Under each machine, every connection, any kind of interface... there is a programming language. The IoT connects a myriad of devices to each other, creating a massive, complex network. But there are thousands and thousands of programming languages, too. Which is the most commonly used in the development of IoT? The choice of one language over another determines the end product or service, as well as the technical possibilities or the user experience. In the age of the Internet of Things, choosing the programming language properly is vital to the success of the project.

How to Leverage IoT to Protect Your Workers

Article | March 20, 2020

Workers in construction, agriculture and manufacturing are reported to have the highest incident rates, according to the 2018 research of the US Bureau of Labor Statistics. Medical expenses for work-related injuries are scoring millions of dollars each year. In recent years, businesses have increasingly opted for industrial IoT solutions that offer advanced monitoring capabilities designed to predict and prevent incidents. In many situations, smart monitoring can save lives in the event of equipment misuse or failure, inefficient safety regulations and health-threatening sites.

How to Effectively Monitor Utility Usage With IoT for Maximum ROI

Article | March 3, 2020

Operating a utility business can be particularly difficult, especially when you’re trying to maximize ROI. In the water utility space, per capita water usage has decreased while the water itself has become more expensive to collect. Across utilities sectors, aging infrastructure takes a large cost to maintain and eventually update. Consumer expectations and regulations also can cut into ROI. As they should, people expect clean and safe water and a continuous supply of electricity. The driving factor in the utilities space is efficiency. Enter the smart water meter. For our IoT water management solution, we used Google Cloud Platform (GCP). GCP has various benefits for water management through its wide array of products. We will go over two important features of a water management IoT solution.

Microsoft Introduces Seamless Integration of Azure IoT with Cisco IoT

Article | March 5, 2020

An integrated Azure IoT solution provides the necessary software, hardware, and cloud services that businesses need to rapidly launch IoT initiatives and quickly realize business value. Using software-based intelligence pre-loaded onto Cisco IoT network devices, telemetry data pipelines from industry-standard protocols, like OPC-Unified Architecture (OPC-UA) and Modbus, can be easily established using a UI directly into Azure IoT Hub. Services, like Microsoft Azure Stream Analytics, Microsoft Azure Machine Learning, and Microsoft Azure Notification Hub services, can be used to build IoT applications for the enterprise. Additional telemetry processing is also supported by Cisco through local scripts developed in Microsoft Visual Studio, where filtered data can also be uploaded directly into Azure IoT Hub. This collaboration provides customers with a fully integrated solution that will give access to design tools, global connectivity, advance analytics, and cognitive services for analyzing IoT data.

Securing industrial networks: it’s a journey

Article | April 14, 2021

Trying to secure the industrial network in one go is like boiling the ocean. Better to view it as a journey. At each step in the journey, you’ll make incremental changes to people, process, and technology. Minimal security. This is the current state for most manufacturers. If you’re here, you’ve segmented the industrial network from the IT network. Traffic can’t cross from the IT network to the industrial network without clearing the DMZ. You can block malware from entering the industrial network. You can block malware from leaving the industrial network to infect the enterprise network. But if the industrial network is exposed to malicious software, you don’t have a way to contain it. That means the malware might affect multiple manufacturing cells or production lines — even multiple plants.
