What Is CBRS and How Does It Help IoT?

Article | February 26, 2020

The Internet of Things continues to grow fueled by applications that solve problems for enterprise customers. One of the biggest barriers to IoT solutions in enterprise settings is reliable and low-cost wireless connectivity. Where Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, LoRa, Zigbee and others have tried to solve the problem before, CBRS (Citizens Broadband Radio Service) is posed to offer a viable alternative for enterprise IoT connectivity. Specific to the United States, Citizen’s Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) is a piece of the radio spectrum between 3550 – 3700 MHz. This is a valuable area of the spectrum because it allows good propagation (ability to penetrate walls and go medium distances) with the benefits of higher bandwidth services, such as LTE and 5G.

Hardware Threats to an IoT Ecosystem

Article | March 31, 2020

An IoT ecosystem, like any biome on Earth, is constantly subjected to changes and threats at various scales. Whether the system is an asset tracking solution in a hospital to help deliver more effective healthcare or cold chain management ensuring temperature control during transportation, the hardware/sensor is where the data journey commences in an IoT ecosystem. The integrity of these hardware components is paramount to the success of an IoT solution, but there are currently critical threat points on these devices which left unaddressed could be disastrous. Much of the focus of IoT security is on keeping the communicated data from IoT devices untampered up the solution stack. Methods like end-to-end AES encryption are currently standard by most network protocols and are well secured and tested.

Automotive Sales: Improving the Customer Experience Using IoT

Article | April 7, 2020

Customer touchpoints throughout the automotive sales cycle are prime candidates for IoT innovation. Across the board, the data derived from these IoT applications have the capability to provide insights and actionable outcomes which can significantly improve the customer experience. When a customer arrives at a dealership, it may be difficult for the dealer to know if they have what the customer is looking for. For instance, a customer might be coming in to see a particular vehicle, test-drive a car they’ve already seen, or to casually browse their options. Without any data behavior on the customer beforehand, sales personnel or the dealership may not be properly equipped to handle the customer’s request. Perhaps a requested car is no longer on the main show floor for immediate display but instead buried somewhere in a backlot. Maybe another car that was requested for a test drive may not yet be properly serviced for operation. These are only a few of the challenges associated with automotive sales that IoT is capable of helping to improve.

Smart Submeters And Their Key Benefits

Article | February 14, 2020

Energy management and efficiency utilization are the challenges for building owners, facility managers, and tenants. With the traditional metering solutions, building owners can’t measure accurate consumptions, usage patterns, and downtimes. It is simple: You can’t manage if you can’t measure. Building owners and tenants have been speculating about bettering and changing their approach to optimize energy consumption by deploying smart submeters. In contrast to traditional electrical meter, a smart submeter is infused with network connectivity features to upload the data. They track, monitor, measure, and upload data to servers for real-time visibility. Earlier building owners used to bill according to the space occupied by the tenants. Think about inaccurate billing – have you ever seen a bill that confused you?
