IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) Steers the Future of the Internet of Things (IoT)
PISCATAWAY, N.J. --(Business Wire)--
the world's largest professional organization advancing technology for
humanity, announced today that the IEEE
Standards Association (IEEE (News - Alert)-SA) will host an Internet
of Things Workshop, 18-19 September 2014 at the Computer History
Museum in Mountain View, Calif. This two-day event will provide an open,
engaging platform to discuss opportunities, impacts and challenges
around the convergence of technologies known as Internet
of Things (IoT), with a special focus on the need for more
interdisciplinary approaches to the design of products and services for
"From smart cities to smart homes to eHealth to cleaner transportation,
standardization in IoT will provide economic opportunity to these areas
and many more by increasing interoperability and fueling the economy of
scale. IEEE-SA is one of the driving forces behind IoT standardization
and will continue to contribute to the advancing of IoT by participating
and hosting of IoT workshops, events and projects," said Oleg Logvinov,
chair of the workshop planning committee and director, special
assignments, Industrial and Power Conversion Division,
STMicroelectronics (News - Alert). "The IEEE-SA IoT Workshop is a great venue for this
collaboration. Here experts will gather to discuss technical and
business challenges and opportunities, and how standards evelopment
will help shaping the future of IoT."
Highlights of the agenda include a panel discussion on IoT and security
led by Ed Sperling of Low-Power Engineering, a keynote discussing
whether IoT brings value to the consumer from Stacey Higginbotham of
GigaOM; a panel led by Serge Leef of Mentor Graphics (News - Alert) on IoT and
go-to-market strategies; a keynote on IEEE P2413TM, IEEE
Standard for an Architectural Framework for the Internet of Things, a
panel on IEEE standards that bring value to the IoT, and an analyst view
of IoT by Michael Palma of IDC.
Oleg Logvinov will also take stage at Cisco's
Internet of Things World Forum 14-16 October 2014, Chicago,
Illinois. At this IEEE-SA sponsored event, Oleg will be presenting in a
breakout session titled "Standards: Breaking Down the Cross-Vertical
Barriers" on Wednesday, 15 October, 11:15 a.m.-12:00 p.m. The breakout
session will provide an opportunity to share the results of the
ecosystem study on IoT standards conducted by the IEEE-SA and provide
real-life examples of IoT applications across verticals.
IoT is a valuable, innovative technology that brings many benefits to
industry and the public. IEEE-SA has a number of standards, projects and
events that are directly related to creating the environment needed for
a vibrant IoT.
