Day 1: Wednesday Sept 7
2:00 pm - 4:30 pm on the IoT Leadership Stage in the M2M Zone Pavilion

2:00 pm - Exploring IoT Business Models for Generating New Revenue Streams

Speaker: Flavio Gomes, CEO, LogiSense
The future of IoT / M2M promises billions of connected devices coming online over the next several years. The benefits to adopting IoT include greater productivity, reduced operational costs, improved customer experience, and an ability to expand business to new markets. This proliferation of connectivity however is creating a highly complex environment, with an ecosystem of consumers and providers generating huge numbers of transactions that require metering, measuring and ultimately monetization. What are the market opportunities for service providers, and how will these companies need to change their infrastructure in order to take advantage of this IoT opportunity?

2:30 pm - Power to the Devices

Speaker: Michael Orr, VP of Sales & Partnership, N.A., SigFox
Power to the Devices will examine the gap between IoT today and 2020. The challenges that have inhibited IoT from taking off - cost, battery consumption, and user experience need solutions now to enable the predicted explosion of 100+bn connected objects in the next four years. Learn how SIGFOX, the only commercially available IoT-dedicated connectivity solution is solving these challenging and enabling the connectivity of billions of devices for agriculture, smart cities, logistics, and many more industries in need of scalable IoT connectivity.

3:00 pm - Low Power WIDER Area: How Satellite Messaging Extends the IoT

Speaker: Geoff Brue-Payne, Business Development Manager, Inmarsat
The concept of doing more with less is not new, but it translates to the accelerating pace of advances in a number of areas driving low power networks offering lower cost and smaller components and longer battery life that allows for the placement of sensors and controls farther afield. We'll show you how even though you can't put a tower everywhere you might want one, you can still get quality coverage, cost effectively, using satellite...today.

3:30 pm - IoTaaS - How does it benefit you

Speaker: Niclas Andersson, Director Business Development - IoT & Emerging Technologies, T-Systems N.A.
Instead of researching for months and negotiating with and manage multiple various vendors, contracts and integrations both locally and globally to be able to design, build and deploy your IoT products, learn how IoTaaS from T-Systems can help your business get to market quicker, easier and more cost effective.

4:00 pm - Digi Wireless Solution Saves Thousands for ElectriCities

Speakers: Curt Ahart, V.P. Cellular Product Management, DIGI International & John Coates, Applications Engineer - NCMPA1, ElectriCities
ElectriCities, a management services supplier to North Carolina municipal power agencies, saved over $300,000 annually on telemetry charges with a Digi wireless remote monitoring system that obtains real-time data on substation meters and generators in the field. Savings include reduced maintenance contracts, fewer equipment repairs, and decreased lightning strike costs.

Day 2: Thursday Sept 8
1:30 pm - 4:00 pm on the IoT Leadership Stage in the M2M Zone Pavilion

1:30 pm - Attention Makers: An Open Platform for the Mobile Internet of Things!

Speaker: Mark A. Wells, President & CEO, Positioning Universal
There is an explosion of IoT Ideas! Products have been comparably few. Implementation complexities have been getting in the way. Costs are another barrier. Positioning Universal's INVENT IOT platform offers a cost-effective end-to-end solution for open development. Our fully integrated IoT-based cloud implementation has been designed to be complementary to our IoT hardware device platform. Create JavaScript for both the cloud-based application and the device, that is easily configurable and OTA capable. Makers will experience a new paradigm in IoT development. Please come to see how easy it is to bring your IoT dreams to life!

2:00 pm - IoT, Business Beyond the Data

Speaker: Alan Atkins, Vice President and Global Head, IoT, WIPRO
There must be very few ideas in the recent past with the staggering scale and size as the Internet of Things (IoT). By doing the digital equivalent of holding hands, IoT enablers-sensors, devices, software, hardware, gateways and networks-will be responsible for around US $1,400 billion in end-point spending . And that is what conversations about the IoT have been dominated by: commodity enablers. The conversation needs to shift to a more important one: "What is the value my business will gain? What is the value I must look for?" And more importantly what is the experience that IoT needs to drive, to ensure this business value. This session will explore this and more.

2:30 pm - Iridium Satellite Communications Complements Cellular Based M2M Solutions

Speaker: Tim Last, VP & GM, M2M Line of Business, Iridium
Iridium is the only satellite service company that can deliver IOT applications to 100% of the globe. To help enable new IOT based applications Iridium is launching a new satellite m2m device that will enable customers to more rapidly add Iridium satellite to their existing terrestrial based solutions while avoiding the expense associated with ground up development and satellite specific terminal certification. This new product will be targeted to Fleet Management, Telematics, Safety, and other remote monitoring solution providers operating in regions of the world where terrestrial coverage is not sufficient. This flexible "dual-mode" configuration can economically provide the coverage required for critical data communications worldwide.

3:00 pm - Enabling the IoT

Speaker: Christian Allred, SVP International Solution Sales, ORBCOMM
According to Gartner, the importance of the IoT has been accepted by almost all. The problem, according to the industry analyst's survey, is that many don't know how to take advantage of it. For more than 30 years, ORBCOMM has been connecting fixed and mobile assets, long before there were terms like IoT or M2M. Building off of the company's knowledge and experience, ORBCOMM will review the IoT landscape, define the components that make up M2M/IoT solutions and detail how to make the development, procurement and installation phases less intimidating. This presentation will incorporate use cases to illustrate best practices and uh oh moments.

3:00 pm - Connected Cows and Better Mousetraps: LORA use cases for the Internet of Everywhere

Speakers: Philip Meyers, Head of Strategy, Inmarsat & Mike Mulica, CEO, Actility
Imagine if you could deploy a network of sensors in a matter of minutes that allowed you to constantly keep track of the status, position and behavior of each and every one of your assets -- from the wellbeing of your cows to the whereabouts of your shipping container; from the ripeness of your coffee beans to the demise of pesky pests. And imagine if you could deploy that network anywhere around the globe, setting up your own robust network in just minutes, with a range of solutions all leveraging the same protocol? Well, don't imagine, but attend the Actility/Inmarsat spotlight session. Make smarter connections.
