Connected Devices SIG

The Cambridge Wireless Connected Devices Special Interest Group focuses on applications, systems and underlying technologies of wireless communication where the end device is a machine or other device that’s not a handset. The group's scope encompasses the concepts of Machine to Machine (M2M) communication and the Internet of Things from the perspectives of key applications, systems design and technology. This includes wide-area networking (WAN), standard cellular communications, satellite systems and broadband, and where required local-area networking (LAN), Bluetooth, Near-Field Communications (NFC), Ultra Wide-Band (UWB), Wi-Fi, Zigbee, and other less well-known standards. Proprietary radio systems are also considered along with the data centre and back-office systems required to deliver the actual end-to-end service that customers and service providers require.  The group seeks to:

  • Showcase and promote the use of wireless communications in a broad range of markets including consumer electronics, enterprises, healthcare, industry, smart energy and security
  • Address the modern trend toward ubiquitous connectivity, examining its benefits and costs
  • Share knowledge between developers and users of the technology both on the available standards and on relevant proprietary technologies
  • Share expertise on development issues such as product certifications, qualification and export licence controls
  • Explore new business opportunities for members in these technologies and their applications

The SIG aims to hold 2-3 meetings each year in Cambridge, as well as occasional events elsewhere in the UK and Europe.
