The only constant in today's rapidly moving automotive industry is change - Learn more about it with Aeris at CCE Nov 18-20

Aeris will continue to showcase its innovative leadership in the automotive and the Internet of Things sectors during two sessions at the Connected Car Expo (CCE) November 18-20 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

CCE will be held in conjunction with the L.A. Auto Show, with more than 16,000 influencers in the connected car market expected to attend the three-day expo. The event showcases innovative companies designing the future of the connected car, and serves as an open forum for attendees to connect with media and key players who are shaping the future.

Aeris’ Managing Director, Steve Millstein will discuss how the current practice of charging a subscription for connectivity is nothing more than a barrier to extracting the real value of connected cars. Mr. Millstein will explain how to tear down today’s failing business model and make the promise of connected cars a reality today.

Aeris’ leadership in the evolving state of mobility extends well beyond the automotive sector. Drew Johnson, VP of Engineering at Aeris, will outline how getting 80 billion devices connected by 2020 will require multiple access technologies beyond cellular. Mr. Johnson will show how Aeris makes cellular better for machines today, and what is required to make many access technologies work for IoT. Learn more at the following sessions:

TITLE:     Building a New Business: Restructuring and Revision

WHEN:     Tuesday, November 18, 2014 at 2:45-3:10pm PST

WHERE:    Meeting Room 403 A&B

WHO:     Steve Millstein, Managing Director, Aeris

WHAT:     The only constant in today’s rapidly moving automotive industry is change. This includes business, technology, and manufacturing assumptions. New innovations and ways of thinking now enable us to align technology and talent in order to crowd source a car’s plans, parts and production for a truly customized car. They also make connectivity possible for the masses and subscriber-retention issues a thing of the past. To keep up with these transformational changes, car companies are finding new ways to invigorate their engineering teams, changing both who and how they hire. Join this session for an educational discussion about the opportunities and struggles that come with challenging the status quo.

TITLE:     The Practicalities of Connectivity: What Does It Really Take to Deliver?

WHEN:     Thursday, November 20, 2014 at 10:20-10:35am PST

WHERE:    Meeting Room 403 A&B

WHO:     Drew Johnson, VP of Engineering, Aeris

WHAT:     From telematics to M2M, everything we own and is becoming just as connected as we are. All these connections are just wireless magic, right? There are many challenges to building a high-bandwidth wireless network that needs to reconfigure and rebalance itself. Burgeoning quantities of new devices with demanding mobility or reliability requirements will impact RF congestion, network hand-offs, QoS, and network capacity. Join this session to take a look into what goes on behind-the-scenes to build the wireless networks that connect our devices and our lives.
