I'm not sure at what point we should stop associating a switch which calls itself "Ethernet" with something applicable to SDN. Certainly it would be smart to allow an SDN node to operate as an Ethernet switch, however SDN also certainly goes beyond just Ethernet.
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.
