25th Workshop: Technologies for Successful IoT Integration

6 February 2018 at imec, Leuven.

Technologies for Successful IoT Integration

The huge variety in wireless technologies and data formats in IoT devices from multiple vendors can make the deployment, data acquisition and management of IoT networks a very challenging task.

While vertical integration for specific applications domain is often supported by industry consortia, the horizontal integration of IoT use cases is far less easy. An interesting initiative is the OneM2M standardization that promotes interoperability between a wide range of applications and services such as in smart home, smart cities, smart industry etc.

In this workshop we will bring you an overview of standardisation activities and new (software) methodologies for fast and easy integration of IoT applications, both at the mobile node side and in the cloud.

All innovations will be (live) demonstrated during a guided tour.

The workshop is open to all players in IoT, from technology providers and system integrators, to providers and end-users of solutions for IoT applications.
