  • Process sampling practices
    Process sampling practices Janne Loimi, M.Sc., Application Specialist Slurry Sampling, Outotec Recorded: Apr 27 2017 37 mins
    This webinar will focus on the importance of a sampling system for an analyzer in a concentrator plant. Sample pipe routing and installation are more demanding than installation of process piping, e.g. water or sewer piping. The importance of designing and installing a sampling system is often overlooked causing a lack of representative samples. This results in poor process control and can decrease plant profitability. The webinar discusses how to overcome the above issues.

  • Innovations Contributing to the Overall Growth of Smart Agriculture Technology
    Innovations Contributing to the Overall Growth of Smart Agriculture Technology Chris Shanahan, Global Director, Agriculture & Nutrition, Frost & Sullivan Recorded: Mar 8 2017 61 mins
    The global agriculture sector has encountered challenges with the lack of adequate food for the growing malnourished population, the continued radical decrease in the areas of global arable land, and a dearth of technology that supports increased productivity and reduced labor dependency. These challenges are being addressed by integrating farming with technologies that provide decision support systems, effective farm monitoring, crop management, improved farm household income and farm output, and an overall improvement in the efficiency of the agricultural system. Critical factors for successfully exploiting opportunities in the smart agriculture sector include providing a means to enable continuous monitoring, enabling real-time data collection, increasing automation of crop cultivation and livestock production systems, and effectively demonstrating increased farmer return on investment.

  • LPWAN - How LPWAN networks int for Smart Communities and the Industrial Internet
    LPWAN - How LPWAN networks int for Smart Communities and the Industrial Internet Yann Gabay - CONNIT; Brian Ray - Link Labs, Tiana McNeil - Ingenu, Jeff Siegel - nwave, Limor Schafman - TIA Recorded: Feb 15 2017 62 mins
    LPWAN (low power wide area network) technologies service a specific and necessary role in the growth of Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity. Not all applications need bandwidth and speed. Sometimes long distance, low energy usage, and long latency is the perfect confluence of service that an IoT application needs. Some examples are city lighting, energy grid and meter management, parking space monitoring, precision irrigation, crop yield management, and many more.

    This webcast will present different LPWAN technologies and discuss a number of questions regarding technology and value assessment, deployment, usage of such networks, and return on investment evaluations.

    - An explanation of LPWAN technology and how it works
    - When to use (and not use) LPWAN technology
    - What issues such networks solve
    - The difference between U.S. and European bands and when this will matter to a company deploying an LPWAN network
    - Key information that cities and companies need to both ask and be ready to answer when planning to deploy an LPWAN network, in order to assess the right fit and to maximize efficiencies such connectivity can bring
    - How LPWAN networks integrate with other network infrastructure in smart community deployments, for example
    - Sample use cases
    - Business models that use LPWAN networks for energy management, asset management, and others
    - How to make money as both a user and deployer of LPWAN networks
    - What returns on investment can be expected and suggested metrics for measurement

    Speakers:
    Yann Gabay, Co-founder and Board Member, CONNIT
    Tiana McNeil, Sr. Business Development Manager, Iot Smart Cities, Ingenu

  • 5G, IoT and Autonomy
    5G, IoT and Autonomy George Karayannis, Chris Clayton and Limor Schfman Recorded: Dec 14 2016 62 mins
    The Internet of Things will redefine services offered in such industry sectors as eHealth, smart communities, retail, transportation and energy.  To provide the levels of service required, infrastructure networks will be suffused with levels of complexity beyond any deployed and operated to date. 

    The concept known as “5G” is still being defined.  It will include legacy systems such as 3G, expand the development of 4G LTE, incorporate newly developed technologies such as holographic beamforming and virtualization, and include other types of networks such as WPLANs, satellite, and fiber.  Interoperability of the networks, seamless integration of applications and the transfer of data across the networks and systems will require autonomous and artificial intelligence to ensure seamless, secure and ensured delivery. 
     
    Chris Clayton, Head of Solution Design & Delivery for Beyond Limits, and George Karayannis, Vice President of CityNOW for Panasonic, will take us on a deep dive on how the integration of networks and autonomous artificial intelligence capabilities will enable trusted IoT connectivity demands within Smart Cities.
