Radio Technologies for Connecting the Internet of Things: Training Course

Course Dates: 22 & 23 September, 2015
Venue: Central London, UK
Price: £945
radio technologies

The billions of devices that will comprise the Internet of Things require a new generation of radio networks to keep them connected, and a range of technologies are competing for position as a de facto standard. This course looks at the technical differences between the competing technologies, the companies behind them, and presents a view of their likely impact and market share.

The course looks at how existing networks are serving the needs of the IoT community, with case studies and examples so participants gain a sharp understanding of the limitations and challenges that IoT-specific networks need to address. The architectures of modern IoT solutions are presented, along with the pros and cons of the popular radio networks, so that participants learn how to match the right technology to any IoT project.

Course modules:

  • Introduction & Overview - What is the Internet of Things?, The need for IoT backhaul
  • Radio spectrum - IoT allocations, ISM bands, and cognitive radio techniques
  • IoT over cellular - Using existing infrastructure to solve new problems
  • New networks addressing new challenges - Sigfox, LoRA, Weightless, and the rest
  • Getting local - Meshing techniques, hub-based networks, scatternets and personal-area networking
  • Technical Standards, and the bodies behind them - industry associations, patent pools, and promoting companies
  • Technical comparisons - determining the right connectivity for every application
  • Industry verticals - Automotive, in home, medical, logistic, retail and smart cities
  • Case study examples - Smart meters, wearable sensors, next generation retail
