Essential Building Blocks for a Robust M2M Solution

Date: December 6, 2011  |  Time: 2 pm ET / 11 am PT  |  Duration: 1 hour

When designing an M2M solution, it's critical the machine can easily adapt to a growing universe consisting of: billions of connected devices, the Cloud, decision support systems, employee clients, and possibly, cross-company collaboration. That's why selecting proven and widely-used building blocks is essential – to avoid unforeseen interoperability, compatibility and performance issues down the road.

Join us to learn how you can significantly reduce time and effort with an Intel M2M reference design based on four major building blocks: computing architecture, wireless radios, Linux and real-time OSes, and an end-to-end security solution.
