IoT is known for its unique architecture involving sensors, embedded devices & gateways, and data center/cloud applications. Once the architecture is understood, defining platforms that implement the architecture is the next logical step toward effective deployment of a variety of IoT applications. Often platforms are thought of simply as a framework that provides code and interfaces for IoT development. However, the IoT platform must extend to ecosystem, manageability, security, and tools in order to address key IoT development challenges. Join us as IoT experts outline key capabilities of emerging IoT platforms and important connectivity, manageability, ecosystem, and development tools needed for successful IoT development.Watch Now
IoT encompasses a wide range of embedded, network, and cloud systems where the value is unlocked by the data gathered from sensor and edge devices that can be used by gateways, cloud applications, and analytics to drive significant value. However, communication is not as simple as one protocol, one service, one language. And the connectivity is multi-dimensional involving data transfer, authentication/security, and manageability from application to sensor. Join us as IoT industry experts pick an application and break down the communications requirements and methods for secure, manageable, and efficient operation.Watch Now
In the Internet of Things, there's no such thing as a mobile device that operates in isolation. And yet, mobile devices and apps are often marketed, sold, and bought as if they're independent products. No one wants 50 different mobile apps to control 50 different things in their smart home or smart health environments. With IoT product manufacturers championing different communications protocols, the challenge is to enable one mobile app to control many devices.Watch Now
