ANT Wireless Welcomes Technology Leaders to Front Seat of IoT Ecosystem Transformation

Leaders from DC Rainmaker, IBM, Herman Miller, Intrigo, and Lux Capital to Join 2017 ANT Wireless Symposium

COCHRANE, AB--(Marketwired - September 12, 2017) - ANT Wireless, a division of Dynastream Innovations, an innovator in ultra-low power (ULP) wireless technology will be exploring the technical and commercial possibilities of ANT and ANT+ at its annual symposium from September 26th-29th in Banff, Alberta.

The conference, with the theme of inspiring tomorrow, has evolved from focusing on ULP solutions for sport and fitness to discussing real world connectivity use cases that drive ULP innovation in all industries. Carrying the momentum of their long-running conference, the ANT Wireless Symposium now attracts ANT Annual Members and ANT Adopters from various organizations and industries around the globe to the scenic and breathtaking landscape of Alberta.

Highly anticipated keynotes will feature the inventive and creative minds of Herman Miller outlining their IoT success with ANT, DC Rainmaker, bringing in-depth reviews to sports technology and training, and returning juggernaut IBM on connectedness achieving far-reaching transformative technologies, like artificial intelligence and AR/VR. Between keynotes, workshops and seminars, industry professionals can share their experiences to cultivate and explore new partnerships while learning about the benefits of using ANT and ANT+ for connectivity solutions.

"Every year we look forward to this event and bring a fresh approach. Technology leaders and decision-makers can count on discussions that tackle the latest IoT questions and new ways to uncover solutions within the community," said James Fujimoto, Director, ANT Wireless. "The ANT Wireless Symposium collectively empowers organizations to get the most out of the breadth of ANT capabilities as well as grants more access for customers and partners to be an integral part IoT's transformation and expansion."

Each year, ANT chooses honorees for the ANT Wireless Inspired+ Awards. This year's winners will be announced on Thursday, September 28th and will join the ranks of last year's recipients:

  • Birdi, 2016 winner of Inspired+ for their smart detectors
  • COBi, 2016 winner of Inspired+ for their smart cycling system
  • Tacx, 2016 winner of Inspired+ for the Tacx Neo road surface simulation

The ANT Symposium wishes to give special thanks to Nordic, a premier sponsor of ANT Symposium for 10 years now, as well as other sponsors including:

  • Connect IQ
  • Dayton Industrial
  • Rutronik
  • Cardiosport
