10-13 September: CEDIA EXPO; Geoff Mulligan to Speak on IP and the IoT

CEDIA EXPO is the leading tradeshow in the residential electronic systems industry.  IPSO Chairman and former Presidential Innovation Fellow, Geoff Mulligan, will be speaking on standards and the Internet of Things.


Saturday, 13 September 10:00 a.m.
— IP and the Internet of Things, Not really a no-brainer —

While you would think that using the Internet Protocol (IP) for the Internet of Things was a forgone conclusion, this is far from the case.

During this class we will cover the many benefits from using IP (while dispelling many myths) and also the current state of the many protocols being used and developed, including 6lowpan, BTLE, 802.15.4, RPL, and COAP. In addition we’ll take a look at the work being done by various Alliances including the IPSO Alliance, Thread, OIC, IIC, Zigbee and Allseen with a goal to understanding how they might fit together.

Learning Objectives: How does an IP stack fit into the IoT; What are the current set of appropriate protocols and their state of readiness; Why are gateways a necessary evil – for now; Does security go out the window if you use IP; Why proprietary protocols create an ever downward customer spiral; What developments are on the horizon.
