Course Overview

IoT allows objects to be sensed and controlled remotely across existing network infrastructure, creating opportunities for more direct integration between the physical world and computer-based systems, and resulting in improved efficiency, accuracy and economic benefit. The world of communications is adapting to IoT, with new types of wireless networks (such as LPWA Networks), protocols and infrastructure being developed to match the specific challenges and demands of this rapidly growing technology.

This seminar will address these challenges and provide participants with the in-depth knowledge needed to understand and work with IoT wireless networks.

We will cover the wide range of developing new wireless networks and standards relating to all aspects of IoT, including 3GPP networks e. g. LTE-MTC, NB-IOT; alternatives such as LORA, SIGFOX and others; all activity and business issues related to IoT, and a look at how these networks will evolve into 5G.

Who should attend?
The course is designed for anyone who works with, or has a professional interest in IoT.

Basic technological understanding
Basic communication and network knowledge
