Overview:
Machine to Machine (M2M) connectivity holds the
promise to transform the productivity and potential of virtually every industry
vertical, from Transportation, to Healthcare to Industrial Automation to Energy
Management and others. In most cases mobile connectivity is the critical network
technology. There are parallels that can be learned from the mobile space, as we
know it, but there are vital differences in the demands of the M2M end-point
compared to that of a traditional mobile device. In particular, is the
difference in the device lifecycle.

M2M end-point deployment lifecycles
will be years, and in some cases decades, as opposed to the lifecycle of today’s
mobile devices that is often measured in months. This coupled with the fact that
M2M endpoints are often remote and unattended dictates the need to not only
monitor these devices, but also to provide software updates to those devices
without the high cost of hands on maintenance.

Join QNX Software Systems
and Deutsche Telekom AG for this webinar as we address these critical questions:

  1. How can you ensure deployed endpoints can be seamlessly updated and modified
    to meet changing requirements?
  2. How do you future proof the end point to ensure it will have the capacity to
    take on yet unknown needs.
  3. Who can companies turn to in order to enable and support these solutions?

Estimated Length: 1 hour, including Q&A

Who Should Attend: This seminar is best suited for Business
developers, Software engineers and designers; Hardware engineers and designers;
and System architects and engineers.
