Echelon to Host ‘IzoT in a Box,’ ‘Internet of Lights’ and ‘Follow-Me Lighting’ Demos at Light + Building 2014 Show in Germany

Echelon Corporation (NASDAQ: ELON):

What: Echelon Corporation (NASDAQ: ELON), the world’s leading control networking platform provider, will host demos of its IzoT™ platform for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and of advanced lighting control technologies at Light + Building, the world’s biggest trade fair for lighting and building-services technology.

Echelon demos will take place at three of its partners’ booths:

  • Demo of Echelon’s ‘IzoT in a Box’ for the IIoT: In the LonMark Germany booth, Echelon will showcase and take orders for its recently introduced ‘IzoT in a Box’ FT 6000 Evaluation and Development Kit (EVK), based on its IzoT platform for the IIoT. The EVK speeds development of building automation devices using Echelon’s multiprotocol FT 6050 system on chip (SoC), which supports both LonWorks® and BACnet® protocols over IP. The EVK contains all the essential elements for creating, testing and deploying devices and control applications for the IIoT.

    Also in the LonMark Germany booth, Echelon OEM customer Distech Controls (www.distech-controls.eu) will demonstrate its RCL Light/Blind Series lighting and sunblind controllers—previously LonTalk-only products—using the IzoT-enabled FT 6050 SoC to support both native IP-addressed LonTalk over FT and BACnet/IP over FT at the same time.
  • Demo of Lighting 2.0: Located in The Future Room in Xicato’s (www.xicato.com) massive booth, Echelon will showcase its proof of concept (PoC) for Lighting 2.0—the convergence of networking, building automation and lighting technologies—based on Xicato’s new XIM intelligent Internet of Lights platform. Powered by upcoming Echelon DC voltage control systems, the new platform demonstrates how the Industrial Internet of Things can become a reality in professionally lit spaces. Echelon will also demonstrate existing control products for low-voltage indoor lighting.
  • Demo of ‘follow-me’ lighting control solution for outdoor lighting: In the LonMark International (www.lonmark.org) booth, Echelon will demonstrate its outdoor lighting ‘follow-me’ lighting control solution. The demos will show luminaires and sensors from multiple suppliers connected and interoperating in a mixed wired and wireless network. They will also highlight streetlight-specific features available from LonMark members, such as real-time control, command and monitoring, historical datalog, advanced scheduling and alarming, astronomical clock, and dynamic lighting based on weather and traffic sensors.

When: The Light + Building booths will be open March 30 – April 4, 2014

Where: Frankfurt Fair and Exhibition Centre, Frankfurt, Germany.

  • Xicato is in the Agora Hall, AG.0 Booth A10.
  • LonMark Germany is in Hall 9.0, Booth E10.
  • LonMark International is in Hall 5.0, Booth C12.

More information: Echelon’s IzoT platform for the IIoT is the next generation of the world’s most successful industrial control platform. IzoT software, chips and modules are designed to provide an effective, safe and simple migration path to the IIoT for the billion devices currently connected to control networks in industrial settings, as well as a platform for developing new IIoT devices and applications. The IzoT platform enables the creation of IIoT solutions that interoperate with existing devices while also supporting new IP-enabled devices, which can be part of the consumer or human IoT.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the public cloud best suits your organization, and what the future holds for operations and infrastructure engineers in a post-container world. Is a serverless world inevitable?
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.
Machine learning provides predictive models which a business can apply in countless ways to better understand its customers and operations. Since machine learning was first developed with flat, tabular data in mind, it is still not widely understood: when does it make sense to use graph databases and machine learning in combination? This talk tackles the question from two ends: classifying predictive analytics methods and assessing graph database attributes. It also examines the ongoing lifecycle for machine learning in production. From this analysis it builds a framework for seeing where machine learning on a graph can be advantageous.'
Enterprises are striving to become digital businesses for differentiated innovation and customer-centricity. Traditionally, they focused on digitizing processes and paper workflow. To be a disruptor and compete against new players, they need to gain insight into business data and innovate at scale. Cloud and cognitive technologies can help them leverage hidden data in SAP/ERP systems to fuel their businesses to accelerate digital transformation success.
