IoT Evolution Speakers: Robert Lutz Speaks Out

By Ken Briodagh July 12, 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.

Robert Lutz is VP Marketing and Business Development at Systech Corporation, which provides modular IoT/M2M gateways and services for a variety of markets. Previously, Lutz was a product director at LSI, responsible for DPI network security devices. He has also held engineering, product management, and marketing positions at Iomega, Hifn, and National Semiconductor.

In his session on IoT Gateway Solutions with Chris Celiberti of InField Group and Hiep Pham of Virtium Solid State Storage and Memory, he will adress how IoT platforms represent interfaces and middleware that control sensors and relay information. Before the platform does its work, however, gateways must act as aggregation points.

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

Robert Lutz: Here are some key points/take-aways for the “IoT Gateway Solutions” session.

There is a trend toward local edge processing for most IoT applications. Don’t rely solely on the cloud.

“Things” are the “T” of IoT. How do you find and choose the appropriate sensors to use?

Trade-offs between build your own gateway vs. off-the-shelf gateway.

What is the current state of cellular network technology, and how do you choose a connectivity solution?

Can you implement a “no gateway” IoT solution?

What tools are available for developing or porting your own software to the edge?

What three questions you should ask prior to launching an IoT development project?

What is different between deploying IoT at one location vs. 100,000 locations?

IoT security – How to solve it.
