Keynote Presentation by Mastercard: The Future of Retail IoT
K-05
Stephane Wyper Senior Vice President, New Commerce Partnerships and Commercialization Mastercard
Today, it is vital that retailers know their customers better than they know themselves. Success can no longer be defined as giving customers what they want, but by anticipating what consumers need before they need it. Moving forward, success will be measured by how well retailers can personalize, customize and digitize consumers’ experiences. This is why the in-store experience is ready for disruption. From the fitting room mirror all the way to the storefront window to browsing and buying in a self-service environment – consumers are looking for seamless, integrated experiences, regardless of the channel allowing them to transition effortlessly from their digital device to physical store and move between platforms such as apps to text messages. The next evolution of IoT will be about the collection of the IoT experience made possible by a group of devices — and making those devices work in concert to deliver a more fully IoT-enhanced experience.

Despite the growth of the IoT, ever approaching ubiquity, most devices are still unconnected. And many enterprises are either reluctant to buy all-new, smart equipment, or not in the position to make such a capital outlay. The answer, of course if aftermarket add-ons. LPWAN can be a critical piece of that solution. Delegates in this session will learn how and why.

Addressing IoT Protocol Soup with a Dual Transformation Engine
TH-02
VP Chair of the EdgeX Foundry Technical Steering Committee and Distinguished Engineer & IoT Platform Development Team Lead Dell Technologies
Today’s IoT landscape often requires developers to connect a variety of sensors and devices speaking dozens of protocols into IoT platforms. Likewise, the IoT platforms, after ingesting data from the sensors and devices, have to prepare the data for a particular endpoint (cloud or enterprise system) or get the data into an intelligence or analytics engine. Again, developers must negotiate a diversity of endpoint protocols, data formats, and special needs. Our IoT platforms are, like it or not for the foreseeable future, dual transformation engines. In this session, learn how EdgeX Foundry – an open source, edge platform backed by more than 70 companies - is creating a scalable and flexible platform that will address all the types of sensors (and their protocols) and all the cloud/integration systems (and their protocols) that need to be woven into your IoT solution.

Advances in AI are already demonstrating the potential to augment what humans are capable of, and they are already fundamentally changing our lives in ways we couldn’t have imagined even five years ago. As AI becomes a critical part of mainstream products, services and other innovations the deployment of these technologies becomes critical. Fog and edge are deployment models for AI that is already revolutionizing the way that we think about the intelligent edge. In this session we will explore how fog and edge are delivering on AI’s promise in terms of rapid deployment and scaling, as well as enabling scenarios that are challenging with the cloud alone.

Managing LPWAN Devices for Security and Firmware Controls
LP-06
Senior Director of Marketing Multitech Vice President of Content & Events Advantage Business Marketing Editorial Content Director, Manufacturing and Distribution Pillars Advantage Business Marketing Sr. Manager, Product Management US Cellular Solutions Engineer Nokia
The landscape of IoT Devices continues to shrink in form factor, bandwidth, and power consumption. These attributes demand an endpoint to be super-efficient in onboarding, software delivery mechanisms, as well as security constructs. Often, the devices are addressable through non-Internet Protocol naming and require data delivery to be handling in payloads meant for signaling traffic. Most solutions look to provide a way to retrieve data in proprietary methods and consider the endpoint to be disposable if modifications are required on the embedded software. Introduced in this session will be methods and procedures for retaining the endpoints with a software management lifecycle approach to maintaining and improving the capabilities for the full mechanical age of a device.

Greenlight General Manager City of Wilson, NC Governing Board Chair for the Civil Infrastructure Platform (CIP) Project and Head of Smart Embedded Systems Siemens AG Technical Steering Committee Chair for the Civil Infrastructure Platform (CIP) Project and Senior Manager of Open Source Technology Toshiba Corporation
Power plants, radar systems, traffic lights, communications and weather systems are ingrained in our every day life. Many of these infrastructure systems exist for decades, if not longer, so security and longevity are paramount. Currently, all of these systems are built from scratch, with little re-use of existing software building blocks, which drains resources, money and time. It also leads to fragmentation and duplication of effort. This is where open source comes in. Many of these critical civil infrastructure systems are powered by Linux or Debian, which offers a golden opportunity to streamline efforts. For example. Civil Infrastructure Platform (CIP), aims to speed implementation of Linux-based civil infrastructure systems, build upon existing open source foundations and expertise, establish de facto standards by providing a base layer reference implementation, and contribute to and influence upstream projects regarding industrial needs.
