International Data Corporation (IDC) envisions 2015 will be the year when the Internet of Things (IoT) starts to deliver on the hype, but it will require vendors and customers alike to change their approach. “Companies are always looking for ways to drive business transformation, deliver competitive differentiation and enhance the customer experience, and many are now realizing that the Internet of Things can help them deliver against these goals,” said Charles Reed Anderson, head of Mobility and IoT at IDC Asia/Pacific.

Dotdot Over Thread Deep Dive

Article | February 20, 2020

In the quickly evolving world of the IoT, multiple standards have developed in a short span of time, each with the goal of allowing smart home devices to communicate with each other and with multiple online services. One solution to this issue is the use of the Dotdot, an application layer developed for IoT devices to easily join networks of other similar devices and to communicate their status and capabilities in a standardized way, combined with Thread. Thread is an IP mesh network implementation designed for IoT device communication, promises to be a widely implemented standard in IoT device manufacture and development.

The IoT Smarthome Battlefield: A Jointly Endorsed IoT Standard for the Home Area Network

Article | February 20, 2020

Google announced that together with Amazon and Apple (the big 3 smart home players) they will work on the adoption of a joint wireless IoT standard for the smart home. This new connectivity standard is designed to make it easier for smart home products to work with each other.In the statement, Google said they were “joining Amazon, Apple and others to create Connected Home over IP, a new independent working group managed by the Zigbee Alliance (separate from the existing Zigbee 3.0/Pro protocol). We’re contributing two of our market-tested and open-source smart home technologies, Weave and Thread. Both are built on IP and have been integrated into millions of homes around the world.”

Smart Home Technologies: Zigbee, Z-Wave, Thread, and Dotdot

Article | February 20, 2020

If you own smart home products like SmartThings or Nest, you may be familiar with some of the technologies behind them. Network protocols like Zigbee and Z-Wave dominate the industry, while Thread, a younger network standard, is gaining headway as a strong contender in the battle for market share. Although this may seem like your typical rivalry between industry leaders, the competitive landscape is more complicated than selecting one over another.

IoT: Quench the thirst for smart water management

Article | February 20, 2020

Water is one of our most precious resources. Yet every year, we lose more than 126 million cubic meters globally to leaks, poor metering and theft. Beyond that is the energy wasted moving water that never gets used. It adds up to staggering economic – and environmental – costs. It also presents one of the most compelling opportunities to use industrial IoT solutions. Water utilities can use IoT to address two fundamental aspects of water management: maintaining the physical infrastructure and addressing water safety and sustainability. With IoT sensors throughout a water utility’s infrastructure, it becomes possible to. In many ways, these uses mirror what’s possible in manufacturing. But while factory floors are condensed environments – with all assets located in a confined area – water utilities operate highly distributed environments. Reservoirs, pipes, pumps and other assets are spread across a massive physical footprint. Such environments introduce some unique challenges. One of the most pressing is cost. Capturing data across a massive infrastructure – and moving it to the enterprise and/or cloud – is a heavy lift. That’s especially true when considering the criticality of timely transmission and analysis of water data. Any delay can contribute to continued losses.
