The Internet of Things Training | IoT Training Overview Course Description

The Internet of Things Training | IoT Training Overview, a fast-paced 1-day course, will help you understand the key concepts of IoT and how the various pieces of this technology work together to enable new end-user and infrastructure applications in the near-term and the future.

We will explain what IoT is, what it means at its basic, mid, and advanced levels, what’s motivating its rapid growth, the enabling technologies, and examples/case studies. We will discuss the standards, architecture, design principles, and security issues. We will talk about the business of IoT and what you need to know to become an ‘IoT entrepreneur’, with some sample projects. We will also examine the long-range impact of this technology on the business landscape, everyday life, and the society as a whole.

Customize It:

● If you are familiar with some aspects of this course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
● We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the course around the mix of technologies of interest to you (including technologies other than those included in this outline).
● If your background is nontechnical, we can exclude the more technical topics, include the topics that may be of special interest to you (e.g., as a manager or policy-maker), and present the course in manner understandable to lay audiences.
