Syed Zaeem Hosain, CTO of Aeris, chair of the IoT M2M Council, and author of second edition of “The Definitive Guide: The Internet of Things for Business,” will share his point of view on the rise of a low bandwidth connectivity solution known as Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) networks that are optimized for the Internet of Things (IoT).
In his speech, the founder of Aeris will explain what problem LPWA networks are solving and how they are built specifically for M2M and IoT communications to offer long-range, low-power consumption. He will share how LPWA networks solve cost and battery-life issues that cellular technology cannot and how LPWA networks solve range issues that technologies like Bluetooth or Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) struggle with; and cite examples of how the need for LPWAN is much greater in industrial IoT (IIoT), civic and commercial applications.
In these environments, the huge numbers of connected devices can only be supported if communications are efficient and power costs are low. Finally, Hosain will communicate a “call for action” that prompts the audience to embrace why IoT and LPWA together need each other and will help them on their journey of turning their unconnected products into connected services.
