IIoT1: An Overview of TLS 1.3
One of the predominant protocols for connected sensors and industrial device security is SSL/TLS. Over the last several years, the new up-and-coming TLS 1.3 specification has been in development. Nearing standardization, TLS 1.3 makes substantial changes to the TLS protocol to allow for better security and performance. This session gives attendees an overview of changes in TLS 1.3, how the protocol works, and what advantages it offers for resource-constrained devices.

IIoT2: IPC-CFX Standards Update for Industry 4.0
This session describes how new standards are simplifying M2M communications & solutions in the Factory. IPC-CFX is an electronics manufacturing industry developed standard forming the foundation/backbone of Industry 4.0 Applications. IPC-CFX simplifies and standardizes machine to machine communication while also facilitating machine to business/business to machine solutions. IPC-CFX can simply be described as a standard providing a purpose, working components, benefits, with several applications and sustainability.  

IPC is a global industry association developing standards in support of electronics manufacturing is nearing completion of a two-year effort evaluating the needs of the industry for a new standard for electronics manufacturing factory communication. The IPC format, named Connected Factory eXchange or CFX, is expected to be released in version 1.0 in October. This session gives background on the development of this important new protocol, cooperative efforts with other open industry standards industry and plans for the future.

IIoT3: IoT Enabling Flexible Circuits with Integrated Sensors, Secure Wireless Communication/Power, Advanced Chip Packaging, and Shape Memory Actuation
Enabling IoT development by utilizing roll to roll semi-additive process technology for cost effective solutions. IoT requires sensors, actuators, wireless communication and power in a small, customized form factor. Roll to roll semi-additive manufacturing can provide some of the best processes of both PCB/flex and silicon fabrication. Roll to roll semi-additive technology enables one process technology to make the functional component integrated into the package. Such as strain gauges, RTDs and shape memory actuators.

IIoT5: Riding the Wave of IIoT-Connected Sensor Data
We know it's coming; and it's terrifying. It's called Big Data, and it will change the function of industrial operations and processes for the foreseeable future. Data-informed decision-making and IoT-based predictive maintenance is a strategic advantage, but have we already crossed the threshold of too much data? Will we find ourselves swimming upstream, wading through the flood of incoming data trends, alerts, alarms, reports, and diagnostics? How do we not capsize?

Learn how to stay ahead of Big Data with a strategic plan on what we refer to as "decision data." Discover how single critical data points can ripple out multiple-layers across the organization for KPIs. Experience a unique modality that welcomes IoT sensor buildouts, but keeps you in control of the data analytics.

IIoT6: Mesh Networking: The Next Frontier for Sensors and the IoT
As connected sensor solutions and sensor networks grow and become more impactful across IoT vertical markets, more developers are asking themselves: What’s the right wireless connectivity model for my IoT solution? This session gives developers an in-depth look at the three major connectivity models that are driving sensor deployments in the IoT, including in emerging markets such as smart buildings, homes, industries, and cities. It provides an “under the hood” look at the newest connectivity model, Bluetooth mesh networking, which allows for networks of tens, hundreds or thousands of wireless devices to reliably and securely communicate. Attendees will walk away knowing more about the many ways they can use Bluetooth technology to generate new product offerings and revenue streams for their organizations.
