The Internet of Things (IoT) is a complex internetwork intertwining everything. Billions of objects and people will communicate with each other every millisecond around the clock: some simultaneously, others intermittently or in bursts, some broadcasting to all recipients, others on command, observing communication channels, in bidirectional, hierarchical and multivariate patterns.
The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA), the leading trade association for global manufacturers, vendors, and suppliers of information and communications technology (ICT), has watched with interest as regulators – both in the United States and around the world – have begun to examine how devices will be made smarter and more dynamic through Internet technologies, and related policy implications.
Doug Green, Publisher of Telecom Reseller, speaks with Scott Belcher, CEO, about TIA, its membership, its position on the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) recent action regarding Net Neutrality, other current industry issues – and the Network of the Future conference in Dallas June 2 – 4, 2015.
It has now been over two years since President Obama announced, during the 2013 State of the Union address, an Executive Order on improving infrastructure cybersecurity. The Executive Order, among other important directives, required the National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST) to craft a voluntary Cybersecurity Framework, along with a roadmap for future areas that the Framework may explore.
RF Academics and TIA are very excited to offer their next workshop on Wi-Fi and Cellular Offloading as part of the Wireless and Cellular Network Workshop Series. The workshop will be held on February 11, 2015 at TIA headquarters in Arlington, VA.
