Technology innovation and the Internet of Things are forcing companies to keep pace with perpetual change, while consumers are forcing brands to bring new products to market that reduce costs and increase revenues. One consequence of these trends is a move to unconventional solutions to drive interactive, aware and intelligent packaging to help drive brand awareness, loyalty and consumer value.
Did you know that 28% of packaging stakeholders said they are currently using intelligent packaging technologies? Add to that an additional 19% who plan to adopt these capabilities over the next 3 years and it's clear that smarter packaging is on the rise!
Are you exploring the benefits of intelligent packaging to drive a unique experience for your brands?
Join Jabil Packaging Solutions' own Amanda Williams, Business Development Manager, Phil Hague of Radius Innovation & Development and Dianne Hagglund, Founder & Principal of Dimensional Research as they discuss key trends, challenges and opportunities to bring brilliance to your packaging platforms through affordable digital applications that differentiate.

The notion of a Smart Factory today is based on utilizing modern Industrial IoT concepts. While it is not practical for existing brown fields to immediately modernize and adopt all these technologies and best practices, it is however possible for factories to cherry pick individual technologies and practices as a path to gradually modernize over time. These include technologies and best practices that allow for seamless machine interoperability, easy data sharing between machines, MES, ERP, and SCADA systems.
This webinar will provide an overview of some of these technologies and will also discuss the new industry standards that make such a migration possible. We’ll also share a proof of concept, the IIC Smart Factory Web Testbed, which is a network of smart factories with flexible adaptation of production capabilities and sharing of resources and assets to improve order fulfillment.
Featured IIC Testbed: Smart Factory Web
The Smart Factory Web forms a network of smart factories with flexible adaptation of production capabilities and sharing of resources and assets to improve order fulfillment. Key challenges being addressed: How can we connect factories to the Smart Factory Web and exchange data reliably? How can we provide the information securely at the right granularity to authorized partners? How can production capabilities be adapted quickly and efficiently in response to orders?

Machine Learning and Time Sensitive Networking in the Smart Factory: How the IIoT makes critical data available when & where it is needed.
In today’s digital age, the rapid emergence of IoT is changing operations throughout the manufacturing domain. Machines and systems have become more intelligent and more connected, and the proliferation of sensors generates a non-stop flow of data. This wealth of actionable information provides the key to unlocking higher efficiency and increased reliability of machines and systems. The opportunity lies in harvesting the data.
Join IIoT experts from the Industrial Internet Consortium to discover exciting developments in the field of machine learning -- products and systems taking action on their own -- and how this self-optimization will play a pivotal role in enhancing the intelligence of the factory. We will also showcase the Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) testbed and the technology used to support real-time control and synchronization of high performance machines over a single, standard Ethernet network.
What you will learn:
-How IIoT connectivity has enabled data from the operational domain (OT), to become more accessible to the information technology (IT) domain.
-How Machine Learning will lead to real-time, self-optimization of Industrial Systems and help reduce downtime via predictive and preventative maintenance.
-How TSN capabilities are extending standard Ethernet (IEEE 802.1 & 802.3) to enable more devices, applications, and deterministic potential to manufacturing networks.

Real estate developers, owners and tenants are rethinking the office building experience. Not only are buildings becoming increasingly efficient in in-door energy management and operations, they are also beginning to interact with the people who work within the walls, and with the out of doors environment.
This type of sentient building design is making use of increased connectivity to and in buildings, as well as the use of sensors and IoT applications. This webcast will discuss communications and connectivity infrastructure that is being deployed in and to current real estate developments; what buiding owners, operators and tenants expect; the impact smart community development is having on smart buildings; and sample smart building IoT applications.

From automated vehicles to ride hailing apps, transportation as we know it is changing - and fast. But new technologies alone won't help communities build the efficient, equitable, and sustainable transportation networks communities want. In fact, these innovative technologies could do just the opposite, especially if they are not deployed wisely. Cities must collect the right data and enact the right policies to ensure they do not exacerbate problems like inequity and traffic, and to hold themselves accountable to the promise of new mobility technologies.
In this webinar, you will find out why - and how - the smartest cities of tomorrow will be those that adopt data-driven transportation strategies today. Join for Laura Schewel's presentation to gain insights into:
• Why the status quo for transportation data collection is no longer good enough
• The types of Massive Mobile Data that are useful for transportation and urban planning
• Algorithmic processing techniques that are critical for making this data useful
• Case studies from California and Virginia that demonstrate why Massive Mobile Data drives more effective transportation planning
• A forward-looking blueprint for using Massive Mobile Data to maximize the potential benefits of new transportation technologies - and minimize negative impacts
Laura Schewel founded StreetLight Data, a mobility analytics provider, after spending more than a decade as an advanced transportation researcher and statistician at the Rocky Mountain Institute and FERC. She has particular expertise in transportation systems, sustainability and safety, and vehicle/system modeling and analysis.
