Unified critical communications for IoT
We’re excited to announce that our CTO, Imad Mouline, will be speaking at the upcoming Internet of Things Expo, June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York. This is one of the largest IoT events in the world, and Imad will share his presentation on “Critical Communications for IoT: Connecting Devices, Things and People.”
More information can be found @ThingsExpo, but a preview of what will be covered in this “Enterprise IoT” presentation is below. Expect these key themes to be adressed, but don’t hesitate to let us know if there is anything else that you may be interested in hearing!
Connecting Devices, People AND Things: Imagine if your local community’s water dam was connected to a critical communication system. Now imagine that every time that it needed to be released, the system would automatically trigger a notification to the public works department to enable them to take the appropriate action.
The “what if” question about “smart dams” is short-sighted. We are already there, and we are only getting started. Our system, for instance, interacts with devices, people and things equally, and will trigger critical communications based on such indicators as appropriate location and situation. Depending on the severity of a situation, and whether the incident was first reported by people, sensors or devices (“Internet of Things”), our system will always ensure that the right messages get sent to the right people, based on their location, skill sets or simply, their ability to respond. While mainstream attention is paid to machine-to-machine communications, new technologies like these are continually being developed to make communications more actionable during critical situations (call it “machine-to-machine-to human”).
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Imad will discuss how the true future of IoT lies in connecting devices, big and small, to critical communication systems to ensure the right teams are called in to help when needed. The session will highlight the importance of connecting public infrastructure, workplace controls, medical devices, IT platforms and other types of mission-critical technologies to unified communications to make the world a safer and more secure place.
