In September, more than 1,500 top IoT professionals from around the world will descend into Amsterdam for The Things Conference. We live in a world where every other device is becoming a connected device. As we see everything from a tiny sensor to vacuum cleaner to our car getting connected, there is also a need for a protocol that makes it possible.
The Things Conference acts as an anchor for LoRaWAN®, the Low Power, Wide Area (LPWA) networking protocol designed to wirelessly connect battery operated devices to the internet. The LoRaWAN specification also enables key Internet of Things (IoT) requirements such as bi-directional communication, end-to-end security, mobility, and localisation services.
Every industry has its own must attend event. If Mobile World Congress is a must attend for telecommunications and networking professionals then The Things Conference is a must attend for an IoT professional. The Thing Conference wants to chart the path ahead for the connected devices industry and its success seems plausible.
A conference unlike any other
The Things Conference shows the stark reality of the world that we live in right now. While COVID-19 pandemic does not affect us like the way it did in 2020, the pandemic is not in the rearview mirror just yet.
