Expert Panelists, Including RTI CEO Stan Schneider, Discuss What Makes an IoT Device "Smart"
SUNNYVALE, CALIF.—February 19, 2015—Real-Time Innovations (RTI), the real-time Industrial Internet of Things communications platform company, today announced it is hosting a complimentary webinar, "Panel Discussion—Exploring IoT: Silicon, Software, Security, and Sensors." This webinar features a diverse panel of experts who will discuss Internet of Things (IoT) applications and dissect what puts the "smart" in IoT devices.
The IoT is a broad-reaching concept traversing virtually every market segment. Some analysts consider the market opportunity of the IoT to be as high as $14.4 trillion. The IoT implies that devices with information become smart by adding connectivity and a means to provide or consume information to and/or from other external systems. The silicon and sensor components play a big role in the capabilities and cost of the IoT device. Software must incorporate connectivity to enable smartness. And once a device is smart, non-trivial security issues need to be addressed.
Panel members include representatives from Eurotech, Flexera, McAfee and Thingworx, as well as Stan Schneider, CEO of RTI and member of the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) Steering Committee. Stan is a recognized expert in the development and integration of distributed real-time systems. He founded RTI to develop productivity tools for the real-time marketplace. Under his guidance, RTI has grown into a multinational business with offices throughout North America and Europe.
