Case Study: iBasis
Future of IoT Simulation: Internet of Virtual Things
Advances in Virtualization and Machine Learning are creating exciting business opportunities based on the value inherent in IoT data. As a result, barriers facing IoT application developers will fall dramatically in the next few years enabling them to realize this value. Whether access to IoT-ready APIs, addressing protocol, connectivity or security unknowns, or simply eliminating the need for physical devices during development, time-to-market will shrink ushering in a new generation of IoT-enabled applications and experiences. We will talk about KnowThings.io approach to help accelerate the developer productivity paving path to a simplified and pain-free continuous integration(CI/CD) DevOps model and help unleash a fresh wave of developer-led creativity.
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.

Building Event-Driven Systems at the Speed of IoT
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 maximum agility in the face of requirements for continuous innovation and digital transformation.
Panel: Testing in the IoT ecosystem
- What new approaches need to be taken to testing software and hardware within the IoT environment?
- How to move testing outside of the laboratory.
- What actually needs to be tested? Connectivity, security, safety and reliability.
- Discussion of real world examples of testing IoT devices and platforms, potential pitfalls and how to avoid them.

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.

Panel: Moving beyond connectivity to insight
- Exploring trustworthy connectivity in the IoT in a world with heterogenous networks and potential restrictions of embedded devices
- Advances in wireless connectivity enabling the IoT within industry and the home and beyond.
- Discovering the challenges that can potentially disrupt connectivity and how to solve those in the future – signalling, security, presence detection, power consumption, bandwidth
- Once connected, what insights can be provided by these devices? How does mode of connectivity affect this?

Creating a Secure and Scalable Infrastructure for Commercial IoT
Commercial IoT applications, such as smart buildings and asset tracking, are rapidly gaining adoption across market sectors, these require specific edge IoT architectures that combine low-power wireless and edge computing. Rigado will share best practices for deploying & managing secure Commercial IoT architectures at scale – while minimizing operational cost.
Panel: Scalability and Interoperability – What Drives Insights?
- What is going to be the big disruptor within the currently stagnant interoperability market?
- What are ways to enable interoperability to scale from device-to-device and application-to-application all the way to system-to-system, infrastructure-to-infrastructure, sector-to-sector, region-to-region, and above for a truly global IoT?
- Issues with scalability in data modelling for the IoT; maintaining data quality whilst keeping analytics cost effective and timely.
- Importance of structures in scalability – the need for simple but dynamic structures to enable real time data analytics.
Massive IoT from the Service Provider Perspective
The increasing number of connected devices means that there is an increasing need for networks that can cover massive amounts of connections per cell, at low cost and using low power. Using NB-IoT, several Telco’s are entering this market, but what are the advantages and disadvantages of this type of technology over other LPWA networks like LoRa? And how does being an established Telco help you connect with customers in this crowded market. Finally, we will discuss the future of NB-IoT with the introduction of 5G IoT networks looming.
Which is the Most Relevant Network for Your IoT Application: LTE or LPWA or NB-IoT
- Which is better for your product, a Cat-o, Cat-1 or Cat-M LTE network or an LPWA network?
- What are the effective business models for collaboration with key verticals?
- Discussions around range vs. data rate vs power consumption for these IoT connectivity technologies
- The drawbacks for each network, including security and whether devices can actively initiate communication with the network
