Case Study: The innovative application of connectivity within the European Space Agency
Many “things” are still out of coverage of terrestrial communication networks. Such use cases can be found in very remote areas, and maritime, aeronautical and other mobile scenarios. In coming years we will see a number of new satellite systems addressing these IoT markets with advanced technology, some of them supported by ESA. ESA will present the newest developments in this area.

Solo: IoT, the mine field of connectivity
Among multiple obstacles on the IoT projects road, every organization will have to decide on the type of connectivity. What technology ? From which supplier ? At what price ? … In this session, we will give you hints on how to select the best connectivity for your own project. Please join to learn & share your experience with us
Legacy development approaches and tools simply aren’t built to handle the enormous flow of real-time, event-driven, data streams generated by IoT devices, existing systems, and people.
In this session, learn how the revolution in event-driven application platforms enable innovative companies to develop, deploy and run real-time enterprise applications – enabled by the IoT – with dramatically reduced time-to-market, significantly lowered development and maintenance costs, and maximised agility in the face of requirements for continuous innovation and digital transformation.

Panel: Platform selection for your IoT project?
- There are over 400 IoT platforms available in the current market of every size and shape, how do you choose between this bewildering array?
- Who should you talk to before making this decision?
- What is the main difference between the big players offerings and smaller more specialised management systems?
- Discussion of the key considerations when choosing a platform; provisioning and authentication, configuration and control, monitoring and diagnostics and software updates and maintenance.
- Bottom up vs top down approaches in selection.
The next generation of Internet for IoT
This talk will focus on next generation internet from three main perspectives:
1. Infrastructure – needs to be balanced between capabilities in the Cloud (data-lakes and AI) and edge (5G), between intricate and complex semi-autonomous to autonomous self-healing systems and local repairablity to ensure urban resilience. Infrastructure should support services.
2. Services – A service is any operation that supports either machines or people in their wellbeing and abilities to build a meaningful and cooperative existence. This thus entails the entire trajectory from BAN- to VWAN; BAN (body, wearables), LAN (home, smart services to the home), WAN (mobility in general from bike to connected car and plane), and VWAN (the very wide area network; the smart city). Blockchain as well as connectivity itself have become commodities and are thus services in this view. Services should support everyday activities.
3. Entitlements – synchronous and fixed identities cannot support services in a hybrid infrastructure. A balance between anonymity (in federated sets of identities that are tied to services such as shopping, dating, recovering from illness….) and accountability (in stable sets of relationships of behavior and activity) for processes, machines, products and people in wallets, is vital to create popular support from all generations for a new type of governance. Entitlements should support services.

Setting the Stage for Success: How to Develop a Winning IoT Strategy
According to a recent survey by Cisco, 60% of respondents claimed that executing an IoT initiative often proved to be much more difficult than expected, as many organisations looking to claim their piece of the IoT pie often leap in head first without fully vetting out their approach. To successfully bring an IoT solution to market and overcome common deployment challenges, the first step is to develop a feasible and scalable IoT strategy targeting specific business functions and goals. During this presentation, KORE will discuss:
- Baseline considerations for developing an attainable IoT strategy
- Critical elements of a successful IoT strategy
- Next steps and best practices for strategy execution
