FOUNDATIONAL TECHNOLOGIES PRACTICE

The IEEE SA Foundational Technologies Practice has been established to help standardize seamless and ubiquitous connectivity across all applications of connected technologies in a trust-worthy and enabling manner. Though the development of a global community of interested volunteer stakeholders, the Foundational Technologies practice can help to address core issues of Trust, Identity, Privacy, Protection, Security and Safety (TIPPSS) through both foundational level horizontal standards and domain specific standards.

Sensors Series: Path to Sensors Interoperability

Wednesday, 22 Sep 2021 - 22 Sep 2021 | 11:00AM - 12:00PM ET

Interoperability between a sensor, a gateway and an end-user’s application is the “Achilles’ heel” for today’s IoT sensor manufacturers and solution providers. Industry experts are looking for the right wireless protocol to provide the scalability, security and flexibility needed to overcome these interoperability challenges. This webinar will focus on the common interoperability challenges for IoT end-users, the certifications challenges and the importance of choosing the right wireless protocol between wireless gateways and sensors. This webinar will also cover the IEEE plan and path to achieving interoperability for IoT enabled sensors.


The Impact of Time-Sensitive Networks - An Introduction to IEEE 802.1

Thursday, 16 September 2021 | 09:00 AM - 10:00 AM ET

This webinar will give an introduction to the market-relevant standards of the IEEE 802.1 Working Group.  This group was created over 40 years ago and developed the base architecture and bridging standards for IEEE 802 technologies.  While MAC bridging has evolved into VLAN bridging it has also been enhanced with features supporting time-sensitive networking (TSN).  In addition, the WG has also developed other higher-layer standards including link aggregation (LAG), link discovery (LLDP), encryption (MACsec), and authentication (1X).  Recently the group has developed profiles of TSN features for specific verticals.
