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.
