Why You Can’t Miss The Thread Group’s Next All Members Meeting
By Thread Group
The Thread Group's first face-to-face All Members Meeting of 2017 is fast approaching and you don't want to miss it! The February 14-16 event in Atlanta is your best chance to gain deep industry insight and get a first-hand look at what The Thread Group has accomplished, including the launch of the Thread 1.1 specification; technology tools such as the Commissioning App and an Automated Test Environment; and the creation of additional key liaison partnerships including Open Connectivity Foundation, Fairhair Alliance and EEBus. We're also thrilled to continue to develop the specification for the expansion of Thread beyond the home into the commercial and professional sectors.
At the member meeting, the Thread Group has a tremendous opportunity to solidify its direction. To do so, we need you, our members, to actively participate so we can be first on industry issues, continue to educate the market and promote the current solutions available. Your voice will be heard, and we're eager to get your input on the challenges facing your industry so that we can continue to evolve Thread to be the best networking solution for IoT in the connected home and beyond.
In Atlanta, we have a packed agenda with interactive general and breakout committee sessions to:
- Clearly define market verticals and ensure messaging and materials are being developed to meet the needs of these varied audiences
- Outline and drive Thread applications and liaisons
- Participate in the successor specification working groups
- Continue efforts to define and develop the process to certify Thread 1.1 components and products; provide input to the on-going 1.1-certification quality improvements
We'll also see demos from leading industry liaison partners to highlight various application layers working on Thread and will feature insightful presentations from the Fairhair Alliance and founding Thread Group member Yale Locks. By attending the All Member Meeting, members and prospective members alike can gain firsthand knowledge about the Thread Group, the specification, and the experience of building Thread-based products. It's also an excellent opportunity to network with leading IoT companies and leverage the Thread ecosystem.
Come share your knowledge and insights to drive Thread adoption across the globe. You won't want to miss this!
