Director of Wireless Products and IoT
RFID, NFC, Bluetooth, WiFi, Zigbee, ZWave, SigFox, TV Whitespace, MEMS, LoRa, Cellular, GPS, Glonass, Beidou, Satellite . . . If it’s all Greek to you, you’re not alone. The truth is, most drivers couldn’t care less about what type of radios or sensor technology is behind their connected car they are, rightly, primarily interested in the service. Of course, this is no consolation to the engineers, programmers and operations folks tasked with developing, deploying and ultimately managing those applications. Join us as we discuss the landscape of different technologies and what the industry is doing to make sure they all “speak the same language” despite operating at different points on the spectrum.

The Guiding Light of PoS: Beacons
VP of Business Development
Principal Analyst: Enterprise Services
Lost in the Mall? We have an app for that! Trying to find your receipt? We have an App for that too. Hear how beacons are bringing new dimensions and data analytics to retail point of sale to impact everything from the effectiveness of displays to loyalty strategies with customers to enabling the consumer, retailer and credit card company to track the entire shopping experience. Learn are marketing metrics changing as a result of this new technology.
Supply Chain Logistics: Realities of Worldwide Delivery
Locus Traxx Worldwide
Hear how innovative wireless tracking can provide actionable data results to improve transportation logistics. Companies ship using a variety of internal and external fleets, rail, ship and air carriers. The requirements are for a sophisticated worldwide tracking intelligence to manage shipping logistics. The session will follow each step of the supply chain from initial packaging through its destination. Conclusions will be offered based on the extensive data capture that is provided through the sophisticated tracking. The volume of data collected provides the “Big Data” that can provide new insights into how IoT will benefit the transportation industry.

Unleashing Value from Analyzing Data Generated by Internet of Things
Director, IoT Strategy
Executive Director, Marketing, Information Management
For businesses to derive value from the massive amounts of realtime data in the emerging IoT world, it's imperative they transform their thinking, processes and infrastructure to act in seconds not hours and days. Forwardthinking companies are converting the vast amounts of data into actionable insights by applying advanced analytics technologies designed specifically to handle the requirements of realtime big data analytics. Providing deeper value and the ability to decipher what the data actually means to the business is what will set successful companies apart. This presentation will cover how realtime analytics generates value for IoT.

From Sensor Data to Embedded Processing and Security: a Holistic View at the Edge of IoT
When accounting for industry projections that estimate nearly half a trillion Internet of Things IoT sensors by 2025, the term “edge node” is somewhat of an injustice. Embedded processing and sensor solutions are a keystone of endtoend IoT deployments, as they exist on the front lines of both data capture and analysis and IoT security. Meanwhile, industry is increasingly demanding new levels of price, performance, and power optimization from these systems, as well as eversmaller form factors that meet the requirements of deployment in the wild. Innovation is now required.In “From analyzing sensor data to embedded processing and security: A holistic consideration at the edge of the IoT,” Freescale’s Ian Chen provides a comprehensive perspective on IoT sensor platform design. From edge analytics and localized processing to sensor fusion and cybersecurity, this handson demonstration will illustrate how silicon vendors and industry organizations are collaborating across hardware, software, and connectivity to provide an integrated approach to development at the IoT edge.
