Insider Sessions allow you to get up close and personal with some our top sponsors and exhibitors showcasing their latest innovations and solutions
Workshop 1: The Comprehensive Smart Environment: Get started understanding Space Utilization through a proven PoC process
Determine where your enterprise is in the analytics life cycle and complete a discovery exercise to identify opportunities for space utilization - a great place to begin building your smart environment.
- Complete a self-assessment to determine where your enterprise is in the analytics life cycle. Are you generating, collecting, analyzing, reacting or predicting?
- Learn how to begin a proof of concept in your own environment
- Conduct a discovery exercise to define the problem (first phase of Poc).
- Leave with resources to continue your journey
Wednesday, May 15 10:00 am - 11:00 am in Room 209/210
Workshop 2: Standards, Intellectual Property and the Future of the Internet of Things
Standards are an under-recognized driver of global commerce and, while usually associated with the telecommunications sector, are increasingly affecting new verticals as the internet of things (IoT) is realized across consumer and enterprise use cases. Standard-essential patents (SEPs) are patents covering technologies that have been implemented into a technical standard to the degree that an implementer of the technical standard must use the patent. SEP holders, in return for their patent being accepted into a technical standard, volunteer themselves to license the use of their SEP on fair, reasonable, and non-discriminatory (FRAND) terms.
Understanding legal, policy, and business aspects and developments related to IoT standards, SEPs, and the FRAND commitment is important to any organization that creates technology or provides products and services related to technical standards. Around the world, the role of standards and IP in innovation and the IoT specifically continues to evolve. This panel will discuss the interplay of standards, intellectual property, and the future of IoT innovation from the perspective of key IoT innovators.

Workshop 3: Discover the new STM32WB, a Multi-Protocol Dual-Core wireless MCU supporting Bluetooth™ Low Energy, Thread and Zigbee from STMicroelectronics
Looking to add 802.15.4 wireless connectivity, reduce your BOM cost, add functionality and advanced features into your product? The STM32WB dual-core multi-protocol wireless microcontroller is the right fit for you. Learn the basics of Bluetooth and how the STM32WB conforms to Bluetooth Low Energy 5.0. Experience how the STM32WB development tools, ecosystem and examples can take you from a NUCLEO board to a working design in this workshop. Designers new to STM32 microcontrollers are welcome to join and learn how the STM32Cube ecosystem can simplify your next embedded design.
This hands-on training is a working session and requires either a Windows® Laptop (Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 10) or a MacBook running Windows (Parallels, VM Fusion, etc.). Participants should have a basic understanding of the “C” programming language or equivalent. Note: Administrator rights are needed for software and driver installation. ST will provide the required P-NUCLEO-WB55 development kit and all software. SPACE IS LIMITED FOR THIS SESSION – FIRST COME, FIRST SEATED. Must be present and stay for training to receive the free kit.

Workshop 4 : IoT in Connected Health: Bringing the best technologies to life
The rise of support for connected health solutions has been fueled by existing care limitations and a rapidly aging population. Insurance payers have begun to realize the financial and care benefits of remote patient monitoring, while pharmas and medical device manufacturers have started to leverage the power of contextual, real-time data. Integron has served the connected health world for more than a decade, and in this workshop will bring together leading technology partners to provide education on the following:
- Understanding and demonstration of emerging technologies in cold chain, clinical trials, and remote patient monitoring.
- Learn how to implement real-time monitoring and visibility services for in-transit goods and remote assets across supply chains with a global reach.
- Explore solutions to increase efficiency, minimize product loss, and ensure regulatory compliance.
- Understand how managed services can help you manage risks, reduce costs, and improve time to market for enterprise IoT initiatives.
