Connecting behind-the-meter assets: Enabling new energy services 

Advances in communication technology and the cost-value ratio of hardware and deployment is raising the opportunity to deliver new services to large energy customers. 

By reaching behind the meter, utilities and energy services companies can offer a way to connect any customer asset that stores, generates, consumes or measures power.

Think of a large manufacturer wanting to take part in a utility demand response scheme in exchange for a preferential tariff - an Energy Network of Things platform is the enabler to make this happen.

New database architectures are the leading edge in IoT/M2M security and offer great promise for secure online transactions. It all started with Bitcoin but has much broader implications for IoT. Now there is a flurry of industry initiatives to apply blockchain and related distributed ledger architectures to IoT/M2M applications, including Openchain, Hyperledger, and Multichain, to name just a few. This session will discuss the concept of distributed ledgers, and how they can be used in IoT applications.
Wednesday, Jun 20th, 8:00 AM - 8:45 AM, room 207.

14th Annual International Conference on Precision Agriculture
June 24-27 | Quebec, Canada
Precision Agriculture, sponsored by ISPAG – International Society of Precision (affiliate of Info AG) 

Michael Finegan, Director of IoT Business Development will speak on the many faces of LPWAN and it's relation to agriculture. With LPWA, many alternatives have emerged – some fall under the 3GPP standard and use licensed spectrum such as LTE Cat-M1 and NB-IoT, while other alternatives such as LoRaWANTM are based on non-3GPP standards and use unlicensed ISM spectrum. 

Sensors Expo & Conference
June 26-28 | San Jose
Join us in San Jose for the industry's largest event dedicated to sensors, connectivity, and systems. 

On June 27th from 10:00-10:30 am you can listen in while MultiTech CTO David Smith joins James Brehm of James Brehm & Associates and Carl Ford of Crossfire Media address the question: Where Moore's Law and Metcalf's Law Collided - A supernova of activity or a black hole?"

When you combine Moore's Faster and Cheaper with Greater and Exponential, you have a dramatic opportunity. Is IoT about to Explode the Market or implode the Internet? 

Then, at 12:15 pm, hear Michael Finegan answer the hot topic: Is cellular right for your application or should you LPWAN

Cellular connectivity is reliable, simple, and available virtually everywhere. With the advent of new services like Cat M1, it is more affordable than ever and has very modest power requirements making it ideal for many, but not all, IoT applications. Explore the criteria for determining whether cellular is your best choice. 

Finally, on June 28th at 10 a.m., hear from David Smith again, this time representing the LoRa Alliance as a LoRaWAN Ambassador, speaking on Leveraging LoRaWAN in your Industrial Application.

Webinar: Choosing the Right LPWAN Solution for Your IoT Application
Thursday - June 7 | 11:00 am EST

Low-Power, Wide Area Networks (LP-WAN) come in a variety of flavors – making use of licensed and unlicensed spectrum, and with a variety of trade-offs in terms of bandwidth, latency, security, and more. While LP-WAN connectivity is generally more applicable to applications where lower cost can justify lower bandwidth than traditional cellular connections, just some of the current choices include NB-IoT, LTE-M, LoRa, and Sigfox, each with its own characteristics. This session will examine those trade-offs in the context of actual use-cases that are being commercialized.
