The Industrial Internet Consortium Hosts Smart Cities Forum in Berlin

By Ken Briodagh May 31, 2017

As European cities keep implementing Smart City programs, global enterprises are keeping their eyes on the space for opportunities. To help, the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC), the world’s leading organization transforming business and society by accelerating the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), will host a Smart Cities Forum on June 14 in Berlin, Germany in the Radisson Blu Berlin hotel from 1:00 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. This public event will showcase industrial Internet technologies that will enable smart cities of the future.

While the integration of IIoT applications in smart cities will bring numerous benefits, there are numerous security, privacy and interoperability challenges that must be addressed as IIoT technologies progress. The Smart Cities Forum will address these issues and others, including:

  • Speakers from Cisco and GE Digital who will share how they are developing and applying IIoT technologies to enable smart cities.
  • A panel of testbed experts from Asavie, Dell EMC, InterDigital, Real-Time Innovations, Inc. and Wipro who will discuss the challenges of an energy Microgrid, security monitoring, asset utilization, energy efficiency and first responder route optimization.
  • A guest speaker from Belden who will provide insights into Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) and how the IIC’s TSN Testbed is advancing TSN in manufacturing and the vision for other applications such as transportation and more.

The IIC hosts thought leadership forums around the globe. See www.iiconsortium.org/events for upcoming and past forums, speakers and presentations. Coming this summer, the IIC will be taking part in the IoT Evolution Expo, the leading IoT-focused industry event focusing on enterprise execution, to be held July 17 to 20 at Caesars palace in Las Vegas.

WHEN: June 14, 2017, 1:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

WHERE: Radisson Blu Berlin, Berlin, Germany

COST: Complimentary; Pre-registration recommended; Register
