Session Abstract: (Virtual) The development of any new technology movement is an exciting and frustrating process. It is launched as an idea full of promise and possibility. The Internet of Things is an excellent example of this process. While customers see the possibility of a simpler, more efficient and more rewarding life aided by a well-heeled team of electronic assistants, businesses see a hungry world of consumers willing to buy the products and services to implement the vision. The wild west period of any emerging technology is inspiring, but never lives up to its promise. For truly scalable business success and realization of something close to the consumer dream, the best ideas must be selected, and competitors must agree to a level of cooperation. Two years ago, I spoke about Open Connectivity Foundation as an organization dedicated to driving that cooperation in the Internet of Things. It’s time for an... Read More

Session Abstract: In-building communications are diverse, robust and growing in capabilities. TIA has identified at least 26 different in-building communications networks, each of which has their own best use case. Private networks offer control, security, and use-case specificity. Edge data centers add robust processing at the edge. Imagine the new IoT applications that these two engines can drive forward. Hear this panel of experts discuss how to maximize the opportunities these two technological advances bring to market in your next in-building IoT deployment.

Session Abstract: IoT Solutions and Applications deliver much of their value by exploiting the digitalization of products, services, and processes using “computation” as an essential ingredient. Approaches to where, when, and how number crunching and analysis is done varies from vertical to vertical, but there are a few clear patterns that are emerging about successful computational architectures. Two aspect that stand out are the importance of generally available, secure, reliable, and “well balanced” compute resources (hardware and software) that can readily be incorporated into IoT Solutions and Applications; and the practical learning curve that comes along with implementing new technologies and business practices. The popularity of “Cloud Computing” is a prime example, providing the business model and functionality to greatly lower the threshold for entry of innovative end to end solutions, with greater freedom for offerors to concentrate on Vertical/Domain specific value. As the IoT community has gone up the... Read More

Session Abstract: The FDA is halfway through the implementation timeline for the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA). The goal of this law is to provide an ‘inter-operable’ solution that can identify and track and trace pharmaceutical products throughout the US Supply Chain, and to ensure the safety and security of all medicines we take today. We will answer how does IoT devices expand from basic track and trace to actively monitoring drugs in-transit and provide alerts and alarms from the norms. How does IoT data plus machine learning and blockchain improve drug recalls, reduce waste and fraud, and ultimately optimize operations. Your key takeaways from this session include: How does IoT devices improve the pharmaceutical logistics operations (shipment visibility)? – Capabilities include: Determining product theft – shipment deviation – how alerts happen in near real-time – Based on real customer applications of IoT devices. Understand how IoT provides more... Read More
Session Abstract: Everyone knows what IoT stands for, but what about IoTT? IoTT stands for Internet of Trusted Things, and today, unfortunately, trust is not synonymous with IoT devices. Consider the Google Nest Guard introducing a microphone without user documentation, OR the constant questions we ask our smart speakers (or listeners) and who decides when they stop listening, OR the Uber smartphone app tracking your location long after your ride has ended. Trust is fast disappearing — if it was ever there in the first place — but that can change. And it should. By using the vowel framework, AEIOU, we will explore together how both vendors and consumers can stay aware, alert, and aligned. Vendors can use this framework to define and develop their solutions with trust as the foundation. Consumers can use this framework to ask the right questions and take corrective actions with trust as the barometer.... Read More
Session Abstract: Traditional Healthcare IT has been plagued with a lack of agility and insight. We have all seen its symptoms: Lack on interoperability, subjective vs objective decision making, delays in service delivery, and silos of information. In this session, IBM Fellow Mac Devine explains how moving to an architecture that can fully take advantage of technology advances in Open Source and AI can provide significant improvements for Healthcare IT. By moving to a de-centralized architecture, no longer is Healthcare IT bound by restrictions and limitations around data movement because real-time insight can be moved to where the data resides. Speaker Mac Devine has 29 years of experience at IBM. During his career, he has held a wide variety of technical and business leadership roles including Chief Architect for mainframe software, Lead Solutions Architect for Networking Services, Director for Linux Development, Chief Strategy Office for IBM Cloud and currently is the VP...

Session Abstract: 2020 calls for continuous adaptive contextual security for all the smart things out there due to the bar set by the popular Zero Trust model. In a world where data centers are without walls, and now networks are without perimeters, it is hard to trust anything without continuously authenticating every smart thing and segmenting it to a fine-grain level for clarity. As the saying goes, “Hindsight is always 20/20”; as we look back, we recognize that had security, trust and privacy were simple, our systems would have hummed. Going into 2020, we must commit to keeping security, trust and privacy simple so that the tiny IoT sensors are able to connect, collaborate and communicate without complexity. Speaker: Dipto Chakravarty CTO at Exostar Chair of IoT Community SPTIoTCoE (Security, Privacy & Tust Center of Excellence) Dipto Chakravarty is the author of three best-selling books on computer architecture and cybersecurity...

Session Abstract: North America has an issue with its aging class 1 rail infrastructure. The major rail providers are dedicated to making their railways safer and more efficient, but it is a daunting task to comply with government regulations for implementing safety measures along with positive train control (PTC). PTC systems are designed to automatically stop a train before accidents occur due to human error. This requires making upgrades to back office systems, communications infrastructure, wayside signals, and locomotives. This presentation focuses on one aspect of rail modernization, the reduction of incidents at waysides (rail crossings). ClearBlade created and deployed a new wayside crossing solution for the rail industry along with the largest class 1 rail provider in the United States. These rail systems are at the forefront of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). However, creating a network of smart wayside crossings is an extremely complicated task, requiring the...

Session Abstract: The current trend in Industrial Automation and Control System (IACS) networking is the convergence of Operational Technology (OT) with Information Technology (IT) with the use of standard Ethernet and Internet Protocol (IP) technology. This convergence helps to enable the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).By default, a converged IACS network is generally open. While the openness facilitates both technology coexistence and IACS device interoperability, it also makes it vulnerable for security threats. A well-defined security policy and implementation becomes critical before bridging the OT and IT. Business practices, corporate standards, security policies, application requirements, industry security standards, regulatory compliance, risk management policies and overall tolerance to risk are key factors in determining the appropriate security stance. An Industrial Demilitarized Zone (IDMZ is a recommend layer to segment business system networks from plant-wide networks. The IDMZ exists as a separate network located in a level between the Industrial and Enterprise... Read More
