The Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructure, connectivity and radio systems provide the foundation for a whole range of initiatives focused on Connected Innovation, Smart Technologies, Smart Cities, Autonomous and Connected Transportation and Smart Industry, to name a few.
With such diverse use cases and deployment scenarios, it is important that engineers and project teams fully understand the requirements, as well as the capabilities, limitations, architecture, protocols, operation and protection / security mechanisms of the technologies and systems being installed. This programme provides a technical understanding of the key technologies and integration methods used to connect IoT systems – including IPv6, 5G, LTE-MTC/eMTC (Machine Type Communication), NB-IoT and EC-GSM-IoT; as well as Sigfox, LoRa, WiFi, Bluetooth Low Energy, and Weightless.
Who would benefit
Engineers involved with deployment, planning, equipment design, operation, optimization or monitoring of the IoT services and systems.
An engineering background with some knowledge of digital radio systems and general radio principles and techniques is assumed.
