How is IOT being deployed on the factory floor and how does it improve the management of production? Have we gotten to the point where Programmable Line Cards are taking advantage of connectivity or are gateways making human intervention easier. Where is the promise of IoT for manufacturing being delivered and how?

Identity theft happens despite attempts to protect personal information, and it can be a devastating event for the individual. Cyber-attacks occur similarly in an enterprise or its Industrial Control System (ICS) architecture, also delivering devastating impacts for the success of the business. This session will address the current state of these threats, outline what technical solutions, either available now or under development, can be identified to close the gaps regarding cyber security.

Ken Hosac
Vice President, IoT Strategy
Cradlepoint
Are you deploying IoT as a science project or for a competitive cost or revenue advantage? Join George Mulhern, CEO of Cradlepoint, as he shares strategic networking considerations to help organizations spend more time “consuming” technology and less time building it – greatly improving their time-to-value. Software-Defined technologies, elastic gateways, and 5G are among those strategic choices that could be the difference between a competitive advantage and a resource drain.

Trustworthiness is a paradigm put forth by NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) and IIC (Industrial Internet Consortium) to address the relationship of key system characteristics of IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) component and systems. The IIC defines trustworthiness as the degree of confidence one has that a system performs as expected, characterized by the five key elements of safety, security, reliability, resilience and privacy in the face of environmental disruptions, human errors, system faults and attacks. Trustworthiness is a trait used for years to define the characteristics of both IT (Information Technology) and OT (Operation Technology) systems. In IT, trustworthiness mainly addresses security, reliability, and privacy. On the other hand, trustworthiness in OT mainly addresses safety, reliability and resilience. Addressing the missing key system characteristics in both IT and OT systems and focusing on the relationship of the five key characteristics of the IIoT, trustworthiness paradigm will solve many IT/OT convergence problems, especially conflicts between safety, security, and privacy.

The Industrial IoT represents a unique combination of opportunity and challenge for digital transformation. In these asset-intensive industries, preventing unscheduled downtime may be the Industrial IoT's killer app, yet incremental gains in throughput and efficiency are important priorities as well. Industrial environments also carry a legacy of often decades-old equipment that must be brought forward against a backdrop of enabling IT technologies that churn every 18 months. And while cybersecurity remains a critical concern, manufacturers and resource companies are finding that the potential benefits of technologies such as virtualization and remote connectivity outweigh the risks of not adopting them. In this presentation, Alex Glaser of Harbor Research reviews why the Industrial IoT--including the discrete manufacturing, oil & gas, refining, power gen, bulk chemicals and metals & mining sectors--are pursuing digital transformation, specific use cases of how they are implementing transformative new technologies, and the benefits they have achieved.

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) landscape today is a confusing mix of proprietary connectivity technologies and standards. Some are general purpose, some are mostly appropriate for enterprise applications and others are optimized for a narrow set of domain-specific use cases in vertically integrated systems. This confusion hinders the ability to share data that IIoT systems need. Architects need clarity on how to effectively share data between IIoT components and systems. To address this confusion, the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) just released the Industrial Internet Connectivity Framework (IICF). It is the result of years of work by many organizations and is the only extensive connectivity analysis by multiple experts from many companies at a major consortium. More importantly, it not only provides high-level design guidance, but also detailed, useful, tangible and practical guidance for those building IIoT solutions today.

MulteFire is delivering a new way to wireless. MulteFire is an LTE-based small cell technology that operates standalone in unlicensed and shared spectrum – delivering LTE-like-performance with Wi-Fi-like deployment simplicity. By removing the requirement to own licensed spectrum to deploy LTE technology, MulteFire broadens the LTE ecosystem to industrial IoT, enterprises, venues and more. Attendees at this session will learn how MulteFire allows anyone to deploy and operate their own private or neutral host MulteFire network. They will gain an understanding of how an industrial IoT environment will benefit by deploying a MulteFire network.

As the Internet of Things moves from hype to adoption and productivity, it’s time to figure out what is IoT actually good for. Connecting equipment and devices over the Internet enables us to collect a lot of useful data. But what for? Gaining visibility and actionable insight sounds interesting but the real benefit comes from being able to act upon that insight. This presentation will discuss how IoT applications deliver tangible value to the equipment manufacturers and operators alike.
