Workshop on Internet of Things (IoT)




Internet of Things


Having Smartphones and Gadgets in hand makes it hard to believe that these devices are controlling our day-to-day activities simply because of the information that we store in them. We have GPS Sensor in our devices. How about sensor devices at home or work? Sensor networks are being integrated in our material environment, while algorithms and artificial intelligence make sense of the generated data and influence our public and private lives.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the game changer, and it will bring about tremendous improvements in user experience and system efficiency. It will be the next grandiose thing for both operators and associated industries. It will have a transformational impact on all industries and re-shape business models and industry configurations.

Telecontran’s 3-day workshop on Internet of Things (IoT) provides a core grounding in how science and technology have developed to enable the IoT as well as the design principles of the IoT and its device and infrastructure-related architectures, technologies and protocol frameworks that aimed at enabling the formation of highly distributed and ubiquitous networks with seamlessly connected heterogeneous devices. This course is designed to provide delegates with a comprehensive knowledge of the IoT architecture and different communication protocols.

After successful completion of this 3-day workshop participants will be able to

  • Understand what “the Internet of Things” means and how it relates to Cloud computing concepts
  • Learn how open platforms allow to store sensor data in the Cloud
  • Learn overview of IoT with Data science
  • Predict implications of IoT for your business.
  • Examine the role of enabling technologies for IoT, such as ZigBee, RFID, LoRaWAN, cloud computing and Big Data.
  • Identify security and governance issues with IoT.


This 3-day workshop is designed to help Software developers, Hardware Engineers, Sensor manufacturer, Cloud data scientist and Business manager who are planning to adopt and deploy Internet of Things products, solutions and IoT services.  Executives who want to learn how leading companies leverage advanced analytics, Enterprise architects, data warehousing, and business intelligence professionals looking to provide the infrastructure for big data and advanced analytics, Data scientists, Business Analysits, UI Developers, in short anyone who sees potential in IoT and Big Data can participate in this training.
