EVRYTHING
Every provider of a product or service understands the critical role of post-sale support, but what’s less well understood is how dramatically the nature of that support has shifted when it comes to the IoT. It ain’t the same ol’, same ol’, and it’s no longer about sitting by the phone waiting for something to break and then fixing it This distinguished group of panelists will tackle tough questions about supporting the Internet of Things, such as: How do you seamlessly support both customers and field operations? What’s the role of self-support in the connected world? How does the IoT make it easier to use “contextual intelligence” in supporting customers? How are concerns about privacy and security likely to impact our ability to connect to a customer’s devices and systems?

While the thermostat gets a lot of attention, the reality is home automation has an incredible amount of gadgets to manage, from refrigerators to doorbells. The question then is not what can be managed, but how can we manage everything? It’s not about the IoT device it’s about getting control over entire house no matter where you are. Your proximity and your ability to remotely manage blend together to create the home of the future. Are these capabilities transcending into the office building of the future and the way we work today?

Testbed Use Case 3: Emergency Services and Big Data
II-05
Dell
Smart Data can enhance and improve the service provided by emergency service vehicles such as ambulances. Consider the scenario where an emergency service vehicle is dispatched to an incident. The response time is critical. What if the real-time GPS data generated by the emergency service vehicle can be combined with other real-time data from diverse sources such as: current traffic levels for all routes to the incident, location of roadwork, diversions and road closures. By combining and analyzing these diverse raw datasets in real-time in order to provide valuable and intelligent route planning and insights for the emergency service vehicle, response times will improve, leading to better life enhancing outcome.

How Smart Cities’ IoT Capabilities Are Transforming the Workplace
CB-02
HARMAN Connected Services
MachNation
IoT’s seemingly endless capabilities are uniting city planners and technology experts in a mission to transform metropolises around the world into smart, connected cities. One of the most prominent areas of daily life that will reap the benefits of connected cities technologies is the workplace. The building’s architecture will be able to ingest streaming data and sync up with employee’s calendars, adjusting their meeting schedules according to availability of workspaces. Heat maps will be able to analyze real time space utilization. The office will act as a data platform, collecting all necessary pieces of information from the building to create more secured and organized facilities, establishing an environment conducive to productivity. Smart offices will foster environments that are conducive to creative, innovative thinking by ridding employees of the need to spend time maintaining the functionality of the physical work space. Smaller companies that take advantage of smart building technologies faster than larger companies will present a competitive advantage to prospective employees, and will attract the next generation of the workforce, who will seek modern workplaces that employ innovative technologies to keep day-to-day business operations running smoothly.

Utilizing the Wireless Lighting Control Network as a Platform for Enabling Industrial and Enterprise Applications
CB-03
Lunera Lighting Inc.
Digital Lumens
Telus
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.

Keynote Presentation by Ingenu - Five Surprises Awaiting IoT Device Makers
K-03
Ingenu
Technology is supposed to make our lives better. Technology packages up a lot of hard work into an easy to use package. The light bulb took the hard work of traditional oil lamp lighting and put it into a simple bulb/switch combo. Smart phones took the resources of the internet and put them in our pockets. We love to talk about Thomas Edison, Apple, and the other great innovators who put the hard work in to make what was hard, easy. But when it comes to the IoT, we don’t talk about our own innovators, the IoT device makers and what we do to enable them. These device makers do the hard work of combining the connectivity, the sensors, and the hardware into devices that makes our lives easier. Connectivity providers, like Ingenu, have an obligation to provide device makers with IoT connectivity that does the hard work on the wireless side, so they can do the hard work on the hardware side. If connectivity providers neglect their duty to provide true technology, then these innovators are hamstrung in how much simpler they can make our lives because they’ll be busy overcoming the connectivity’s shortcomings. The thing is, not every provider has done the hard work. In this presentation, we highlight some of these surprises and show that real technology brings true simplicity.
