World’s Longest Mesh Protecting Lives in Thailand“, Pramod Akkarachittor, VP of Product Management, Firetide Inc. – Public safety â?? protecting lives from the wrath of mother nature â?? was the major driver for development of Thailandâ??s wireless infrastructure.  Rural and rugged terrains with no infrastructure called for a wireless infrastructure that delivers fiber-like performance coupled with fiber-like reliability.  The presentation will cover the main drivers for a wireless mesh infrastructure comparing it to the alternatives.  We will go over the operational and deployment challenges faced by the team, as well as the RF design and the reasoning behind it.  In conclusion we will present the factors for a successful mesh deployment.

Emerging Technologies for Smart Meshed Cities“, Dr. Satwant Kaur, Chief Technologist – Innovation, HLS, Hewlett-Packard — Rather than using centralized operating centers and systems, smart cities employ the wireless mesh network model that distributes city management to the granularity of the local level.  The discussions will cover what makes a meshed city smart and the intelligent services thereof made possible by distributed local management of networked devices.
She will discuss distributed, fixed and mobile mesh networks, vehicular area networks (VAN) and other emerging technologies that are used to build smart cities.  More importantly, she will show us how smart cities functions do fail, but the distributed nature of Smart City gives it the ability to identify and self learn from failures in an expedient manner.  The discussions will also cover some applications, tools and services that make the notion of Smart City very appealing.
