Rick, thanks for the news on this. I suppose the Facebooks and Google's of this world can use this today! I briefly looked at the "typical power consumption of 10 watts per port for a fully loaded chassis" which I assume is the 8-slot 11RU you are referring to in the article.
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.
