Aapo Markkanen,
Principal Research Analyst, Gartner

Aapo Markkanen is a Principal Research Analyst at Gartner’s IoT Group, where he studies various market and technology issues that will pave the way for, and shape up, tomorrow’s connected enterprise. He has a particular research interest in low-power communication technologies (including e.g. LPWA networks and competing mesh-based alternatives), as well as fog/edge computing and the associated IoT gateways.   Aapo joined Gartner through the company’s acquisition of Machina Research and its IoT experts in the end of 2016. Prior to Machina Research, Aapo worked as a Principal Analyst at ABI Research, where he led a range of research activities related to M2M, Internet of Things, and big data. In this position, he explored areas such as data analytics, product lifecycle, cloud platforms, and IoT developers. He was also responsible for ABI Research’s flagship forecast on the global installed base of connected devices.   Aapo has spoken and moderated at several conferences, as well as been widely quoted by business and technology media. His views and research findings have appeared, for example, in such leading outlets as AP, CNBC, CNET, Dow Jones, EE Times, Financial Times, MIT Technology Review, Reuters, TechCrunch, VentureBeat, Wall Street Journal, Wired, and ZDNet.   Aapo holds BSc and MSc degrees in management studies from the University of Tampere, Finland. He has also spent an academic year at the University of Bologna, Italy, where he attended courses in economics and politics.

Cloud platforms for lpwan networks SESSION

Next-generation IoT Platform: Solving the «Silos» Approach
How to streamline a complete value chain to monetize the data all the way from sensors to applications. This requires the maximum flexibility, scalability, standard support, cost efficiency, and versatility that a next-generation IoT platform can offer from the Cloud, by managing devices and collecting data, validating it—possibly enriching it with analytics—mixing with other sources, exposing data to the applications, regardless of which connectivity network or protocol is used from the application standpoint.

Pierre-Yves Descombes,

IoT Product Manager,

HPE Communications and Media Solutions
MEC (Mobile Edge Computing) Approach for Internet of Things
MEC offers IT service and cloud-computing capabilities at the edge of the network MEC is widely recognized as a key enabler for a myriad of use cases for the Internet of Things, helping satisfy the demanding requirements for ultra-low latency, high bandwidth and reliability. It also offers additional privacy and security and ensures significant cost savings.

The Internet role SESSION
LPWANs and the Internet: Providing a Common Convergence
The current crop of LPWAN technologies are very diverse and highly optimized due to some of the cost, power and scalability constraints involved. As one of the side effects of the extreme need for optimization, there is a risk that each of these technologies will evolve into vertically integrated silos. Focusing on how to provide a common convergence layer based on IPv6 and CoAP and the Internet suite of protocols in order to enable common identity, security and management models.

Suresh Krishnan,

Distinguished Engineer, Ericsson,
Internet Area Director at the IETF
Coffee Break
The LPWAN IETF Working Group
The IETF LPWAN working group targets to port the IP protocols over LPWAN technologies (the group focuses on 3GPP NB IoT, IEEE Wi-Sun, LoRaWAN and Sigfox).
Presenting the LPWAN working group roadmap and the interaction with other working groups and SDOs.

Alexander Pelov,
IETF LPWAN Work Group Co-chair
Static Context Header Compression
The IETF LPWAN working group has decided to develop a new mechanism called Static Context Header Compression (SCHC). It combines the advantages of RoHC context which offers a great level of flexibility in the processing of fields, and 6LoWPAN behavior to elide fields that are known from the other side. Static context means that values in the context field do not change during the transmission, avoiding complex resynchronization mechanisms, incompatible with LPWAN characteristics.

Laurent Toutain,

Telecom Bretagne
Comparing the techniques that are envisioned by the IETF LPWAN WG to transport Internet Protocols over LowPowerWideArea (LPWA) Networks, with those used by 6LoWPAN for LowpowerWirelessPersonalArea (LWPA) Networks, and discussing further potential work at the IETF.

Pascal Thubert,

Why DNS should be the Naming Service for IoT?
In the IoT, there are different naming conventions ranging from EUI-48, EUI-64 for MAC addresses to ‘Digital Object Identifiers’ for electronic content to ‘Electronic Product Code’ for RFID. These naming conventions are used to identify uniquely a "things" in IoT. A "naming service" is required to resolve the "thing" identifier to its correlated information in the Internet. This talk will focus on leveraging DNS as a naming service for the IoT.

Sandoche Balakrichenan,
Seated Lunch

Digital Security Technologies for the IoT
The recent massive cyber-attacks on servers were triggered by connected devices that have no or weak security. Describing how the digital security technologies can protect the connected devices, and how the industry can overcome the challenges due to market fragmentation.

Jean-Pierre Delesse,

Trusted Objects
A Secure Cloud Infrastructure for IoT Robots and Drones
Proposing a secure infrastructure to support IoT robots (fixed robots as well as flying drones) over the mobile network or cloud infrastructure. The infrastructure would have machine learning based techniques to identify malicious IoT robot and mitigate threat to the network by isolating malicious IoT robot.
