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.

What Are the Necessary Attributes of Smart IoT Devices?
Thursday, March 1, 2018
13:00 pm – 13:30 pm
Exhibitor’s Forum – Hall 3A, stand 610

Scott Nelson; Vice President of Product, Digi International

What is a smart edge device? The Internet of Things and Industry 4.0 are driving high ROIs and new revenue opportunities as the use of smart edge devices is becoming more common in almost every industry in every region of the globe. And, with increased intelligence at the edge of the network, these devices are being used for data collection and control, but what exactly makes them smart?

We will define the key attributes of a smart end node:

  • Simple and easy to use – ideally supporting remote management and configuration
  • Agility: modularity, multiple ranges, dual/hybrid radios, software/OTA upgradable
  • Reliability: always connected, always up to date, always accurate from a stable supplier
  • SWaP: reduced size, weight and especially low-power for battery-powered applications
  • Programmability: business rules, machine learning, logic at the edge, reduced latency
  • Security: Building things that are secure is smart.
