Internet of Things Workshop

Telecom professional learning, grasping, and applying internet of things technology

The course provides participants with a solid technical understanding of the different IoT technologies involved in modern IoT scenarios and its use cases, covering open and standardized technologies from LTE-M/Cat-0/1/3, NB-IoT and 5G to proprietary technologies like Sigfox, LoRaWAN, Weightless and more. The connectivity technologies are covered comprehensively and in relation to standardization, their pros and cons, regulatory aspects, security, ecosystem and use cases.

The impact of introducing IoT in a cellular network along with the need for new hardware, interfaces and channels will also be covered in great depth.

As security remains to be one of top concerns for IoT due to critical data being transmitted via government, transport and critical infrastructure, this training will deconstruct the different security challenges at all levels of the IoT ecosystem, explaining the risks and standard solutions available.

Several architectures and best practices will be discussed and linked with the use cases for industry verticals, covering benefits business models, challenges of each industry and use case.
