Agenda of LPWAN16, the 1st international conference on IoT and M2M LPWA technologies, is online

The agenda of LPWAN16, the 1st international conference on IoT and M2M wireless LPWA (Low Power Wide Area) technologies, is online. LPWAN16 is hosted by L’Embarqué, an all-digital media focused on the embedded software and systems markets, and Upperside Conferences, a leading high-level telecom conferences organizer. The conference will take place in Paris on May 18-10 and will get together hardware and software technological IP providers, analysts, standardization bodies, cloud platforms vendors, LPWA networks operators and applied research labs.

LPWA networks constitute an ideal solution for machine-to-machine (M2M) and the Internet of Things (IoT) applications that necessitate wide coverage and a sparing use of energy at a limited cost. Smart City (with its sensors embedded in an urban setting), water, gas & electricity metering, e-health, connected buildings, agriculture… these are amongst the many applications that can be potentially covered by LPWA networks and that have a very bright future ahead of them.

After a first tutorial day dedicated to LoRa and LTE-M initiatives, the conference will start with an introduction session led by technology agnostic analysts comparing LPWAN solutions (Sigfox, LoRa, Qowisio, etc.). Other sessions will cover standardization works (Weightless, 3GPP NB-IoT, WiFi HaLow), service providers strategies, building blocks and security issues. LPWAN16 presentations have been selected by a conference committee of nine seasoned experts : Régis Lauret (Eolane), Cyrille Le Floch (Qowisio), Philippe Cola (Bouygues Telecom), William Webb (Weightless SIG), Jérôme de Murcia (Orange Labs), Aapo Markkanen (Machina Research), Philippe Guillemette (Sierra Wireless), Nicolas Jordan (Actility) and Teppo Hemiä (Wirepas).
