This chip has dedicated market (M2M, IoT, and so on) and will be used as a gateway between home/private network and wireless/wide area network. After 802.11ah standard will be accepted GainSpan can easily catch it. If so, it is right step.
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.
