IoT Evolution Speakers: Hiep Pham Speaks Out

By Ken Briodagh July 07, 2017

The IoT Evolution Expo is the only Internet of Things industry event focused on Enterprise-level strategic planning and engineering-lead solutions to IoT and IIoT challenges. We have invited a world-class speaking faculty to join us and help provide our conference delegates with the critical business intelligence they need to formulate strategy for the next year.

We reached out to our speakers and asked them for a preview for their sessions to give you a little taste of what to expect at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas July 17 to 20 for the IoT Evolution Expo. To register now, click here.

Hiep Pham is currently VP, Research and Development, Virtium, a storage and memory solution company serving the Industrial IoT Market. With a strong passion for Artificial Intelligent and the Internet of Things (IoT), he joined Virtium to spearhead the Industrial IoT- Intelligent Storage product road map and its development. Prior to his role at Virtium, Hiep was the president of R&D for Uniden San Diego and founder of a number of start-up technology companies. He co-founded and successfully built WIDCOMM, which was later acquired by Broadcom, into a world leader in Bluetooth software platform solutions. Hiep owns many technology patents, and was awarded San Diego’s E&Y’s Entrepreneur of the Year in 2002.

In his session on IoT Gateway Solutions with Chris Celiberti of InField Group and Robert Lutz of Systech Corporation, Pham will discuss IoT gateways and their role as both aggregation points and platforms. IoT platforms represent interfaces and middleware that control sensors and relay information, but before the platform does its work, gateways must act as aggregation points.

IoT Evolution World: What will be some key points you plan to hit in your session?

Hiep Pham: There are four major problems for an IoT end to end solution: Real-time response for monitoring and control of Industrial equipment; Limited bandwidth to send to the Cloud; Some Data analysis/ingestion & digestion must be done at the edge; and, Most of the data needs to be stored at the edge.

IoTEW: What new insights can attendees expect to take home from your sessions?

HP: Virtium delivers “intelligent storage” product that can address those 4 major problems, Intelligent storage focuses in storage data management and is an important component of the IoT ecosystem.

IoTEW: Can you identify a few important trends influencing your sector of the IoT which will shape the path of the industry? Why these?

HP: Processing & storage is moving toward the edge (to address those 4 problems in the first question).

Industrial automation will require a mixed solution to handle both legacy & new data (to minimize to down time and risks).

IOTEW: What are the biggest challenges facing the IoT? What are some important tools needed to overcome them?

HP: Every IoT solutions required some customization; this will slow down the deployment or the growth rate.

Standardizing some of the IoT solutions will help.

Flexible and agile product offers will help.

Advanced qualification tools that can reduce integration test time will help.

IOTEW: Which vertical markets have the most to gain from IoT implementation?

HP: We are focusing in the industrial automation and see good movements in the Oil, Gas and energy solutions.

IOTEW: What sessions are you most looking forward to attending at the Expo?

HP: Industrial automation solutions, Oil, Gas and energy related sessions, Tools and technology that can help quick development and deployment, Successful use cases and deployments of IoT solutions.
