Many IoT projects fail due to unpredictable costs tipping the balance sheets. A major factor of this and one of the biggest contributors to the cost per device simply boils down to the amount of data being transmitted. This cost can be mitigated, at least in part, by choosing an efficient way of communicating between devices and applications.
Whatever the application, there are many different ways to gather data from and push instructions to devices, and each method brings with it different challenges.
Nick Hayes (Thingstream), will follow on with ‘Harnessing the power of the MQTT broker’ covering what can be achieved with MQTT topics, the Thingstream Data Flow Manager and more.
Bring your LPWA devices to life
Thingstream recently held its first developer event called in>flow. Hosted at the Tobacco Theatre, Amsterdam in October, in>flow was designed to present and promote current & future trends in IoT.
The aim was to create a community of experienced, forward-thinking IoT practitioners. It became a powerful forum where advances in current and future IoT technology were put forward and considered, alliances made, working case studies discussed and the formation of a working community in IoT.
This event was presented to device manufacturers, IoT Platform developers, system integrators and IoT consultants or anyone involved in digital transformation using the concept of industry 4.0 as a model to drive:
- IoT connectivity
- IoT strategy
- IoT applications
- Harnessing new radio technology
- Real time data
- Device to application management
- Device design and manufacture
