The ability to make Internet of Things (IoT) networks comprehensive and technology-agnostic is topping the agenda at the 2017 LPWA World, reports ITRealms.
The event slated for May, ITRealms reports is aimed at helping public and private operators make sense of the many different technology and deployment choices for IoT networks.
With support from partners Wi-SUN Alliance, Weightless SIG, LoRA Alliance and GSMA, LPWA World will help operators capitalise on the opportunity IoT signifies through discussions on cellular and non-cellular solutions.
ITRealms also reports that the event taking place at the InterContinental O2 in London, UK from 23 –24 May 2017, would see LPWA World helping operators and end users navigate different technologies, such as LPWAN, LTE-M, NB-IoT and Sigfox, and develop a strategy to achieve tangible ROI on IoT network investments.
Founder and CTO of Aeris Communications, Syed Zaeem Hosain, who will discuss the technological and business considerations of a future LPWA player said the event would pave the way for understanding the range of use cases and applications will also be high on the agenda, with presentations on applications covering a wide range of industry verticals such as transport, smart cities, utilities, healthcare and automotive.
Over the last twelve months, Hosain said, there have been a growing number of proprietary networks, competing standards, and initiatives for cellular and non-cellular networks.
ITRealms gathered that later, representatives from Telekom Austria and Etisalat Digital will join a panel to discuss the challenges and opportunities surrounding global LPWA live trials. On day two, there will be several regional-specific spotlights, including a focus on South America, Australia, Asia and the USA.
