Jeffery: As I consolidate "upwards" I consolidate in custom Ethernet packets and then send them on to an SQL Server/Database (Usually Interbase -- because of small memory/disk footprint) -- usually to a Linux server. Is that what you are thinking?
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
