Low-Power cellular connectivity - new LP-WAN for private and public networks, as well as narrow-band alternatives from more traditional service providers that are expected to come on line - will lower the cost of connected devices. This is about more than just smart meters - all manner of connected devices that do not require large data-set transmission and benefit from lowered power consumption in the field stand to benefit. At the same time, energy harvesting, wireless charging, low-voltage sensors, and enhanced battery technologies are contributing to longer-lasting, lower-maintenance devices in the field. Exactly how far can the cost of device connectivity be pushed downward?

Webinar: The Future of Connectivity for IoT: eUICC and LPWA
As cellular expands its place in the IOT market, mobile networks will need to adapt. One of the barriers to adapting cellular is the SIM card that locks organizations to a single network operator for the lifetime of their deployments. Another barrier is that cellular doesn't meet the cost, power, or coverage requirements of most IoT applications.
Join us as we discuss different global connectivity options and how technologies like eUICC and LPWA (low power wide area) are posed to change the future of connectivity for internet of things.

M2M Zone Conference at CTIA Super Mobility 2016
Applications developers are struggling to stay one step ahead of the hackers, with big consequences for the future of the IoT/M2M sector. How safe are IoT deployments, and what is being done to make them safer? This session will cover Trusted Environments, encryption technology, and compliance regimes for making IoT applications as safe as possible from edge to cloud.
New connectivity options and devices that use low-power consumption to lower costs and ease life-cycle management could usher in truly large-scale deployments. Low-frequency networks (LP-WAN) are being touted as true alternatives to mainstream carrier networks for IoT/M2M, but the telecom industry looks set to respond with their own LTE-M alternatives (including Cat 0 and NB-IoT). And embedded devices are now being introduced that can operate on as little as several small batteries for several years at high positional accuracy. This session will cover the current state of the low-power IoT technology race.

Webinar: Protecting the IoT: Threat Aware IoT Gateways
As IoT-centric organizations look to take advantage of the integration of IT with OT, preventing cross-over by Internet-borne threats is increasingly important. To combat this issue, the development and use of IoT Gateways is becoming a preferred method to protect critical infrastructure. This webinar explores the growth and role of the IoT Gateways in the market, and also takes a look at what the integration of threat intelligence can do to augment their effectiveness.

Webinar: Will Low-Power Devices Bring High-Volume IoT Deployments?
Embedded devices are already being introduced that can run for several years on as little as a few small consumer-style batteries and still provide excellent accuracy and transmission capacity. Some say this could be the cornerstone technology that facilitates the move towards a more 'managed service' approach - particularly with very high-volume deployments in the Industrial IoT sector - and allow the industry to begin to realize its full potential. Looking forward, embedded devices will be able to provide more intelligence at the edge and increased device-level security, while taking advantage of even more power-saving technology like energy harvesting. This webinar will look at low-energy devices that are working in the field now - with special emphasis on current use-cases - as well as look into the future of device-level technology.
