Second Day - February 12, 2016

Focus of the second day of the congress were the topics "Industrial Internet" and the "Internet of Things". The requirements of "IoT", especially in industrial environments, on network connectivity, but also on data processing and security are clearly distinguished from those of the mobile Internet. Specifically reliability, complexity and efficiency are of particular importance. This was presented in four articles.
  • Dr. Lutz Rauchhaupt, Institute for Automation and Communication, "Reliable wireless communication for the industry - what does that mean and how can it be assessed in concrete terms?"
  • Dr. Bernd Schröder, brown-iposs, "Low Power, long range - radio systems (not only) for smart metering"
  • Markus Wingen, Sierra Wireless, "Business transformation through IoT/M2M"
  • Dr. Martin Peters, com2m GmbH, "Digital transformation in the SME sector"
