At this point, anyone who's familiar with the Internet of Things has heard and most likely used the term "the cloud". It's universally known that the cloud holds a breadth of information, but the technology stack that comprises the device cloud has yet to be widely discussed.

Cloud to device connectivity, device ingress and egress, data normalization and protocol translation, and infrastructure and APIs construct the technology stack that keep the cloud afloat. This live webcast will help you to better understand the life of a message flowing from the edge to the cloud and to you.

Join Jon Bruner, Director of Hardware & IoT at O'Reilly, and Joe Biron, VP of IoT Technology at ThingWorx, for an interactive discussion that will help you:

  • Gain an understanding of traffic that is constantly moving from devices through the cloud
  • Discover the types of data translation that take place in an IoT cloud system
  • Identify examples of cloud-device communication through real life scenarios and statistics
