From Concept to Production: What OEMs Can Learn From Verizon's IoT Product Strategy

Verizon’s IoT initiatives highlight key applications of the technology as well as the business opportunity it presents OEMs. Customers were requesting Condition-based Maintenance (CBM) and Critical Asset Tracking (CAT) solutions. Verizon had similar business challenges that OEMs face with the desire to either save money or make money with IoT. David Vasquez will share the story of how they developed IoT products for the marketplace and insights from two of their real-world use cases. He will also share the decisions made along the way to move from strategy to process to market-ready products. Brandon Cannaday will join David to offer both the technology and business perspective of evaluating IoT technology as a cornerstone in making turnkey IoT solutions reliable and secure.  
This approach to IoT is valuable information for any manufacturer.  
This session will offer practical guidance to you in your IoT building.  We look forward to your participation and to addressing your questions.
