Complexities in Scalable mass deployment of Industrial IoT
2016 was the year for IoT proof-of-concepts. Early adopters are coming to the realization of the complexities involved in scalable mass deployment of Industrial IoT. These issues include deployment complexities, security issues starting from hardware root of trust to OS security to network security to cloud security and application vulnerabilities, and finally issues related to extensibility - the ability to future-proof oneself so as to be able to add additional functionality at the edge once the solution is deployed. The recent DDOS attacks have added a further dimension to this complexity. This session will focus on these 3 areas (deployment complexity, security and extensibility) in-depth so people can understand the issues with relevant case studies as well as ROI analysis.
