Sensors Expo and Conference is the industry's only event dedicated to sensors and sensor-integrated systems. During the three-day event, Digi representatives will host a series of ongoing presentations and demonstrations featuring a number of Digi M2M and IoT products, including two new offerings:

  • Digi XBee® Cellular, an FCC- and carrier-certified module that allows Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) quickly and easily integrate cellular connectivity into their designs
  • Digi Connect® Sensor+, an enterprise-ready, battery-powered cellular gateway solution for connecting to a wide range of external sensors, especially in remote locations.

Sessions and Demonstrations
At the show, Digi representatives will conduct sessions, preview upcoming products and showcase current solutions including the following:

  • Pre-Conference Symposium: On Tuesday, June 27, from 10:00 a.m.10:30 a.m. in Meeting Room 211D, Brent Nelson, senior product manager at Digi International, will be presenting, "Maximizing LTE Technology for Remote Sensor Monitoring" as part of the Embedded Technology - Designing for the Industrial IoT track. The session will review critical developments in cellular LTE roadmaps, including emerging and sunsetting technologies, most important to sensor OEMs and solution providers. This discussion will give an overview of the LTE roadmap, a description of new technologies, and how they specifically address application challenges in the industrial sensor markets.
  • Embedded Theater Session: On Wednesday, June 28, from 2:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., Quinn Jones, senior business development manager at Digi International, will be presenting, "The Transformative Power of Cellular IoT for Embedded Sensor Applications." The discussion will focus on the impact of new 3GPP standards for LTE-M/Cat-M1 and NB-IoT, and their transformative effect on market applications for embedded sensors. The session will assist developers in understanding the new tools and capabilities that are helping OEMs unleash innovation and bring more reliable, secure and cost effective solutions to market.
  • Digi XBee Cellular – Since the introduction of the North American (LTE CAT 1) version, Digi XBee Cellular has been providing a simple path to cellular connectivity and solving a major problem for OEMs that need to provide cellular solutions for remote equipment monitoring and control. At the show, Digi will be highlighting the capabilities and outlining the roadmap for the upcoming 3G Global, NB-IoT, and LTE-M variants.
    • In-booth demo: Digi will be showcasing Digi XBee Cellular's brand-new onboard programmability features through a demonstration based upon an agricultural application.
  • Digi Connect Sensor+Introduced in March, Digi Connect Sensor+ provides a "rollout ready" solution for remote sensor monitoring to be deployed in low or no power environments previously considered too harsh, remote or not economically viable to reach.
    • BYOS in-booth demo: At the show, Digi will be hosting "Bring-Your-Own-Sensor" demonstration where attendees are encouraged to bring their sensors to see how easy it is to incorporate them into IoT solutions. At the booth, Digi sales engineers will connect the provided sensors to a live Digi Connect Sensor+ demo. Within minutes attendees will see sensor data (i.e., level, flow, temperature, pressure, optical) in the Digi Remote Manager platform, or locally using the Digi Connect Wizard mobile application connected via Bluetooth.

"Storpool does only block-level storage so we do one thing extremely well. The growth in data is what drives the move to software-defined technologies in general and software-defined storage," explained Boyan Ivanov, CEO and co-founder at StorPool, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 16th Cloud Expo, held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City.
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable?Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, answered these questions and demonstrated techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances and co...
As Marc Andreessen says software is eating the world. Everything is rapidly moving toward being software-defined – from our phones and cars through our washing machines to the datacenter. However, there are larger challenges when implementing software defined on a larger scale - when building software defined infrastructure. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Boyan Ivanov, CEO of StorPool, provided some practical insights on what, how and why when implementing "software-defined" in the datacent...
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...
The cloud era has reached the stage where it is no longer a question of whether a company should migrate, but when. Enterprises have embraced the outsourcing of where their various applications are stored and who manages them, saving significant investment along the way. Plus, the cloud has become a defining competitive edge. Companies that fail to successfully adapt risk failure. The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...
The use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love. But as with any long-term affair, the honeymoon soon leads to needing to live well together ... and maybe even getting some relationship help along the way. And so it goes with container orchestration and automation solutions, which are rapidly emerging as the means to maintain the bliss between rapid container adoption and broad container use among multiple cloud host...
