Achieving IoT-Ready Network Connectivity
IoT will transform networks by increasing both the complexity and strategic importance of this underlying infrastructure. As the number of connected devices per human increases from a handful to thousands, and connectivity for moving autonomous vehicles and other complex applications ups the stakes for human safety, a reliable, secure network connection will be the difference between IoT success and failure. Whether the technology is 5G or a local solution, the challenge of maintaining network connectivity in mobile, rugged environments is a critical one. How can we position the network infrastructure for success?
Martello CEO John Proctor looks at best practices to build IoT-ready network connectivity solutions. Drawing on the company’s collaboration with BlackBerry QNX, where Martello is developing solutions that will maintain reliable connectivity in a moving autonomous vehicle, John looks at the unique challenges posed by autonomous vehicles, smart cities and other IoT applications, and how to leverage technology for best outcomes.
As President and CEO of Martello Technologies, John oversees corporate direction and strategy to grow the business and ensure the company’s position as a global industry leader. This local tech company made history in 2018, as the first Ottawa tech company to go public since 2015 when it debuted on the TSX Venture Exchange in September. John is an accomplished speaker and recently joined a panel discussion on the investment opportunity in IoT at the Cantech Conference in January 2019.
