OverviewFor decades, multitudes of embedded machines have been specialized islands of vertical fixed-function intelligence with unique attributes. As the need and opportunity evolves to connect and coordinate between these embedded machines and the people that need to interact with them, many factors must be considered. Machine to Machine (M2M) offers new efficiencies in operational management of networked devices, the addition of new services and new business models for stakeholders within the value chain. Freescale and QNX will present an overview of revenue opportunities for M2M and the essentials of developing secure, reliable and scalable managed device endpoints, coupled with management concepts for devices in cloud computing.
1 hour, including Q & A.
Who should attend:
This seminar is best suited for Software engineers and designers, Hardware engineers and designers and System architects and engineers.
