IoT, IoE, M2M...Alphabet Soup or Are We Creating a Smarter Planet?
M2M-01
Principal Analyst
Machina Research
Distinguished Engineer
IBM
Group Sales Director, Global M2M
Intel
Distinguished Systems Architect
Cisco
Some of the messaging about M2M seems to be suggesting that the Internet of Things gives us all access to a smarter planet, while other companies explanations sound like we have everything on Intranets taking advantage of connectivity, but isolated in accessibility. When we use these terms, are there advantages and disadvantages? Do these various terms suggest architectures or is the differentiation moot?

AT&T
Vice President, Marketing
Axeda
Head of Market Strategy
GE Software
When you combine Metcalfe’s law with Moore’s law, does the exponential growth of devices equate to cost savings, or are the savings hard to define at the micro level but intuitively obvious at the macro level? Is there practical data that shows the economics of the Industrial Internet?

For many of the vendors, the issue of the network is an afterthought. Satellite, cellular, WiFi as long as it connects. Meanwhile, the service providers focus on the connection as the most important part of the discussion that will ultimately drive hardware selection. The debate presents questions on decision making in this connected era. Who should drive the decisions about devices and connectivity? Should the customer’s choice of prime contractor be the deciding factor? What is the right mix?

Beyond traditional M2M to the Internet of Things: Aggregating Disparate Data Protocols on the Internet of Things
M2M-05
M2M Systems Development Engineering Manager
B&B Electronics
Senior Strategist
James Brehm & Associates
Skkynet
Director, Market Development
Open Mobile Alliance
Rather than eliminating our existing M2M data networks and connected devices, the Industrial Internet will add a new device category layer that will coexist with older technologies for quite some time, providing them with dramatic new capabilities and increasing their value. To do this, the Industrial Internet will need to accommodate traditional M2M technologies, some of which are decades old. It will have to aggregate, convert and transmit multiple data networking protocols, from Modbus to TCP/IP. It will need to move data across fiber, copper, cellular and wireless connections. While adding millions of smaller, smarter, more capable nodes to networks, the Industrial Internet will also have to keep our existing equipment connected and communicating. How do you plan for future and support the existing things?
4:00-4:45pm

The Economic Impact for Businesses of a Connected Society
M2M-06
Founder and Technology Evangelist
James Brehm & Associates
Executive Director of M2M Product Marketing for Advanced Mobility Solutions
AT&T Business Solutions
Chief Innovation and Technology Officer
Numerex
As the traditional M2M industry begins to evolve beyond simple machine connectivity, it is very clear that we are in the nascent stage of much greater M2M possibilities: business and life transformation. Today, most M2M applications are silos and are focused on optimizing a very specific aspect of an existing business. While a great first step, the real tipping point for M2M lies in areas such as crossindustry and crossvertical business interaction, which can yield innovative revenue opportunities and gamechanging ways of life. This session will focus on moving beyond connected machines to connected marketplaces, and how service enablement is fundamental to this shift. Hear how service enablement can move beyond simply connecting devices and systems, to transforming machine data into valuable information for applications and other valueadding services. Hear how device data and information are collected, stored, transformed and analyzed, services are created and executed and APIs are exposed to thirdparty developers enabling new innovative applications and services, which can be monetized and delivered to customers. Learn how businesses will get access to new revenue streams by providing their assets to other industries and jointly innovating new business propositions.

Organizations adopting machinetomachine M2M solutions are continually evolving, innovating, and maturing. Forward thinking companies have come to realize that M2M can provide increasing value to business processes by driving deeper insights through data analytics. Modern M2M solutions combine distributed intelligence and distributed data to deliver realtime process integration and enhanced information based service offerings. To maintain competitive advantage, enterprises not only need to establish bidirectional integration of their devices and business systems, but also extend this functionality out to their entire ecosystem. By leveraging the ecosystem and tapping into new insights from combined data analysis and collaboration, companies will achieve new levels of efficiency, deliver new and improved services and products for customers, and create new revenue streams. Rapid application development, ease of integration, flexible deployment models, and enhanced security will all be critical for organizations looking to achieve their strategic and operational objectives in the coming years and the choice of the underlying platform will be a critical aspect in delivering on the promise of M2M.

At the Edge: Devices at Work
M2M-15
Chairman and CEO
Camgian Microsystems
Director of Product Management & Business Development
Systech Corporation
Traditionally, the phone network had a strong distinction between the customer’s equipment and the network. These days, ownership, management and placement of devices rarely include distinctions such as “carrier grade.” As we focus on gathering information, the aggregation of data can come from anywhere. What represents the edge of information then if big data brings in other resources? Where does the information come from and how can it impact the work flow?

Can sensors take us beyond the five senses? Do all projects start off with upper management buy in, or do some things have to be demonstrated before their value can be understood? This panel looks at how innovation can be delivered using tools such as simple sensors and computing boards such as Arduinos and Raspberry Pi. Most importantly, we are looking to reveal how easy it is to get in the mix and get some handson experience.
