MEETING FOR A DEMONSTRATION OF THE THINGS NETWORK https://www.thethingsnetwork.org/ About the Meeting: 6:15 pm - Open for Networking 6:45 pm - Introductions 7:00 pm - The Things Network Demonstration An overview of the underlying technologies (LoRa and LoRaWAN) and learn how The Things Network is helping regular people build a worldwide free-access wireless IoT network. This network can be used for anything you want, including prototypes you build, commercial sensors you buy, and complete systems you deploy. You'll find out what it takes to connect a device to TTN and how you can help build out the network by adding your own gateway. The format will be part lecture/presentation and part demo, with a sampling of equipment for show & tell that you can put your hands on. Our speaker tonight is Bill Eason, who provides engineering consulting services to a number of large industrial clients as they strive to gain new insight into their equipment and processes. He also provides training to organizations wishing to bring their workforce up to speed on the power of IoT and what it can do to transform their businesses. Most recently, he was a Research Scientist with Georgia Tech's Research Network Operations Center (RNOC), a unit of the Institute for People and Technology (IPaT). He led RNOC's Internet of Things (IoT) research efforts, engaging hundreds of undergrad and graduate students each year, teaching mobile app development, user-centered design, innovation, and entrepreneurship, while developing innovative IoT solutions to life's problems. An engineering graduate of Vanderbilt and Georgia Tech, he has over 30 years of experience in computing, networking, and telecom, from startups to multi-billion-dollar companies and is a former small business owner as well.
