The hardware and application layers of IoT systems are supported by robust, mature markets, with devices tailored for any use case and pre-built infrastructure platforms from Microsoft, Google and AWS.
But the connectivity layer, without which the entire system is useless, still has numerous challenges. It takes too much knowledge and time to get data from sensors to apps that most staffs don't have.
This presentation will discuss a streamlined, secure approach to connectivity that will make building a wireless IoT network as easy as designing a mobile app, thereby removing the greatest barrier to mass IoT adoption.
Amir Haleem is the CEO and Co-Founder of Helium, an IoT development platform designed to make it easier to connect and make sense of the physical world. He founded the company because he recognized a gap between the advancements in software development and the ability to apply these technologies to the physical world of hardware and machinery. By applying the same techniques that enabled the explosion of web and mobile applications to IoT, Amir is driving the Helium Team to help industries and manufacturers quickly and easily bring the physical world online.
Helium makes it easy to simply and securely deliver IoT data from device to the cloud. Easily integrated with hundreds of development boards and compatible with your IoT channel of choice, Helium enables a lower total cost of ownership while simplifying how businesses apply IoT. Helium, located in San Francisco, is backed by GV, Khosla Ventures, FirstMark Capital and others.
