who are on a never-ending quest to discover the latest breaking insights. But what happens when these cool things get hacked and/or our personal information is stolen or shared without our permission and/or the government wants more access all in the name of national/global security? In this era of the Internet of Things, we can no longer relegate this discussion to the privacy freaks and security...

Who will be the Conductor of the Identity Orchestra for Connected Things?

Session Abstract: With as much as $11 trillion in business impact by 2025, IoT has the potential to radically transform the world. It will impact industries across the spectrum of verticals and provide new opportunities for a variety of companies. Yet, most companies are only in the early stages of their IoT deployments. Many of them do not consider the potential impact of poorly developed policies and security in their IoT rollouts. Their relative inexperience has led to a security challenge for the industry and questions for every company working on IoT projects. As more devices connect to the internet,...

Unlock the Potential of IoT with Network Virtualization

Abstract: With new, connected cellular IoT devices joining the network at scale, carriers need to ensure their networks can cope with the new traffic mixes, provide the levels of service quality IoT demands (without putting existing voice and data services at risk), and reduce the operational costs to offset the lower ARPU IoT devices generate. Network virtualization offers carriers the potential to meet these challenges and can work in tandem with IoT to exploit the network and create new differentiated opportunities for cellular IoT. This talk examines the trends of cellular IoT and NFV, explores how successfully deploying virtualized networks...

Session Abstract: The food system is an extremely complex supply chain, moving billions of pounds of food each year. Food passes through farmers, distributors, processors and retailers, often traveling thousands of miles prior to arriving in the hands of a consumer. In the process, a shipment may be split, repacked or joined with another shipment, further increasing the complexity of the system. Given the vast and nonlinear nature of the supply chain, the food system has become opaque, with limited traceability, information sharing, or even data collection.
