It’s true IoT is a real game-changer. The technology doesn’t only affect the consumers but also the providers of IoT solutions. IoT brings changes to software development on many levels, including web development. Complex IoT networks set new challenges for web developers in terms of both back and front ends. How do IoT systems differ exactly from good-old web development in the not-interconnected world? Let’s dig through the main peculiarities of IoT projects and find out the ways they affect web development. Read further to find out how IoT is reshaping web development and design.  The Place for Web Development in IoT If you’re wondering why we bother talking about IoT and web development in the first place, give us a chance to explain. The network of connected devices relies on web servers. The data obtained from sensors is stored in the cloud. Advanced messaging protocols are responsible for communication between devices. And it’s the user interface that helps other users interact with connected devices. On top of that, many IoT devices can display website content. These include UIs on TVs, laptops, wearables, smart appliances, and industrial monitors. Some of them can search the web through browsers. For instance, take Amazon’s Echo with its virtual assistant Alexa. As you can see, web development and design are actually important parts of IoT projects.

The role of BSS in the journey to 5G monetization

Article | March 24, 2020

The rollout of commercial 5G services is well underway. This evolution is unlocking exciting new opportunities, but it also presents new challenges. To capture new 5G revenue streams, service providers must transform their existing business support systems (BSS), and develop clear roadmaps to guide this transformation. In the latest MIT Insights report, telecom executives share their vision for 5G-enabled BSS, and how they are preparing for it. Here, we explore some of the highlights. The benefits of 5G are well-documented. Low-latency connectivity and superior broadband speeds will open doors to fully automated factories and put driverless vehicles on our roads. Service providers will be able to provide cutting-edge solutions and superior consumer experiences. However, monetizing a 5G-fuelled IoT society requires a clear strategic roadmap – particularly when it comes to BSS. As 5G matures, BSS will play an increasingly important role in establishing the service provider’s position in the value chain – and having a clear BSS evolution plan is crucial.

Building a Cold Chain Management IoT Solution

Article | March 24, 2020

Artificial intelligence (AI) has existed in the public consciousness for decades. The (mostly) sentient machines playing the villains in Hollywood movies have never been realistic depictions of the technology, but they have left an impression, nonetheless. AI has proved as exciting to the layman as it is to the expert. Usually based in remote data centers, AI is capable of collecting and examining immense volumes of data, generating insights based on analytical algorithms. With varying degrees of autonomy, these capabilities have been put to use streamlining decision-making processes. While AI is often thought of as a product in its own right, it is increasingly intersecting with other parallel trends. Chief among these is the Internet of things (IoT), which enables previously isolated machines to “talk” to one another and, at the same time, generate data that makes new modes of operation a possibility.

DEPLOYING MACHINE LEARNING TO HANDLE INFLUX OF IOT DATA

Article | March 24, 2020

The Internet of Things is gradually penetrating every aspect of our lives. With the growth in numbers of internet-connected sensors built into cars, planes, trains, and buildings, we can say it is everywhere. Be it smart thermostats or smart coffee makers, IoT devices are marching ahead into mainstream adoption. But, these devices are far from perfect. Currently, there is a lot of manual input required to achieve optimal functionality — there is not a lot of intelligence built-in. You must set your alarm, tell your coffee maker when to start brewing, and manually set schedules for your thermostat, all independently and precisely.

IoT as a Service: Lowering the Cost Barrier of IoT for Small and Mid-Sized Businesses

Article | March 24, 2020

There are already 20 billion IoT-connected devices, and 8 billion of those are devices used by enterprises, according to a report by Gartner. The impact of the Internet of Things market is potentially $11 trillion by 2025. The investment in IoT has come primarily from large businesses, but the technology is increasingly available via ‘as-a-service’, making it possible for businesses of all sizes to benefit. The ‘as-a-service’ model reduces the cost of ownership and capital expenditures and makes it easy for small businesses to investigate IoT with smaller up-font investments and less risk. Frank Della Rosa, research director at IDC, said that “Software as a Service (SaaS) continues to be the most highly deployed cloud segment, representing a commanding 62.4% of the total cloud market revenues.”
