Barry Manz

Barry Manz has been involved in the microwave and wireless industries for 35 years. He is president of Manz Communications, Inc., a technical media relations company he founded in 1987 after leaving Microwaves & RF magazine as the editor, and has served 120 clients over the years. He has written more than 1,000 articles for more than 40 online and print publications, orchestrated the technical programs for five symposia, co-founded a magazine dedicated to embedded systems for defense applications, and has produced analyses for research organizations. Barry focuses on RF and microwave technology, wireless markets and technologies, IoT, test equipment, and analog, microwave, and digital semiconductors.


The fundamental requirement for enabling the promise of the Internet of Things (IoT) are interoperable connections between the various sensors at the edge to a gateway and up to and back from the cloud. While each node typically follows an industry standard, there is no single standard that maps across all of the touch points. The complexity increases when different types of sensor devices, collecting unique sets of data, all coverage on the same gateway. When you add into the mix the dynamic and competing standards roadmaps and new product releases from vendors, the task becomes even more daunting.

This Avnet IoT University course is designed to help you make sense of it all. Join Barry Manz, well known for his insight into industrial communications and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), for this informational session on the latest technologies and trends related to data transport in the IIoT. Barry will review emerging technologies, the latest standards and different available options for addressing distinct use cases. Barry will also field audience questions during this interactive session. You’ll walk away from the course with a clear understanding on how best to manage the data journey through your IIoT application. Topics covered will include IPv6 and its impact on IIoT, different strategies for networking based around use case and best practices for implementing interoperability between the nodes in your solution.
