Event will unite hundreds of industry innovators leading the delivery of advanced communications services in rural America
ARLINGTON, Va., Jan. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel will address hundreds of community-based telecommunications providers and innovators in the delivery of advanced communications services during the first ever Rural Telecom Industry Meeting & EXPO next month at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.
An advocate for universal service who believes strong communications markets can foster economic growth and security, Rosenworcel brings a decade and a half of public and private sector communications law experience to her position at the FCC. Before being sworn into office in May 2012, Rosenworcel served as senior communications counsel for the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation, where she helped develop policies involving spectrum auctions, public safety, broadband deployment and adoption, and universal service.
Rosenworcel's address during the opening general session on February 4 will mark her first appearance before rural telecommunications leaders at a first-of-its-kind industry event sponsored by the National Telecommunications Cooperative Association (NTCA) and the Organization for the Promotion and Advancement of Small Telecommunications Companies (OPASTCO). The joint meeting also features educational tracks designed specifically for telco managers, their employees and boards of directors, exploring topics such as global technology and consumer behavioral changes, customer-facing mobile apps, network security, cloud services, smart home applications and federal policies impacting rural telecom. The expo will showcase new and innovative telecommunications products and services designed to help rural providers continue delivering affordable, advanced communications services and move their businesses into the future.

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...

Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist. However, there are many IoT use cases where the cloud is not feasible or desirable. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, will discuss the strategies that exist to extend intelligence directly to IoT devices and sensors, freeing them from the constraints of ...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
