IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) selected InterDigital's Dr. Chonggang Wang as an IEEE ComSoc Distinguished Lecturer for 2015-2016. As a subject matter expert on the IoT, Dr. Wang will help to plan and speak at the Distinguished Lecturer Tours. The selection is a great achievement for Dr. Wang as he presently leads InterDigital's IoT Protocols theme. In addition, Dr. Wang is involved in other aspects of the M2M/IoT team and participates in standards activities that include IETF and oneM2M.

InterDigital's Innovation Labs M2M/IoT team develops solutions for the M2M/IoT ecosystems that include cutting-edge technologies for different M2M/IoT standards development organizations (SDOs) and standard-compliant horizontal M2M/IoT service delivery platforms. The M2M/IoT team has developed expertise in critical M2M/IoT technical domains such as M2M Service Layers (e.g. oneM2M, ETSI M2M), IoT Protocols (e.g. IETF, OMA), Machine-Type Communications (e.g. 3GPP), Context-Aware Proximity Services (e.g. IEEE 802.15.8), eHealth (e.g. Continua Alliance) and M2M commercial platform development.

An example of the M2M/IoT team's expertise in the critical M2M/IoT technical domain, eHealth, can be seen in the video below. The video features InterDigital's Dale Seed, Member of Technical Staff, Embedded Systems, providing Proactive International PR's Joanne Turner with a brief look at the Continua eHealth demo presented at the December oneM2M showcase event in Nice.
