From Hardware to Cloud to User in 30 minutes

Enterprises everywhere are beginning to recognize IoT as a cost-effective data solution with a potentially high ROI. But, moving from connected sensors to a production application requires a lot of specialized knowledge, which is why we encourage new users to begin with a proof of concept. In this session, we will discuss how to get started with a PoC and we will build a concrete example of a data-driven connected solution in real-time.

You will take away practical knowledge on how to connect hardware, build visualizations, and create a user experience – all within 30 mins. Each participant will receive hardware, resources and additional instructions for building a custom connected solution for virtually any organization.

This session is perfect for engineers, architects, and developers whose organization is engaged in IoT.

Revolutionizing IoT Application Development

 

In today’s fast paced world, with the number of connected devices, services and applications exploding at an unprecedented rate, DGLogik, a division of Acuity Brands, will demonstrate a modern IoT application platform that incorporates three important pillars of an IoT ecosystem.

The first pillar is the easy ability to connect to and establish a bi-directional communication channel with anything and anyone regardless of origin, manufacturer, protocol or language. Furthermore, do so in a completely open and transparent manner. We live in a world where access to data is becoming a commodity and the democratization of connectivity will lay the foundation for generations to come. This effort must be open source and fully collaborative amongst all IoT participants.

The second pillar is a comprehensive toolset that allows for rapid development of applications designed to extract value from the connected world. Applications include, but are not limited to device configuration, data management, workflow orchestration, analytics, visualization, and command and control. The key is not only to increase efficiency in creating these applications, but to also lower the bar for expertise required to do so. A drag & drop, no code environment, powerful and flexible enough to produce results that surpass the traditional approach of writing lines upon lines of code will have a significant impact on applications time to market, speed of iteration and ultimately return on investment.

The third pillar is the ability to deploy the applications at any layer of a multi-tiered IoT topology without having to specifically target an operating platform. This means that the same application, with the same code-base, behavior and functionality can be deployed at the edge, fog, the cloud or all of the above in a seamless, distributed, and highly scalable manner.

The new digital age, driven by IoT, is exciting and full of opportunities that were never before possible. In order to unlock the potential value of doing business today and onward, technology must evolve rapidly and be as innovative as ever. An application platform advanced enough to revolutionize the way IoT usecases get built and deployed is leading the way for next generation technology solutions.

eSIM Integration for IoT Devices: Challenges & Benefits

The Embedded SIMs (eUICCs) are the future of SIM technology. With the launch of new iPhones equipped with eSIM in September 2018, after the first Apple watch integration, the technology will now gain traction in the coming years for consumer devices.

In IoT, one of the barriers that stops IoT device makers from adapting cellular connectivity is still the physical SIM card locking the devices to a single mobile carrier / service provider. In some cases, M2M world, IoT has solved this problem with its carrier switchable SIM solution. However, the real potential will come with eSIMs (eUICC) allowing to see devices become smarter and opening new real business opportunities for device makers.

Through this IoT conference, Valid proposes to explore the real potential of eUICC integration for IoT. How eUICC will bring value to device makers and service providers in showing this a radical game changer in over the decades of GSM connectivity. Valid will cover the challenges to integrate eSIM in IOT, but also what is the solution to make it easier for OEMs. Valid will also introduce one of the first major eSIM success stories in IOT for the connected car market as a real example of worldwide deployment.   The objectives are also to bring answers on the following questions:

•     How to use the potential of eUICCs with the right connectivity provider in IoT

•     Why eUICC makes sense for IoT device makers and the potential use cases.

•     How to future-proof their connected business and enable business growth.
