Internet of Things: From Prototype to Production

In this hands-on workshop developers, testers, and product managers learn how to to quickly create connected IoT prototypes that can lead to commercial IoT solutions using pre-certified hardware and the ARM mbed platform. This “prototype-to-production” workshop guides you on how to employ crowdsourced libraries for sensors and peripherals using a cloud-based IDE and move data from edge sensor/processor to cloud platform as a service using a cellular module. Learn how to build successful IoT solutions based on proven business practices and avoid the critical pitfalls of IoT development. Join industry veterans—Brian Hicks, IoT Smart Labs; Brian Huey, Sprint Corporation; and Paul Jaeger, MultiTech Solutions—who share valuable insight on developing solutions for speed-to-market in M2M and IoT segments.

Participants will learn:

  • Rapid IoT prototyping using a cloud based compiler
  • Crowdsourcing libraries to add drivers from common sensors and peripherals
  • Cellular communication enablement to add macro-network capabilities
  • Proven practices for concept-to-commercial development and launch of IoT products

Note: Each participant will receive a development kit and data plan for prototyping purposes. Including: Multitech DragonFly with ST Sensor Board. Carrier instruction of M2M, sample deployments, lessons learned and LTE/Cat MTC standards. M2M cellular Service. Hands on Lab Development communicating over the cellular network
