12:30pm - 7:00pm, September 25, 2010, Saturday at Benson Center (Bldg 301), Santa Clara University
The applications and communications aspects of smart grids, Machine to Machine (M2M) platforms and smart/ embedded devices are the focus areas of this workshop. "The Internet of things" is often used to denote the wide variety and huge number of networked devices that are now emerging. We will explore that as well as other networks (e.g. WiFi/IEEE 802.11n and home networks) which provide connectivity for emerging devices and the smart grid.
We will also examine how M2M networks will be managed and provisioned for so many embedded devices (Ericsson has predicted 20B connected devices by 2020 and other companies predict even more).
There will be four presentations in each of two workshop Tracks as noted below:
Smart Grid Communications: Enabling a Smarter Grid [Slide]
Claudio Lima, Vice Chair of IEEE P2030 Smart Grid Architecture Standards WG
Power Line Communications and the Smart Grid [Slide]
Stefano Galli, Lead Scientist Panasonic R&D
Wireless Communications for Smart Grid [Slide]
Kuor-Hsin Chang, Principal System Engineer – Standards, Elster Solutions
Jeffrey Smith, CTO, Numerex Corp & Chairman, TIA TR-50 Smart Device Communications Standard Committee
Operations and Management of Mobility Applications and M2M Networks [Slide]
Jason Porter, AVP, AT&T
Sprint’s Machine-to-Machine and Service Enablement Platform
Michael Finegan, West Area M2M Manager of Solutions Engineering, Sprint Emerging Solutions Group
There will be a panel session at the end of each Track, after the presentations.
