Building IoT Applications with MicroPython and Digi XBee® 3 Cellular
Wednesday, April 15
8:00 am - 10:00 am CDT

Building IoT Applications with MicroPython and AWS or Azure (continued from session 1)
Wednesday, April 15
10:15 am - 12:15 pm CDT
Presented by: Eugene Fodor, Software Engineering Manager; Digi International

MicroPython is a Python dialect specifically intended for MicroControllers. By using MicroPython on a smart modem such as the Digi XBee 3 Cellular product line you can quickly add connectivity and edge intelligence to a variety of IoT applications and use cases where you want to read sensors or actuate controls.

The cloud offerings that we cover in the two sessions specifically target IoT applications and devices.

What Attendees Will Do:
Attendees will connect an Digi XBee 3 Cellular LTE device to the Internet, and the Digi Remote Manager® cloud. Attendees will then write Python code to build Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE) smart light switch and send data to the cloud based on business logic on the device. Next, we will then send a request to the device from Digi Remote Manager to demonstrate how to control the BLE light switch over cellular.

The second session will modify the program to connect and publish data from the sensor using MQTT to AWS and Azure.

First session Learning Objectives: How to use MicroPython to create a simple IoT application.

 ** Second session Learning Objectives: How to use MicroPython to extend the simple IoT application to popular IoT cloud environments (Azure and AWS).

5G is here: Are you ready?
Thursday, April 16, 2020
11:00 am - 11:45 am CDT
Presented by: Harald Remmert, Sr. Director, Research & Innovation; Digi International

5G for IoT not only means more devices will be connected, but also that more devices will be better connected.  The next-G improvements include higher speeds, lower latency and lower power requirements – all driving more efficient, more effective and more profitable business solutions that are not possible today.

But is 5G right for your use case, and when will it be ready?  How does the 5G ecosystem need to evolve over the next years to deliver the promise of 5G? And are you ready for it?  How do your systems need to evolve?

At this session, we will discuss where to start, what to consider when moving from 4G to 5G, and what else you should consider to truly benefit from 5G.

Key concepts

  • From 4G evolution to 5G revolution
  • Do LTE-M & NB-IoT have a place in 5G?
  • 5G Sub-6 & mmWave
  • 5G-NR Light
  • Private LTE (CBRS)
  • The power of eSIMs
  • Edge Compute
