Telit announced Monday the official launch of Telit IoT University. Designed for IoT developers and integrators, Telit IoT University, part of the company’s IoT Know How suite of consultative services, teaches customers and partners how to succeed in launching IoT solutions that deliver measurable business outcomes.
The University, an expansion of the company’s original deviceWISE University program, includes an innovation and design lab that showcases Telit deviceWISE Ready partner applications and gives students experience with a variety of hardware components required for a successful IoT deployment.
Located at Telit IoT Platforms division in Boca Raton, Florida, Telit IoT University features a broad curriculum, including courses and hands-on labs co-developed by Telit and Florida Atlantic University’s Institute for Sensing and Embedded Network Systems Engineering (I-SENSE).
I-SENSE was established to capitalize on emerging sensing, communication, and data analytics technologies to embark on a new trajectory of excellence in the institution’s research, education, and public service missions. Initially the institute serves as a technology clearinghouse for sensing, communication, and data management technologies, providing relevant expertise and engineering support. Secondly, the institute serves as an interdisciplinary hub, cultivating research, education, and service initiatives that cut across academic units; and provides the administrative support necessary to sustain those initiatives.
The I-SENSE mission is to catalyze exploration and discovery at the confluence of sensing, smart systems, and critical application areas to support FAU’s aspiration of becoming the country’s next top-tier research university.
Telit IoT University courses include IoT for Developers that teaches students how to connect “things” to “apps” by exploring multiple transportation types and methods while learning how to use the management portal; IoT for Integrators that introduces and reinforces the critical tasks involved with designing, launching, integrating and maintaining an enterprise IoT solution; and IoT Immersion that includes a combination of IoT for Developers and IoT for Integrators, this course teaches students how to integrate devices with back-end applications and includes a comprehensive final project aimed at solving a real-world scenario.
The university also offers courses in industrial IoT for integrators, which has been designed for manufacturers, this course teaches attendees how to acquire, send and transfer bi-directional information between PLCs and ERP applications; IoT Sales & Marketing Essentials that provides a high-level overview of IoT concepts, use cases and IoT solutions; and IoT Operations & Administration that gives the technician or engineer tasked with the administration of an IoT solution the skills to maintain the system.
“Telit IoT University helps companies accelerate their IoT projects from idea to completion by providing the necessary tools and easy access to Telit’s IoT ecosystem and developer resources,” said Fred Yentz, CEO of Telit IoT Platforms. “Leading companies immediately apply what they learn at Telit IoT University to launch innovative products and services and improve operational efficiencies to capitalize on the full potential of today’s digital transformation.”
Courses, which are taught monthly, provide hands-on experience to help students start prototyping an IoT solution. Customers may also request on-site training at their location.
