The SCTE/ISBE will host five Internet of Things (IoT) workshops and a special exhibit area on IoT at Cable-Tec Expo 2018 in Atlanta.

The SCTE/ISBE, which announced in 2016 the formation of the IoT Working Group within the Society's Standards Program, will provide insights into the group's progress as well as implications for the industry in five workshops: The State of the IoT in SCTE/ISBE Standards; Everything You Always Wanted to Know About the Low Power Wide-Area (LPWA) Networks That Connect IoT Devices; Applying IoT Techniques to Eldercare; The State of Mission-Critical IoT Packets; and Around the World of IoT.

In addition, seven companies will exhibit at a newly created IoT World exhibit on the Cable-Tec Expo show floor. The exhibiting companies include:

  • AirSys, which will be exhibiting a suite of IoT hardware and software solutions that are designed to reduce OPEX and CAPEX while enhancing deployment run rate
  •, which will be showing a security and remote monitoring platform that enables application-based control for a variety of IoT devices
  • ARRIS, which will host an interactive IoT trivia game contest that is intended to showcase secure solutions ARRIS is bringing to market
  • Axiros, which will be displaying end-to-end solutions for IoT provisioning and management that are intended to help operators leverage cable networks to enable revenue-generating IoT verticals
  • F-Secure, which offers connected home security solutions that utilize cloud, router-based security and endpoint protection to allow operators to protect consumers' Internet-connected devices
  • OpenVault, which will show how operators can increase visibility into consumer broadband usage on WiFi connected devices and arm themselves for the complexity of IoT environments
  • SerComm, which will show how to prepare and deploy a new generation of wireless connectivity intended to deliver commercial and industrial IoT services over CBRS

Adjacent to IoT World, ARRIS' Smart Cities exhibit will feature ARRIS and partners Axis, LG-MRI, Signify, and Tektelic showcasing smart city opportunities for service providers with CBRS and WiFi APs from Ruckus Networks, an ARRIS company, as well as an Internet kiosk, smart lighting, cameras, LoRA, and sensor solutions. The exhibits will focus on smart city technologies, including an Internet kiosk, IoT sensing solutions, smart street furniture, and wireless cameras systems that use WiFi, telemetry, and sensor technology to relay and receive data from centralized monitoring hubs. The exhibit will show how smart cities can save OPEX, improve dispatch and directional efficiency, improve safety, and raise the quality of life for city dwellers and visitors.
