Embedded Meets Mobility: M2M Considerations and Concepts
For decades, multitudes of embedded machines have been specialized islands of vertical fixed-function intelligence with unique attributes. As the need and opportunity evolves to connect and coordinate between these embedded machines and the people that need to interact with them, many factors must be considered. Machine to Machine (M2M) offers new efficiencies in operational management of networked devices, the addition of new services and new business models for stakeholders within the value chain.
QNX and Freescale will present an overview of:
- revenue opportunities for M2M
- the essentials of developing secure, and reliable M2M networks
- developing scalable M2M networks,
- managed device endpoints
- management concepts for devices in cloud computing
Who should attend:
- Software engineers and designers
- Hardware engineers and designers
- System architects and engineers
