At Radio Wireless Week in Anaheim the Multi-Society IEEE Internet of Things Initiative (IoT) and the Microwave Theory and Techniques Society will be sponsoring a one and a half day Summit on January 14th and 15th, 2018. If one were to characterize a theme for the Summit, it would be: “Indispensible Wireless Connectivity.”
The Summit is a call to action for those interested in the science, engineering, and deployment of wireless system, components, products, and services. The goal of the IEEE Initiative is to advance and nurture the adoption of IoT for the benefit of society. The Summit is an opportunity to participate with your colleagues in sharing experiences and knowledge about IoT and where wireless systems and components can solve some of the challenges posed by IoT Application requirements. It is also to chart the future evolution of the technology that will enable effective radio transmitter and receiver performance to support the projected demands of IoT.
We look forward to a balanced participation from industry, the public sector, and the research community at the event.
As a preface to the Summit this piece describes:
- What IoT is about and the role of IEEE
- Why wireless systems are crucial
- Examples of IoT applications
- What you can expect the Summit to cover
- What the IoT Topical Working Group on Connectivity and Communications is chartered to accomplish.
