01 March 2017

IQRF Alliance and partners invite you at a two-day summit where you can expect more than 30 interactive presentations and 12 hands-on workshops from the IoT field. You will find here real examples from areas of smart cities, smart buildings and homes, industry, security and transportation.

Among the presenters you will find representatives from companies such as Microsoft, O2, AAEON, NETIO products, MICRORISC, Aledo, Protronix, IQ Home, CITIQ, DATmoLUX, RehiveTech and many others.

 

Date: June 7th to 8th, 2017

Location: Clarion Congress Hotel Prague

Registration: www.iqrf.org/summit2017/registration

 

Solutions presented at the Summit are based on the IQRF technology, one of the leading wireless mesh networking technologies on the market. IQRF operates on sub gigahertz ISM bands to collect small data from devices and/or to control them. Extremely low power consumption of this platform enables devices to work on batteries for many years. There are hundreds of thousands devices running on this mature technology since 2008.

Among the topics presented you can find here solutions of parking, lighting, temperature monitoring with energy savings, sensory monitoring of indoor air quality, industry safety and much more.

One of the key topics presented here is a system for remote monitoring and management of an IQRF network through a gateway with installed client software. Monitoring data are sent to the back-end in a cloud to be processed and visualized and remote devices to be controlled. This solution enables operators to solve most of the necessary operating interventions remotely, including software upgrades and changes in a device configuration in the IQRF network. Experts in work with sensoric data, among other things, will show how you can work with gathered data in case of failure of connection to the Internet.

The Summit will host the final of the international competition IQRF Wireless Challenge III and authors of the best projects will present their solution to the professional public.

Moreover, there will be a networking event enabling informal meetings of all participants, discussion on interesting topics and establishing new business partnerships.
