Connectivity for connected things and people: Open, free or …?
Once you have sensors, things and devices placed all around, it is mandatory to send these data either to another device or to a cloud and manage the data. The IoT connectivity is not exactly the same as Internet connectivity. Why? As the demand and requirements are different, there are also ways of communication different. The Session is about dedicated IoT networks approaches like NB-IoT, LoRa, WPLAN and similar. Are we able to connect all devices globally and why?
