Can Information Technology Simultaneously Delight the Patient and Physician, Increase Access, Reduce Cost, and Improve Quality?

The most significant challenge in health care today is the demand to deliver on the quadruple aims of experience, access, quality and cost. Much of the demand falls to physicians and consistently achieving these aims is persistently beyond their reach. The current array of digital health tools available to physicians are inadequate - especially with the accelerating growth in medical knowledge and the amount of health care data doubling every two years. Keeping up with everyday practice demands alone is driving an epidemic of physician burnout. In this session we will focus on ambulatory care and describe digital health solutions designed to deliver on the quadruple aims in a financially sustainable practice where burnout risk is low.

Authentication of Things: Protecting Consumer Privacy While Seamlessly Provisioning Smart Home Devices

With the emerging threats in IoT (which includes smart homes) and increased attack surfaces, end-to-end security is paramount. Along with security, privacy concerns are on the rise. In particular, seamless provisioning of IoT devices in smart homes while protecting consumer privacy is of utmost necessity. In order to address such concerns, we introduce AoT – a new suite of authentication and authorization protocols for the entire IoT device life-cycle. The foundation for any security solution relies on cryptographic primitives with policy enforcement. However, conventional cryptographic algorithms can be resource intensive and beckon the need for lightweight cryptography (symmetric and asymmetric key crypto). Hence, AoT incorporates lightweight and side-channel attack protected cryptography while ensuring seamless interoperability.

Edge-to-cloud Connectivity and Virtualization for Efficiency

Are Enterprises taking connectivity for granted in their IoT applications?

As the reach of these applications grows beyond borders, and with the alarming rate of cybersecurity breaches in the news, Enterprises are beginning to realize they have major IoT connectivity challenges on their hands.  How do they manage the exploding complexity of multi-country global coverage?  How do they protect the end points, the applications and the data between them?  How can they get better control over the cost and quality of what is the lifeblood of their IoT applications – mobile connectivity?  With the accelerating migration of Enterprise IoT applications to the cloud and with the end points fast becoming “mobile first,” these challenges may soon jeopardize the productivity and ROI they hope to reap from IoT.

Can we get to a world where devices truly are “born connected” with performance optimization and security built in?  Can we get to a place where the enterprise, not the mobile operator, is the “parent” of these “newborn connected” devices no matter where they are, with ultimate control over how they connect?   Tata Communications believes we can…

IoT connectivity needs a new wave of innovation to help Enterprises confront and overcome these challenges.  The industry needs a new type of connectivity provider that covers the globe, offers multiple connectivity options in each country, gives total control back to the Enterprise, seamlessly ensures edge to cloud security and makes it all easily programmable and manageable.

At Tata Communications, we’ve pursued this vision and made it a reality with our MOVE IoT Connect service.  We’ll outline how MOVE IoT Connect is the next generation IoT connectivity solution.

Building IoT Cloud Applications at Scale with Microservices

DConnectivity, big data, and analytics are transforming businesses of all types, and one of the challenges for industrial internet of things is that there are massive amounts of data generated by “things” such as jet engines, wind turbine, sensors and more. This data is only valuable if it can be accessed securely, efficiently and quickly. Often, Industrial companies have very unique requirements that are different from those of other businesses. Engineers need to build systems for security, flexibility and resiliency, not just efficiency and robustness. This presentation will discuss how to leverage microservice design principles and other open source platforms to build an IOT device management solution in a microservice oriented architecture. This gives the cloud visibility to securely manage millions of connected IOT devices at scale.esign Patterns/Architecture Maps for IoT Design patterns are the building blocks of architecture and enable developers and architects to reuse solutions to common problems.

In this session, we will review how several common design patterns for connected things, design patterns for common use cases and design patterns for infrastructure, can speed connected device development.

The Future of Connected Mobility: What opportunities are emerging from the on-going disruption of how people move around in cities

One of the most transformative disruption currently happening is the advent of new forms of mobility. Car-sharing, ride-hailing, and more generally mobility-as-a-service (MaaS) have already fundamentally transformed the way people move around in cities; and autonomous vehicles are only a few years away.

The implications of that disruption go well beyond transport. Second order consequences will fundamentally reshape cities geography (and real estate dynamics), energy markets, or ways of working.

To understand the future of mobility and its ramifications, we spoke with 30+ experts, conducted in-context user interviews in 3 continents, and analysed 250+ companies across the ecosystem. Through this multidisciplinary analysis we forged our unique point of view on mobility. We are convinced journeys are increasingly becoming an opportunity rather than a negative externality, and that the next opportunities will lie in creating journey experiences, rather than more efficient ways to go from A to B.

Avoiding the Top 5 Pitfalls of Developing and Deploying Smart Applications at the Edge

Efforts to derive value from IoT continue to grow, and the underlying device and gateway technologies are evolving to include more local computing resources. Add to that the growth of developer communities around Android, iOS, embedded Linux and Windows, Intel/, ARM and others, and we will see a surge of new applications with locally managed and analyzed data on IoT/OT edge devices and gateways.Considerations for metadata management, data movement, security, and governance of data associated with these apps, overhead for processing and packaging, and security concerns will require on-device and gateway persistent storage.  Flat file systems and other prior tools don’t meet modern embedded data management platform or analytics requirements. Join us to gain in-depth insight on how to optimally deliver persistent data management at the edge.  Avoid the hassle and security complications that ETL between things, gateways and datacenters will create. Experience a real-world demo in Python with source code samples showing how you can code once and deploy to multiple target platforms.

Extending Security to Low Complexity IoT Endpoint Devices

Millions of low compute, low power IoT sensors and devices are deployed today with billions expected to be deployed by 2020, all of them without any strong security! These low complexity devices have by design very limited onboard processing power, memory and battery capacity, and are typically very low cost. Conventional IoT security schemes assume that IoT edge devices are intelligent enough to handle processor-hungry validation and encryption techniques, and have access to vast amount of power to handle multiple message exchanges used for authentication. These schemes are not well adapted to the world of low complexity IoT devices.

A new security scheme needs to be designed from the ground up with very low footprint on the processor, and low impact on battery life and cost. The solution should also be IoT platform agnostic and very easy to implement by IoT vendors, operate seamlessly over any wireless technologies (e,g, Zigbee, BLE, LoRA, etc.), and transparent to the existing network implementation. Finally, the solution should be automated and scalable for very high volumes, evolve with new security and encryption techniques being released, and last for a long time in the field with no necessity to update the edge devices with security patches.

Nirvana for IoT – How do you get there?

Many IoT systems deal with very high speed massive ingestion of real-time or near real-time data. Ideally, you want to do analysis of this real-time or hot data, together with very large historical or cold datasets, coupled with immediate alerting or reporting. If only you could do that on a single platform and thereby: reduce data movement, reduce data transformations, reduce complexity, and of course, reduce cost. This nirvana for IoT would enable well-informed and timely action to be taken, making your IoT solution all the more effective in delivering real business value.

This is possible today! Come find out how we did it.

MQTT -- The Lingua Franca of IoT

With the vast array of devices that coexist on the Internet of Things, the ability to build systems with many different devices is critical to the success of IoT deployments.  There is no single high level communication protocol for IoT devices, nor is there likely to be one in the future.  The best protocol for your IoT network may be determined by the type of data, the network bandwidth, or the processing power available.  Domain specific or system specific high level protocols will be the norm.

Message Queueing TT (MQTT) provides a standardized message delivery and queueing mechanism upon which edge nodes, gateways, and cloud solutions can built robust domain-specific or equipment-specific protocols.   MQTT is usable in low power, low bandwidth wireless as well as hard wired ethernet.  MQTT is available in open-source, proprietary, and software-as-a-service capabilities from multiple vendors.  MQTT is not a protocol itself, it is a technology for building robust protocols that can more easily intercommunicate – like the Lingua Franca created by merchants in the 17th century who each spoke different languages, but settled on a common language for business transactions.

Ed will discuss the technology behind MQTT, the queuing techniques, and the definable Quality of Service capabilities.  Use cases will be used to describe how MQTT can be used in edge-to-gateway as well as gateway-to-cloud communications.

IoT Security in a Zero Trust World

What is Zero Trust? Definition from Forrester: Zero Trust is a model for how security teams should: 

  • Redesign networks into secure micro-perimeters;
  • Limit the risks associated with excessive user privileges;
  • Dramatically improve security detection and response through analytics and automation; and
  • Increase data security through obfuscation techniques.

 Zero Trust demands that CIOs and CISOs move away from legacy, perimeter-centric models of information security — which are useless for today’s digital businesses, no longer bounded by the four walls of their corporation — to a model that is both data- and identity centric and extends security across the entire business ecosystem.” This session will explore

  • Are you exploring Zero Trust with IoT implementations?
  • Are you looking to adopt a “least privilege” strategy and strictly enforce access control?
  • Do you want to ensure all resources are accessed securely, regardless of location?
  • Are you looking for a uniform way to access applications across your on premises and cloud resources?

Dev Kits Without Profanity

Pretty much all developers have felt like hurling their laptop through the window or swearing like a sailor while trying to get something done with a new developer kit (or even an old one). It’s time for you to rise up and demand better-quality dev kits. This session will help you to see you’re not alone with the problems you’ve found in dev kits.

And manufacturers, you’ll hear some very practical guidelines about what makes an IoT dev kit and API good or bad. The session will cover the following:

- Product websites with practical facts, not marketing fluff

- What Hello World should really be (hint: not displaying “hello world”)

- Connectors and hardware: flimsy or sturdy?

- Providing code that does something, not trivial examples

- Commenting in sample code

- Verifying after each section so you don’t have to redo 47 steps

- Guide to getting started vs. getting stopped

- Showing the system scheme in a diagram

- Full descriptions for each API call

Companies that want developers to build on their platform or standard will find that their odds go way up as the frustration caused by development kits goes down.

Enhancing the Workplace with IoT: From Managing Buildings to Managing the User Experience

The real estate landscape is going through profound changes: occupier expectations are shifting, and we are seeing a move from workspace as a commodity to workplace as a service. Real estate management, therefore, increasingly needs to go from managing buildings to managing the occupant experience.  

To do this requires a focus of both the occupant using the building and the operational efficiency of the building. This is done through the use of IoT technologies to help capture actual performance data; and then leverage this data to drive real estate workplace and service planning. 

CRE services firms are partnering with IoT companies to offer personalized, hospitality-like services to building occupants. Using -an activity-based approach, we can deliver a superior occupant experience in a highly efficient manner through “sensor-to-value” smart building scenarios.

How LPWAN Enabled Smart Ground Support and Maintenance in Aviation (Case study)

The overhaul or modification of aircraft requires a lot of ground handling equipment necessary: Ladders, Ground Power units (GPU), vehicles, safety equipment. In Hamburg, Lufthansa Technik have 1,500 + pieces of this equipment distributed over the entire work area, and often faced the problem of finding the right equipment and understanding its status (booked, out of order, fueled/unfueled}? Highly skilled workers were wasting time searching for equipment. VIP customers couldn’t get out of the plane, because the right ladder couldn’t be found. Missing equipment also meant greater cost due to renting replacement tools from the airport.

Lufthansa Technik has launched a project to fix these pain points: Know both status and location of equipment and be able to act quickly to increase efficiency. This talk will outline both the technical outline of the project, challenges faced and successes so far.  

The foundation of the infrastructure is an IoT network with LoRa WAN and BLE. The stack includes three IT applications and platforms where the production crew can order equipment as easy as a pizza (1), the service employees can see the position like in a taxi app and can provide the equipment (2) and last, but not least, the coordinator can control and adjust the GSE easily within the planning tool which has all the existing data from our ERP system (3).  It’s a system for all kind of devices: mobile phone, tablet or desktop PC. With analytics, we have full transparency and are able to further increase the efficiency.

The system is running in Hamburg and Frankfurt, with proof of concepts in Munich and Malta. A further rollout is planned for other kind of use cases within the aviation like cargo containers, reusable boxes, parts and tooling. Again: Not only to track them but also know for example where and when an asset got a damage in order to clarify how is responsible for the repair cost: The customer or the ground handler.

Case Study: How LPWAN is Helping Levelgas Uberize Gas Tank Monitoring

Mexican company Levelgas is revolutionizing the management of stationary gas tanks in homes, leveraging Sigfox's LPWAN network.  Levelgas breaks the paradigm of traditional gas distribution, adding value to, both, the end user and the gas company.

Levelgas' solution integrates a device that is quickly placed directly in the tank and sends information (via Sigfox) to a mobile application where the user can check the gas level, calculate refills, verify the supply of the tank in real time , buy gas remotely and transparently, and know their consumption habits.

For the gas companies, Levelgas becomes a commercial partner with a unique advantage: generating data. This data becomes essential when it is translated into a deep knowledge of the market for better marketing strategies, the optimization of routes based on real demand, and a logistical efficiency that results in important savings.
