Leaves to Lawns: AWS Greengrass at the Edge and Beyond

Presented by:
Alex González García - Supervisor, Software Engineering, Digi International
Richard Elberger - Partner Solution Architect, Amazon Web Services

November 28, 2017 • 2:30 PM

AWS Greengrass provides a wide range of opportunities from IoT gateway applications to building systems like those with microservice architectures. In this session, we first evaluate how AWS Greengrass fits into OEM, ODM, and IT service delivery models. We then wade into a gentle overview of AWS Greengrass and how it interoperates with AWS IoT and other AWS services. We walk through several key AWS Greengrass distributed architectures. Next, to help you accelerate your solution using AWS Greengrass, we discuss how AWS Greengrass fits into the AWS Cloud development and delivery model. The talk wraps up with a demonstration of AWS Greengrass facilitating communication between a closed machine to machine (M2M) network and AWS IoT.

ID-Nr. 6647 Selecting Cellular LPWAN Technology for the IoT
Tuesday; February 27, 2018
9:30 am – 10:00 am

Brent Nelson; Senior Product Manager, Digi International

For many Internet of Things (IoT) applications, high-throughput standards such as LTE-Advanced, with its throughput of 300Mbps, are overkill, since the amounts of data are relatively small. What’s more, devices and sensors are often deployed in far-flung, remote areas that often lack access to power, making a high-powered router unfeasible. To address this segment’s low-power, low-bandwidth requirements, the 3GPP, the cellular-standards body, is putting forth new “narrowband” standards. LTE Cat 1, LTE-M, and NB-IoT are designed to connect devices and sensors that dribble data and operate at very low power, allowing them to last multiple years on a battery.

ID-Nr. 6632 Yocto Project Linux as a Platform for Embedded Systems Design
Wednesday; February 28, 2018
4:00 pm – 4:30 pm

Alex Gonzalez; Software Engineering Manager, Digi International

Choosing an operating system for an embedded system is one of the most complex and critical tasks for building a connected device. It has significant long-term ramifications that affect both development and the market success of a product. There are several factors that make choosing a Linux-based OS a smart choice: acquisition cost, source code availability, and its broad architecture support —all these factors lead to a significantly improved time-to-market and a reduction in platform design risk and effort.
