Industrial automation involves the integration of physical machinery and processes with sensors, computers, and software. The result is an intelligent manufacturing infrastructure for increased safety and efficiency, and lowered costs. However, industrial automation comes with its own set of challenges. These include the need to connect multiple proprietary control systems, maintain end – to-end system uptime, reduce energy consumption and total costs, adhere to regulatory requirements, and increase safety and security at every phase. At its core, industrial automation aims to bring together the advances of two transformative revolutions: the machines, facilities, fleets and networks that arose from the Industrial Revolution, and the powerful advances in computing, information and communication systems established via the Internet Revolution.

The rise of enterprise in IoT

Article | February 25, 2020

GSMA Intelligence’s principal IoT analyst Sylwia Kechiche explores enterprises’ digital transformation journey. For better or worse, the IoT has captured the public attention. Yet, while news headlines focuses mostly on consumer devices being connected (speakers, cars, fridges, drones), this is just one part of the story. Purely connecting devices is not the IoT end-game. Rather, it is about the data these devices generate, the insights derived and actions taken as a result to create value and benefit consumers, enterprises and wider society. We are now at the point that IoT is real: it has moved beyond novelty factor and proof of concepts. MWC19 witnessed that, but it also left unanswered questions that are still being grappled with.

IoT Standards and Protocols Explained

Article | April 13, 2021

For businesses, the transformative power of IoT is increasingly significant with the promise of improving operational efficiency and visibility, while reducing costs. However, IoT does not come without risks and challenges. While concerns over security and data privacy continue to rise, the lack of IoT standards remains one of the biggest hurdles. The increasing number of legacy, single-vendor, and proprietary solutions cause problems with disparate systems, data silos and security gaps. As IoT successes become more dependent on seamless interoperability and data-sharing among different systems, we want to avoid the scenario of a fragmented market with numerous solutions that simply don’t work with each other.

What Is IoT Forensics? Challenges Ahead and Best Tools to Use

Article | May 24, 2021

Internet of Things, generally known as IoT, is a network of objects or things. Embedded sensors help connect and exchange data with other objects via the internet. IoT is often related to the concept of smart homes, including devices like home security systems, cameras, lighting, refrigerators, etc. With all this data being transmitted over the internet, it is easy for the data to be modified, deleted, or stolen, which can lead to an invasion, theft, etc. IoT forensics plays a vital role in maintaining the integrity and security of the data being transmitted. Join us as we explore this fascinating web of devices and how you can get started in this vibrant field of forensics.

Practical AI – A Serious Issue for Industrial IoT

Article | February 28, 2020

While the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is maturing rapidly, there’s often a strong link to Artificial intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) tools to manage data flows. This raises a host of challenges including connectivity, security, storage and modeling requirements. Designers of IIoT devices and larger deployments must build in contingencies for shifts in these areas or risk falling short. While IIoT is gaining in maturity, the overall market still has many challenges to overcome. Some of these challenges are technical barriers to IoT device operation, such as connectivity standards and battery technology, but the picture is even wider than that. The world of IIoT not only requires IoT hardware to operate reliably and efficiently in all environments but also relies on supporting networks and services too. The result is that IIoT deployments cannot be viewed as isolated technology upgrades or productivity drives, but highly interconnected ecosystems sensitive to a wide range of variables – in particular the developing world of AI.
