BYOD, IoT, Apps And More: Interop's Mobility Track

From BYOD to app development, to IoT to privacy, Interop's Mobility track will help you accelerate your mobile strategy.

We’re living in a mobile-centric world. Organizations must support smartphones and tablets and have a compelling mobile presence to connect with customers and partners. But mobility isn’t limited to Android and iOS.

A growing number of IoT devices rely on wireless connectivity, and advances in mobile payments and near-field communication will create new business opportunities. Meanwhile, the WLAN is more essential than ever for user access and productivity.

The Mobility track at Interop Las Vegas provides strategic insights into current and emerging mobile challenges and opportunities. Here are a few highlights of what’s on offer:

The Mobile-Friendly Enterprise: From Apps To BYOD

This day-long workshop tackles two key elements of enterprise mobility: app development and BYOD. The first half of the workshop delves into the issues around the design, development, and deployment of a mobile application, and the tools and techniques available to solve those issues.

The discussion will also focus whether to develop apps in-house or hire an outside service, and will provide insights on the pros and cons of native apps, HTML apps, and hybrid designs.

Part 2 provides practical information for developing a BYOD policy that balances user choice and access, while protecting corporate data. Attendees will get concrete details for building a sensible architecture built on data classification and your organization’s requirements. The speaker will also share details of a real-world implementation of BYOD policy at a large non-profit.

The Next-Gen WLAN: An Enterprise Roadmap

Wireless is now the default access medium at the office (not to mention school campuses, cafes, stadiums, and so on), so availability and robust performance are musts. This workshop drills into the 802.11ac standard to get you up to speed on what’s available in phase 1 and what’s on the horizon with phase 2.

It will also cover the software-defined movement, which is spreading to the WLAN, and look at efforts to monetize WLAN investments through social WiFi and location applications.

Privacy Implications Of Mobile Advertising Location Data

Mobile apps collect a lot of personal information, including location data. This session explores the current state of privacy laws and regulations from the perspective of developers and IT managers. It aims to help them understand how location information is used in mobile advertising, when consent is required, and whether controls are sufficient to use location information legally.

Building The WiFi Onramp To The Internet Of Things

Machine-to-machine communication puts new and different demands on wireless networks. Get insights on current and future developments for building robust WLANs that can support higher densities and differentiated security requirements for a variety of IoT devices.

How To Harness The Mobile Payments Boom

Mobile payments are poised for amazing growth: Global in-store mobile transactions will jump from $55 billion in 2014 to $570 billion in 2018, according to 451 Research. This session provides a snapshot of mobile payment technologies, from mobile wallets to NFC, then explores implementation challenges and analyzes drivers that will make mobile the de facto payment option in the near future.

Interop Las Vegas is April 27 through May 1. Register now to learn the latest technology developments, accelerate your career, and network with your peers in the IT community.
