Building a Complete IoT Solution that Will Last 10 Years
With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday's technologies. So much change, so quickly. What do you do if you have to build a solution from the ground up that is expected to live in the field for at least 5-10 years?
This is the challenge we faced when we looked to refresh our existing 10-year-old custom hardware stack to measure the fullness of trash cans and compactors.
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Alan Williamson, a principal at ParkerGale Capital, will take a deep dive on some of the decisions they made and why they went a given path, from utilizing custom boards to single-board-computers, from cellular networks to LoRa and Sigfox, and choosing the necessary software stack that can support this in the long run.
Alan Williamson is a principal at ParkerGale Capital, a private equity firm based in Chicago. Prior to joining ParkerGale, he served as CTO at Royall & Company where he was responsible for the architecture, development and maintenance of all systems to support the needs and requirements of clients. With a deep background in high-volume server processing, Alan was the first U.K. Java Champion, a program by Oracle/Sun to recognize the Top 100 people who have contributed the most to Java.
