IoT IT - BI and Machine Learning (Grand D)
Predictive and Prescriptive Analytics
At a simple level, predictive analytics tells us what to expect, while prescriptive tells us how to manage it. How do IoT information streams tell us about the trends of our machinery? How much data is needed for analytic systems to spot trends? If trends can be spotted, can analytics data make it so that IoT failure rate is minimized? How can analytics add to the availability of systems?

Utilizing the Wireless Lighting Control Network as a Platform for Enabling Industrial and Enterprise Applications
Lunera Lighting Inc.
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) needs to connect several devices to a common network enabling efficient, reliable data transfer. For most industrial settings, connecting sensors and equipment to the facility network is difficult and tedious; particularly in retrofit applications, where installing new wiring is troublesome, if not impossible. On the other hand, data shows that building owners who have upgraded their lighting infrastructure to wireless lighting controls are easily able to take advantage of additional IIoT opportunities and use the wireless lighting system as the backbone for enabling other IIoT technology applications.

Driver Assisted - Insurance Reduced - Connected Cars
Swiss Re Management (US) Corporation
Octo Telematics North America
If we want to talk about convergence, we don’t have to look beyond telematics and the automotive industry. Connected vehicles are making humans better drivers by delivering alerts and alarms concerning our surroundings and our driving behavior. How does this impact insurance? Have we seen an improvement in Highway safety? Are there lessons are to be learned that can be shared with other industries?
IoT Enterprise Operations (Grand E)
SIMs, ESIMs and IoT Opportunities
NextGen Global Resources
Oasis Smart SIM
Interoperability, in cellular networks, was achieved with the use of SIMs to manage identity, authorization and roaming. For IoT, SIMs often represent a costly addition to the modules and overall deployments. Hear how the use of ESIMs has become an alternative to providing the network’s requirement for security and a value ad for an IoT network

Testbed Use Case 2: How Industrial IoT Solutions and Services Unlock New Value for People, Assets, and Operations
Embedded connectivity and intelligence is enabling pervasive sensing in industrial environments, resulting in more and more asset, environmental and operational data being generated in real time. However, that data is only useful if translated into actionable intelligence and better business decisions. This presentation will demonstrate just how the acceleration of Industrial IoT, combined with mobility and the cloud, is enabling businesses to deliver new and innovative IoT solutions and services today. You’ll see how real-world IoT applications are unlocking efficiency and sustainability for people, assets, and operations in buildings, utilities, smart grids, industrial processes, and even in the underlying data center infrastructure required for computing at the industrial edge. Finally you’ll discover the critical necessity for an open platform and architecture that allows for delivery of Industrial IoT solutions at scale.

Enabling Voice Driven Smart Home Experiences with Amazon Alexa
Alexa, the voice service that powers Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Amazon Tap and Amazon Fire TV, provides a set of built-in abilities, or skills, that enable customers to interact with smart home devices in a more intuitive way using voice. Examples of these skills include the ability to control lighting and temperature. Customers can then access these new skills simply by making a command to Alexa. This session will walk through the Smart Home Skill API and showcase what is possible today.
