Abstract: Unleashing the economic potential of the Internet of Things (IoT) is a NIST priority. However, inter-connecting heterogeneous sensors and other things is a challenge. We will discuss several network technology options depending on the requirements. The focus is on new options for Low Power and Wide Area Networks through LoRaWAN –a disruptive technology– including how it works, security aspects and potential uses. We will briefly mention cases where LoRaWAN is already deployed and our own work in progress. This talk is intended for broad audience and not limited to information technology related researchers.
Bio: Sebastian Barillaro is a guest researcher under the NIST-SIM Engagement Opportunity Program. He is an employee of the National Institute for Industrial Technology (INTI), the national metrology institute of Argentina, and teaches at the La Matanza National University (UNLaM). He works on software security of embedded systems and on development of IoT solutions. After arrival in NIST, he identified Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN) as cheaper technologies of growing interest for IoT systems. Sebastian is leading the design and development of a LPWAN-IoT test facility in NIST.
