Multi-Tech Systems, Inc., a leading global manufacturer of M2M and IoT devices, today announced its sponsorship of the IoT Prototype-to-Production Workshop on October 21, 2015 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. PT at the Arrow Electronics facility in Montreal, Canada. The workshop is co-sponsored by Arrow and Telit.
Programmers and tech professionals attending the workshop will learn how to prototype and develop an IoT project by incorporating the necessary hardware, transport/connectivity and chips. Attendees will also learn how to crowdsource libraries for sensor and peripherals using a cloud-based IDE, and how to move data from the edge sensor/processor to a cloud platform-as-a-service using a cellular module.
“In the fast-evolving world of IoT, solutions need to be responsive, innovative and nimble. In this hands-on workshop, participants will have the unique opportunity to learn how to get their IoT commercial solutions up and running using provided hardware platforms and mbed.org to create new connected prototypes,” said Michael Finegan, Director of IoT Business Development at MultiTech. “Programmers, product managers and engineers are encouraged to attend to learn how to build successful business practices and avoid critical pitfalls of IoT development.”
During the workshop, participants will learn through structured lab activities, how to compile and download programs to a micro-controller, integrate sensor technology, communicate over a cellular network, and publish information to the Telit IoT Platform. Workshop participants will need to acquire a user name and password to ARM's mbed environment and load device drivers on their laptop, prior to the event. Workshop instructors include leading executives from MultiTech, Telit and Arrow. Attendees will receive a development kit and data plan for prototyping purposes.
