Nabto CEO To Discuss Solving IoT Challenges Using Peer-to-Peer Connectivity At EE Live! 2014

Carsten_NabtoNabto’s CEO Carsten Rhod Gregersen will look at how engineers can solve IoT challenges using peer-to-peer connectivity as part of the EE Live! 2014’s Embedded Systems Conference in just a few weeks.

Returning March 31, ESC will offer four days of technical training, tutorials, and postmortems — dozens of sessions focusing on eleven distinct conference tracks. ESC will be one of several programs featured at the EE Live! 2014 conference running at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center (also taking place March 31 – April 3).

Nabto develops an IoT communication platform with a focus on using peer-to-peer and distributed technology to solve the inherent challenges of IoT. Its eponymous platform is incorporated into multiple products that are already on the market, being used every day to transport a vast amount of data to many end-users and data acquisition systems.

Rhod Gregersen founded the Danish tech firm in 2007 with the goal of enabling enabling fast, secure, and free movement of data between people on the internet. He also co-founded IoT Forum, and founded Logiva, Mobite, and Cashserver. The serial entrepreneur will be joined by FreeRTOS director and Real Time Engineers founder Richard Barry for their EE Live! 2014 talk.

The two will discuss how engineers can go about “Solving IoT Challenges using Peer-to-Peer Connectivity” on Thursday, 1:00 – 2:00PM, as part of ESC’s “Real-Time Operating Systems” conference track. They will examine how connecting to and collecting data from devices across the IoT poses many challenges: traversing firewalls, address allocation, address resolution, authentication, privacy, autonomy, flexibility, ease of use — to name a few!

Gregersen and Barry intend to describe the workings of a technology that solves these issues by using a cloud server to mediate a direct peer-to-peer connection to IoT devices, wherever the IoT device is deployed. Peer-to-peer connections offer many benefits in addition to solving the fundamental challenges listed above. The duo will explain how these benefits can give your products a competitive edge. They will also share a simple method for bringing the benefits of remote connectivity to your products, complete with source files and details on how to integrate them into your software build.
