IoT Community, Announces Exclusive Agenda for its 3rd Annual IoT Slam Live 2019 Conference

The Internet of Things Community (IoT Community)  has announced the exclusive agenda for its IoT Slam Live Conference, the 9th conference in the highly acclaimed and coveted series of IoT Slam events, taking place on June 20-21, at the Archie K. Davies Conference Center, in RTP, North Carolina, and broadcasting in real-time globally online, easily accessible on any desktop, laptop, tablet, or mobile device.

Tracking and behavioral analysis in public places

When is it appropriate to track behavior in public spaces? IoT technology makes it possible to track behaviors through visual systems or the interaction between dedicated hardware and personal devices. But does that make it right? The EU-funded PATH project is developing an approach that balances public safety with individuals’ right to privacy. This could be used for gauging crowd size and monitoring crowd flows for public safety and commercial purposes.

Verizon’s Narrowband IoT Network now covers more than 92% of the US population

Narrowband Internet of Things (NB-IoT) technology is specifically designed for IoT applications that could benefit from access to lower cost chipsets, superior coverage and significantly prolonged battery life. The NB-IoT Network provides the ability to manage both IP and non-IP data traffic. This ability to handle non-IP data traffic allows for the creation of much simpler and more cost-effective IoT devices which are ideal for solutions that aren’t designed to be always mobile such as alarm panels, environmental sensors, industrial appliances, factory equipment and parking meters.

Creating building-to-building connections

The digitization of everything is creating opportunities for businesses to create more value from the network infrastructure. Smart organizations are now placing the network infrastructure front and center in the planning process because it is crucial the network is set up to scale with the applications needed today and tomorrow without major and expensive add-ons. Measure twice, cut once, is the saying. For example, is your customer ready for advanced applications using WiFi, small cells, cameras, and more?

Copper cabling’s future stretches far beyond the data center

Twisted-copper cabling may not be used in data centers for much longer, but there are plenty of applications where twisted pair cabling is emerging as a strong contender. Increasingly, building applications are connecting to their facilities’ IP networks. This means connecting, integrating, controlling, and powering non-traditional IP devices such as lights, cameras, and many others to the network for maximum efficiency. Embedded sensors in these devices will collect billions of data points that will produce actionable analytics to drive productivity improvements. Copper cabling’s ability to deliver power to end devices is providing the medium with opportunities to serve multiple building systems. PoE is emerging as the most important enabler of devices that use structured cabling in enterprise buildings today, which is critical as IT managers look to drive more value out of their installed copper cabling plant and connect more devices.

What is the Internet of Things? Internet of Things definitions

The Internet of Things as a network of connected devices with unique identifiers in the form of an IP address which have embedded technologies or are equipped with technologies that enable them to sense, gather data and communicate about the environment in which they reside and/or themselves. The potential and reality of the IoT resides in the ways the IoT is used to leverage the insights from data, automate, digitize, digitalize, optimize and in more mature stages transform processes, business models and even industries in a scope of digital transformation.

How IOT Can Help to Increase Workplace Security | GoodWorkLabs

According to the National Safety Council more than 4,500,000 injuries occur at workplaces every year. The most significant amount of help to decrease injuries is increasingly coming through the Internet of Things (IoT), which can bring a lot of substantial improvements in the area of workplace safety.Improvements in productivity, increased capacity, enhanced worker safety, and lesser costs are a few advantages which are in store for the future of IIoT
