This workshop is an exploration in envisioning IoT solutions and service models through lean design methods and rapid prototyping. We will learn about using a human-centered approach that we at Universal Mind call "Story Sprints” to help generate new solutions and networks.
Creating these stories leverages the power of design-thinking to help us understand how your IoT technology or services will address your customer's needs. This will help you think more creatively about your company’s business model, as well as the supplier/solution provider business models.
You’ll see how using the Story Sprint approach will lead to applying your technology to solutions that are meaningful to customers and lead to better end experiences for everyone.
This is a hands-on, interactive workshop so bring your creativity, bring your expertise, bring your projects and get ready to have fun!
NOTE: There is a $45 fee to add this workshop to your registration. Register now!

With innovation and ideation at the heart of our mission, Opus-3 is the birthplace and home to leading initiatives’ such as NEX, an invitation only IoT innovation lab, Ellum.net and Cedars.net, two community fiber initiatives, and a smart cities working test bed environment for new and mature business entities.
The tour will present an overview of running a datacenter in the new digital economy, the complexity these new technologies and markets pose for data center providers and customers, and highlight some of the innovations that have been created to make communities smarter and more sustainable.

To support the wireless needs of the stadium’s digitally connected patrons, AT&T Stadium has built a record breaking Distributed Antenna System (DAS) network infrastructure to meet the capacity demands of mobile users. At the 2015 College Football National Championship game AT&T Stadium broke the record for the most wireless data traffic at a single sporting event, carrying over 6 Terabytes of wireless traffic.
Building such a network required hundreds of access points throughout the stadium and miles of fiber optic cabling, plus three interconnect rooms. To support the stadium’s world record-sized video board, plus more than 3,700 other monitors throughout the stadium, AT&T Stadium hosts a 3000-square-foot data center that coordinates video traffic within the stadium and between content delivery networks and broadcasters.
TIA is proud to offer an opportunity for those attending TIA 2015 to get a behind-the-scenes look at the DAS and Data Center infrastructure supporting the stadium’s Texas-sized networking needs.
