Smart Buildings Keynote by Marriott – Developing the Connected Building

Session Abstract: What does it mean to have a smart building? We see a smart building as a building where every single device can communicate with each other to become more efficient and enhance the user experience. As a building developer, we’re always seeking for new ways to push the limit of efficiency and intelligence. In our current ongoing Marriott Autograph Hotel project, we’re utilizing a digital electricity backbone to power distributed Cisco Digital Building Switches which then provide PoE power and network connectivity to lighting, motor shades, mini bars, door locks, sensors, phones, cameras, and electric mirrors. In our next project, we plan on pushing the envelope even further by going 100% DC power, move TVs and VRF AC units to PoE, and create a DC micro-grid which could allow us a Net-Zero building. What does all this achieve? A safer, more intelligent, and effectively cheaper building where information and control is at your fingertips. Speaker: Farukh Aslam  CEO of Sinclair Holdings Farukh Aslam is a commercial real estate developer based in Fort Worth focusing in hotels, office buildings and upscale apartments. In 1999 he started in Telecom infrastructure and focused on VOIP when it was still in its infancy. At that time he started a company overseas to set up Asia’s 3 rd largest FTTH (Fiber to the Home) network which today has grown to over 800 employees. Lately his focus is “Digital Building” and “IOT” in the commercial buildings. He has deployed PoE powered lighting and other building infrastructure such as Video surveillance and access control using PoE as well. He is working very closely with LG to make up to 55” LED TVs and inside building AC unit to be powered also using PoE, along with other products such as Somfy window motor shades, a digital mirror from Electric Mirror, and a PoE powered Mini Bar. One of the most fascinating technologies he is working with these days is “Digital Electricity” which holds the possibility of completely eliminating high voltage electricity from a project and it is currently deployed in a Historic building in downtown Fort Worth. Looking forward, Farukh is developing a complete DC apartment building with a DC microgrid including solar power, DC powered appliances, and a complete Digital Electricity Backbone. © IoT Community’s IoT Day Slam 2019 Internet of Things Conference Join the IoT Community at https://iotslam.com/community

Smart Buildings Keynote – Integrating ubiquitous connectivity to smart buildings

Session Abstract: Smart Cities, Smart Buildings and the IoT sector in general rely on the one hand on a robust connectivity and on the other hand on a standardized platform layer to enable the services they wish to provide. Telecommunication carriers are fast on the trail of providing both the high bandwidth, low latency capabilities of 5G, as well as the penetrating capabilities of low power wide area networks (LPWAN), such as LoRaWAN or NarrowBand-IoT. Both levels of capabilities, serve important needs for in-building connectivity. Why there is a need to digitize the buildings and their assets? One of the main challenges within the Facility Management industry is a lack of use-case-comprehensive and standardized TC/IT platform services, to tackle the existing hurdles. Only one example is to get a transparency about the “real” utilization regarding the office spaces. With the end-to-end service, starting from minimally invasive IoT sensors and ending on platform-based service Apps, you do not only gain insights about your office rooms, but you also can optimize your facility services, such as the “demand based cleaning service” or a “near real time conference booking availability”. This keynote presentation will discuss carrier roles in enabling new types of services across different real-world use cases for Smart Building, and how the carriers are readying in themselves to provide these services. Speaker: Daniel Herb Senior Director of IoT Strategy and Partnerships at T-Mobile US As Senior Director of IoT Strategy and Partnerships at T-Mobile US, Daniel leads the teams who bring the voice of the customer and champion Un-carrier principles to the IoT ecosystem.

Smart Buildings Session – How Data Centers and Central Offices Co-Exist in the Same Space

Session Abstract The convergence of wireless and wireline will force the different groups to work together. Operating both two different ways won’t work. Being able to support the needs of the traditional central office network and supporting low latency data applications driven by 5G evolution requires different mindsets in the same facility. Operators need to support the “rip and replace” data center mindset while at the same time supporting evolving needs of the incoming outside plant infrastructure for a lifetime. Speaker: Craig Culwell is a market development manager at CommScope, responsible for key Service Provider accounts in North America. The solutions include connectivity for Central Offices, MTSO’s, Data Centers, Outside Plant, and Cell Sites/Small Cell, with additional emphasis on service providers transitioning to SDN/NFV, Edge Data Centers, densification for 4G & 5G, and the value of utilizing Automated Infrastructure Management (AIM) solutions. Culwell’s strategic mind leverages an understanding of customer needs in those vertical markets and driving change in cross-functional product management, engineering, and field application engineering teams to develop the solutions to increase market share now and into the future. Before his nearly 20 years at CommScope, Culwell spent time at AT&T as a network service operations manager. Culwell holds a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and Marketing from California Polytechnic State University, and an MBA from the University of Phoenix.

Creating a Safer and Enhanced Passenger Experience while Enabling a ‘Rideshare Passenger Economy’

Session Abstract: Let’s focus on the interior features within the new reality of Level 5 Autonomous Vehicles: ALL occupants are now passengers. Connectivity, comfort and a tailored ride experience will dictate which vehicle manufacturers and rideshare services rise to the top. Once all of the passenger mobile devices are precisely located Evvy enables seat adjustments, temperature settings, window shade settings, etc., according to the passenger’s preference profile. If this passenger had a premium vehicle WIFI subscription, for example, Evvy could automatically connect him to the vehicle wifi, leapfrogging the password entry step. With the appropriate 3rd party support, Evvy could prioritize bandwidth settings, infotainment access, by passenger/seat location in the vehicle. This customizable ‘pathway’ to passengers based on their location in the vehicle enables the same e-commerce, targeted advertising, curated content delivery capabilities Motion Intelligence is working to deliver in vehicles today. From a security standpoint, Evvy can collect ‘blindfold’ passenger identification information who are participating in the ride but did not order the rideshare service including the duration of time a passenger spends in the car by identifying at what point his device exited the vehicle, and if it moved to any other seats within the vehicle. Once the rideshare transport ends with no Emergency incidents the ‘blindfold’ passenger identification information would be deleted. Evvy can detect unauthorized or “unscheduled” devices that enter the vehicle and report them to a 3rd party. If passengers opt-in ahead of time for the ‘enhanced rideshare experience’ Evvy would be allowed to market a few customized or tailored advertisements to the passenger’s mobile device (based on the passenger’s enhanced passenger service profile) in exchange for a gift certificate or discount coupon delivered to the driver’s mobile device for products and services available within a certain time period located in and around the dropoff destination. Speakers: CJ Meurell – Co-Founder at Motion Intelligence Sue Spradley – CEO at Motion Intelligence CJ is co-founder of Motion Intelligence, responsible for global strategy and business development. Over the past two years, he has led Motion Intelligence from developing software to prevent drivers from being distracted by their mobile devices to a software technology platform which detects, identifies and precisely locates all smart mobile devices inside a vehicle. Once the smart mobile devices are located, use cases are enabled which focus on driver safety, vehicle ‘branded’ passenger experiences and car-ride-share passenger e-commerce opportunities. Previous to Motion Intelligence, CJ led a global sales and business development team focused on C-level engagements with network equipment manufacturers (NEMs) and network integrators for Viavi Solutions. His team created market opportunities, by integrating Viavi service enablement technology with Viavi’s global partner’s technology, products, and solutions. This unique technology integration creates new and enhances existing, “edge to core” service enablement solutions, allowing our global partners to monetize the network for their customers, at the same time, profitably grow their managed services and solutions portfolios. CJ’s international experience includes ex-pat assignments in China and Europe, leading multifunctional teams while defining and executing a profitable business strategy...
