Secure From the Start – Why IoT Applications Need Protection Now

Organizations that don’t learn how to compete in the new Digital Economy arising out of the Internet of Things are not likely to survive. Experts predict that by 2020 there will be 4.3 Internet-connected devices for every man, woman, and child on the planet. Each of these devices generates data that is pushed, pulled, collected, sorted, analyzed, stored, and examined somewhere – usually in or through the cloud. This is the data that forms the foundation of the Digital Economy and that is changing how businesses are run and how people work, interact, and live their lives – and businesses must respond accordingly. 

The data collected through IoT devices must be protected. The challenge is how? Most IoT devices have not been designed with security in mind and they are often “headless”, meaning they can’t be programmed, patched or updated. Secure IoT requires automated visibility and unified policies for sensors and edge devices, through the data center, and out to the cloud, combined with advanced detection capabilities, all powered by the threat intelligence and control required to mitigate threats at machine speed.

Explore real-world use cases describing how cutting-edge consumer, commercial and industrial organizations are designing security into transformational IoT-based applications from the moment they are launched. With these strategies, these companies are maximizing their opportunity and protecting their most precious asset –their data.

Open IoT Networks: What Kind of Network Do You Want to Build?

With the industry segment forecasted to reach as much as $14.2 trillion by 2030, the IoT curve is unlike any other technology evolution that has occurred in recent history. With so much opportunity, the decisions that users need to consider when choosing a network architecture are more important than ever. IoT networks built around today’s needs only – with little consideration for growth, additional use cases, or even performance – are likely to disappoint and even prove costlier to operate over time.

In this session, the criteria for choosing IoT network technology will be outlined, including a side-by-side evaluation of current standards being demonstrated as instrumental for the industrial IoT. By illustrating key application examples, Silver Spring Networks CEO Mike Bell will detail the foundation for an IoT network that customers can trust and that they can build upon in the future.

How IoT and Machine Learning drives Connected Vehicle Architectures

  • Many modern cars are connected to the Internet in some way. Still, many users miss features they are familiar with when using other IoT devices: regular SW-updates and bug-fixes, functional enhancements throughout the lifecycle, customization and integration into a user-centered ecosystem.
  • This presentation reflects on possibilities and limits to support flexibility and customization of modern vehicle architectures by using the full potential of current open standards (AUTOSAR classic / adaptive). Based on this flexibility, it shows chances and limits of using particle filtering algorithms and machine learning to realize comfort features like vehicle locking/unlocking aiming at an integrated user-centered eco-system (smartphone, vehicle, Internet).

Boosting "Driver Behavior" with Artificial Intelligence (AI)

Driving a vehicle everyday has become commonplace – yet we monitor and analyze less than 1% of all drives today. This is largely due to the lack of solutions that integrate well into our daily lives and work on mass-scale.

With new advanced analytics methods, combining artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, signal processing and biometrics, we can make roads safer, reduce accidents and help save lives. These advanced techniques provide richer driving behavior data, revealing individual traits summarily accessible for improving driver performance via automated coaching.

Which IoT Protocol Should I Use for My System?

Embedded systems using sensors and connectivity are not new to embedded developers. However, using these elements with multiple additional internet technologies is. Internet protocols (IPs) are not new, but dedicated IPs for the IoT are, and they are used to help shape system capabilities. There are multiple IP application layer protocols that are above the TCP/IP sockets. Knowing them helps developers make the best design choices for a product. Bandwidth requirements, real-time performance and memory footprint are some of the main criteria to use in selecting an IoT protocol.

The Road Toward IoT 2.0: Requirements, Challenges and Solutions

 

In a world towards 500 IoT products per user, experiences need to be context and location aware, cutting across multiple products vs the current product-centric experiences. Products need to be mutually aware in ways unknown a-priori. Development methodologies need to be agile, leveraging plug & play building blocks vs traditional waterfall approaches: Welcome to IoT 2.0 – The Interface of Things Era. 

First Generation IoT products position the mobile phone application as the one-to-one remote control of a product, and at times were more gimmicks than truly enhancing customer experience. The model of having a dedicated app per product is quickly running out of steam. Next generation user interfaces need to be truly centered on the user and their habits versus centered on specific product specifications. They will need to be dynamic, context and location aware, as well as span across multiple products. 

To keep pace with these new market demands, all levels of the IoT technology stack need to be modularized to simplify and speed development. These plug and play building blocks will define a new, more agile approach providing OEMs the needed toolset to win in the IoT 2.0 era and beyond.

The Bigger Bang

Overview: Did you hear that? That was the bigger bang! Like the cosmic expansion of the big bang theory where an expanding universe can be traced back in time to an originating single point, Sigfox is the catalyst for the collection of small data everywhere – data which can erupt into a powerful universe. Join Allen Proithis, President, Sigfox, North America as he discusses the power behind small data that singularly minute, but in aggregate is powerful. He’ll explain how Sigfox hears small data by very simply giving life to the physical world, unlocking a giant universe of small, yet powerful data. This universe of powerful data can enable businesses to create additional revenue streams, increase operational efficiencies, and track assets to prevent loss and secure recovery.

Luxury Retail Gets Smart: Embracing AI will help Luxury Retail Evolve

Artificial Intelligence, seen as the 4th Industrial Revolution, will profoundly change industries. Luxury retail should not be perceived as immune to the changes AI portends, nor should it ignore the benefits of embracing those changes.

In retail, any technology investment is scrutinized for a fast and measured return on investment. While few retailers have publicly embraced AI enhanced technologies, some results have been game changing. Once publicly traded companies highlight AI-driven wins in their performance, competition to adopt those capabilities and resources will be fierce.

New AI technology applications are reported daily. For the Retailer, current AI applications can spark creativity, raise profitability, reduce waste, and increase employee productivity and engagement. From the customer point of view, AI technology will usher in a level of hyper-personalization for assortments, drive new product discovery, and change the way Brands relate to customers.

Industrial IoT Applications: How Developers Can Go-To-Market Using Proven Connectivity Platforms

McKinsey Research estimates that B2B applications will seize nearly 70% of the almost $12 trillion value of the IoT.  By leveraging an existing install and customer base, developers have an opportunity to tap into this opportunity by creating connected apps and devices – for our cities, for utilities, logistics, and other industrial IoT applications – that can truly make a difference in the environments and economies in which we live, work and play.   

But industrial IoT applications warrant real-time data, which require not only a reliable, ubiquitous and secure network platform, but also the ability to leverage both cloud-based and distributed intelligence.

This session will expose the network and platform requirements for industrial IoT applications. Based on real-world use-cases, end-to-end architectures will be explored for capturing and monetizing the Industrial IoT opportunity.  This session will also explore how leveraging multiple networking technologies, such as mesh and cellular, can lay the foundation for offering Service Level Agreements for mission critical Industrial IoT applications.
