What do you know about IoT?

What do you know about Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN)? You may know a little or you may know a lot, however they are both fundamental to the success of any smart city. Here in Smart Dublin, we have a strategic partnership with the CONNECT Centre – An SFI research centre for networks and connectivity.


One of the major projects within the CONNECT Centre is ‘Pervasive Nation’ – Ireland’s Internet of Things testbed. On Wednesday 13th September, they are hosting a showcase morning to explain what the Low Powered Wide Area technology is, how it is used and how it may benefit you. This will be a free event including a keynote from Professor Linda Doyle, Director of CONNECT.


This is your opportunity to learn how the Pervasive Nation network can help with your Internet of Things research and innovation. This free, half-day event in Croke Park will include case studies to illustrate how SMEs and start-ups are already making use of this Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN). It will also include a walk-through demonstration of how sensors can easily be added to the network.


If you would like to attend the event, please register with the link below as places are limited.
