The Things Network is a two day conference focused on digital transformation through adopting smart technology that enables connectivity between devices. We will look at topics on Data Analysis, Robots, Space, DevOps, Ethical Open Data, LoRa, Smart City Standards and a whole bunch of use cases for LoRaWAN.
The Things Conference On Tour will be on the 15th & 16th October 2018, hosted at St. Andrews Hall in Norwich, Norfolk. You can find more information about this on our Venue page.
We’re confident we can attract 450 attendees from around the UK and Europe bringing together innovative businesses across sector who are using LoRaWAN enabled devices already and those seeking to learn more about LoRaWAN and LPWAN (Low Power Wide Area Network) solutions .
Whilst it is our first “The Things Conference On Tour” we have a fabulous team with experience running community groups and a popular conference in Norfolk & Ipswich.
We’re organising this event as we feel it is really important to offer learning, networking, promote excellence in the East of England, wider UK & Global The Things Network Community.
We feel that LoRa technology is an enabling technology that is as relevant as Wi-Fi, BlueTooth & NFC and is emerging to become the main method of communication to create Smarter Connected Communities due to its ability to transmit data over vast distances with no subscription fees.
Want to learn more about LoRa, check out our blog.
We can do this as LoRa is a type of Radio Frequency (Old Tech) that lies within the public broadcast range of frequencies – this type of technology is part of what has been classically called “Industry 4.0” and “Digital Transformation” and the bit that makes it “new” is the ability to transmit and receive over vast distances based on a tiny chip SEMTECH manufacture which uses a protocol named “LoRa” – the network LoRa produces is called “LoRaWAN”.
