Today, LPWAN is a plethora of acronyms and obscure technical debate. This LPWAN CWIC-Starter event strips that away, explaining the different options and concentrating on how they will affect your business, both in terms of efficiency and potential disruption. It also looks at the effect of the potential tsunami of data they can produce and demonstrates how that can be utilised to shape new business models. Speaker include: Antony Rix, 8power; Nick Hunn, WiFore Consulting; Paul Green, Iotic Labs; Colin Newman, Antenova and John Bechtel, Badger Pass


Lower Power Wide Area Networks (LPWANs) have the capability of transforming the way that manufacturers integrate the Internet of Things into their products and business models.  Along with a new cellular standard – NB-IOT, they finally bring the prospect of low cost connectivity which works out of the box, with minimal data charges.  That makes it possible to find out where your products are, what they’re doing and how well they’re operating.  As it becomes possible to do that for a few dollars, the impact on everything from product registration to maintenance and customer engagement changes dramatically.

Led by the Connected Devices SIG champions, who have decades of shared experience, augmented by other industry experts, this is aimed at anyone who wants to see what these future technologies could do for their business.

Speakers include:

Why I choose and support LPWAN: company presentations

This CWIC Starter is championed by Nick Hunn from the CWIC Committee and the Connected Devices SIG.
