The move echoed a $10 million initiative at Shenendehowa School District in 2012. With the new Common Core State Standards Initiative being implemented in at least 35 states (including New York) this year, it could be inevitable that all schools, including those here in the Capital Region, will
This list is for discussions relating to the development, clarification, and implementation of IPv6 access and meshing over deterministic (scheduled) MAC with specific interest in IEEE 802.15.4e TSCH. Focus is on issues related with time slots awareness at L3, time slots allocation and distribution, and the eventual mix of centralized and distributed operation for routing and resource allocation. The list should facilitate exchanges between opensource implementers, share on the applicability of the technology and address the gaps in existing IETF specs from RPL and 6LoWPAN.

A mountain of data that only the largest IT departments could hope to handle is a tall order for a midsize customer. But IoT is actually much easier to grasp than it seems, and produces a variety of advantages depending on how it is employed.

My father, when I was a child, might have struggled to list all the motors he owned (how many, exactly, are in a car?) but could have told you how many devices were in the house that had a chip in.
Today, I have no idea how many device I own with a chip, but I could tell
