IoT and M2M Technologies

2 Days / 4 Live Online Sessions (0900-1230) / Technical Level: Level 1

Course Code: FG2201

Live Online: 27 Feb-2 Mar 23

This course is designed to give a comprehensive overview of existing and emerging IoT (Internet of Things) and M2M (Machine to Machine) technologies. It is aimed at those working with, or assessing IoT / M2M projects and related opportunities.

We build a good understanding of the scope, potential applications, use cases, and deployment options that are feasible, as well as the technologies and techniques available to efficiently deploy and operate the supporting infrastructure – devices, SIM Card / eSIM, networks, platforms, and wider ecosystem.

Using the main industry/global models (ETSI, 3GPP, GSMA, IoT-A, OECD), the course identifies the major requirements of modern M2M systems (from the latest SCADA systems to evolving IoT solutions), and then explores how those requirements can be met using the key existing and emerging technologies.

In particular, we build a comprehensive view of Cellular M2M, comprising the latest 5G techniques (including NB-IoT and CIoT as key 5G enabling technologies, and features such as MEC), MTC (Machine Type Communication) for LTE, and legacy GPRS deployments. In addition, we develop a good understanding of M2M eSIM remote profile provisioning – used primarily to manage device connectivity.

Who would benefit

The course is an ideal foundation for …

  • those working in the industry who need to rapidly upskill to help assess, driveor develop IoT opportunities within their own organisation
