December 30, 2007

Mtg: ZigBee Wireless Sensors and Control Networks: A Watershed Event

by @ 11:28 am. Filed under ALL, Communications, Computers/Software, Electronics Design, Engineering Mgmt, Semiconductors

TUESDAY February 19
SCV Consultants’ Network of Silicon Valley
Speaker: Bob Heile, ZigBee Alliance
Time: 7:00 PM
Cost: none
Place: KeyPoint Credit Union, 2805 Bowers Ave., Santa Clara
RSVP: not required


Dr. Bob Heile is Chair of the ZigBee Alliance. ? This talk will provide an overview of the alliance and its mission. He will address the basic functionality delivered by the standard, where it fits in the wireless arena, plus next steps for the 230-member strong ecosystem of companies creating applications for use in home, commercial and industrial markets.

Bob will discuss why ZigBee is uniquely positioned to enable Automatic Metering Infrastructure and the Smart Grid offering energy utilities and their customers unprecedented ability to control and manage their energy consumption for a greener world. ? He will also present his insight on major corporations plans to offer new ZigBee products and services, as well as information on how companies are implementing ZigBee technology to save money, improve reliability, and offer new services.

Because ZigBee technology is expected to be embedded in a wide range of products and applications around the world,? Dr. Heile is uniquely positioned to offer observations on the consequences OEMs and their customers could face by selecting the wrong technology or by simply ignoring the need to plan for and adopt this next great wave of innovation.
