Government Keynote II: IoT Platform for Innovation

Jul 11, 2017

5:20 pm - 5:40 pm

John P. Wagner

Deputy Executive Assistant Commissioner, Office of Field Operations

U.S. Customs and Border Protection

Rather than simply building individual IoT solutions, government agencies are beginning to look at creating IoT platforms that can serve multiple purposes. For example, as part of a biometric-based entry-exit system, U.S. Customs and Border Protection is developing a backend system that will pull data from multiple cameras at an airport. However, that same platform, which can accept input from multiple kinds of devices, could be leveraged by airlines to support any number of services in the future. In this session, Mr. Wagner will discuss how CBP is looking to industry to translate IoT into innovation.
