Today's landscape of the RF protocols available for sensor to sensor to Gateway communication is richer than ever. As a result, new methods became available to setup and pair sensors-gateways-mobile apps-users. This richness is great but also makes it confusing to decide the right solution for a specific use-case.

In this meetup we will focus on the sweet spots of each of the protocols and pairing methods, and share real-world case studies and state-of-the-art best practices of the industry.

Will be fascinating!

Parking: There are several parking lots located near by. We recommend 12 HaZerem St or 11 HaThiya St parking lots which charges 20 NIS a day, no time limited.


18:00-18:15 Networking & snacks

18:15 5 min opening | Guy Vinograd, group organizer, Softimize

18:20 5 min Intro to Impact Labs | Sefi Attias, Innovation Shepherd, Impact Labs

18:25 - 18:50 Techniques for Initial Setup and Pairing of IoT Devices | Michael Mars, Architect, Softimize
Abstract: For an IoT application to work for the end user, somebody must set up and pair the pieces of this distributed system. Of course it's doable but the key challenge is whether it is doable quickly enough by the typical end user who may not be tech-savvy, and may be old / short-sighted / wearing gloves / etc..
In this session we'll discuss methods like QR code scanning, BLE+wifi, NFC, and various device discovery methods, and share case studies and lessons learned.

18:50 Plank and Snacks break (10 min)

19:00 - 19:25 IoT Communication Protocols Overview | Milan Yudkevich, Founder, SensiEdge
Abstract: BLE Mesh, ZigBee, Thread, LoRa, Sigfox, Wifi, NB-IoT are all valid protocols to use in many situations. But when you need to optimize your IoT solution, you must know the sweet spots and the limitations of the protocols in order to choose the right mix of protocols for you.

19:25-19:35 Yet, more snacks

19:35 - 19:55 My Journey to Create TargetPoint's IoT Solution | Eitan Shtarkman, Co-Founder, TargetPoint Technologies
Abstract: We started from the drawing board and now we have a working poultry vaccination IoT solution that via the cloud enables, for the first time in history, complete transparency of the vaccination process for the benefit of the health regulators, the meat distributors, and for us (most of us anyway..), the meat consumers.
It was not easy to make it, and I'm happy to "pay forward" and share the road we made.
