InterDigital IoT Solutions Featured at IIC, TIA Events

WILMINGTON, Del., Sept. 19, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- InterDigital, Inc. (NASDAQ:IDCC), a mobile technology research and development company, today announced that the company will feature its latest IoT innovations at the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC)’s Q3 member meeting and the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) IoT Workshop.

IIC’s Q3 member-only meeting will be comprised of working sessions and a collaborative forum with members of Plattform Industrie 4.0. It will be held in Heidelberg, Germany from September 19-22, 2016. The quarterly meetings offer a unique opportunity to engage, learn, collaborate and network with members across all industries. Ash Wheeler, Director, Business Development at InterDigital, will present at two sessions:

  • On September 19th, Mr. Wheeler will provide Industrial IoT (IIoT) test-bed users with an overview of InterDigital’s oneMPOWER™/™ IoT platform, which offers a suite of horizontal services based on the oneM2M™ standard for managing multiple, inter-operable IIoT applications.
  • On September 20th, Mr. Wheeler will outline some of the system life-cycle challenges in trialing an intelligent transport systems IIoT application. The challenges are based on the oneTRANSPORT initiative, which is implementing a data marketplace where local government and traffic management authorities can exchange data, facilitating the development of innovative travel management solutions, including a travel management application for the UK's Silverstone race track, where events such as the 3-day, Formula 1 Grand Prix are held annually.
