Frailties of LoRaWAN IoT Devices

Article | March 5, 2020

Low-power wide-area networks (LPWANs) are helping drive the Internet of things (IoT) explosion. They connect millions of low-power IoT and Industrial IoT (IIoT) devices into wireless networks over a range of distances, from short to really, really long, from indoor applications to those covering large fields or even cities. But device designers using the LoRaWAN standard may be lulled into thinking that just configuring its security keys is enough to prevent their devices from being hacked. A new report says it isn’t. Four protocols give enterprises a choice in LPWAN connectivity: cellular NB-IoT, LTE-M, and Sigfox, and the non-cellular LoRaWAN standard. Among these, the open LoRaWAN overwhelmingly dominates. Omdia (formerly IHS Markit – Technology) projects a “quite high forecast” for LoRa, said Lee Ratliff, senior principal analyst, connectivity and IoT.

A three-step approach to successful IoT adoption

Article | March 5, 2020

Most would agree that the adoption rate of the Internet of Things (IoT) has fallen well short of predictions. Given the proven benefits that the IoT can deliver, such as preventative maintenance and real-time asset management, it’s confounding that every company isn’t well on its way to leveraging IoT. There are far more attempts to adopt the IoT than successes, says Terri Foudray, founder and CEO of Rumble, as well as several reasons that the IoT is not meeting or exceeding adoption forecasts. The culprits behind adoption failures include the lack of available talent, the overwhelming and complex volume of prospective vendors, the lack of a solid business case to define success, and the derailing of initiatives caused by unanticipated political and cultural pitfalls that often accompany enterprise-wide technology adoption.

Cloud suppliers' share of IoT data and analytics revenues to top $56 billion by 2026

Article | March 5, 2020

A new report from ABI Research predicts that cloud platform suppliers will see a more than $50 billion increase in their share of IoT data and analytics revenue by 2026.Companies providing cloud services have spent years building out their investments in the IoT space and continue to make headway in spreading cloud usage throughout the IoT value chain. The figures come from ABI Research's IoT Analytics and Data Management Services Strategies of Major Cloud Suppliers application analysis report, which examined the competitive outlook of the cloud vendor market and recent acquisitions. The report takes an in-depth look at how leading cloud providers like AWS, Azure, Oracle, Cisco, Huawei, SAP, Google, PTC, Cloudera are positioned in the IoT market and it compares the tools and services offered by each company. It is designed to help IoT companies figure out who the market leaders are, which cloud platforms would be most relevant for their particular industry and revenue forecasts from 2019 until 2026 for IoT integration, storage, analytics, presentation and professional services.

Which IoT Applications will Benefit Most from Edge Computing?

Article | March 5, 2020

Edge computing refers to information being processed at the edge of the network, rather than being sent to a central cloud server. The benefits of edge computing include reduced latency, reduced costs, increased security and increased business efficiency. Transferring data from the edge of a network takes time, particularly if the data is being collected in a remote location. While the transfer may usually take less than a second, glitches in the network or an unreliable connection may increase the time required. For some IoT applications, for example, self-driving cars, even a second may be too long. Imagine a security camera that’s monitoring an empty hallway. There’s no need to send hours of large video files of an empty hallway to a cloud server (where you will need to pay to store them). With edge computing, the video could be sent to the cloud only if there is movement detected in the hallway.
