"Collecting, storing, and analyzing high-throughput information can help companies stay up to date on their business, customers, and assets. In the past, these capabilities required complex software and a lot of infrastructure that was expensive to buy, provision, and manage. Today, Amazon• Kinesis* makes it easy to set up high-capacity pipes that can collect and distribute data in real time, at any scale — enabling fast movement of machine data from edge to cloud for consumption by applications to make quick and decisive data-driven actions.
So, instead of locking data away in large files that are not readily accessible, companies may utilize Inter Gateway Solutions for the Internet of Things (Inter Gateway Solutions for the loT) to send each event to Amazon Kinesis, making them available for real-time processing. As such, • Data can be continuously analyzed without waiting until the end of the business day • Key business metrics can be closely monitored via dynamic dashboards • Data can be securely shared with third parties for additional applications This paper explains how to stream data from an Inter processor-based loT gateway to Amazon Kinesis, and how applications can receive streaming data from Amazon Kinesis"

Zigbee vs. Bluetooth: Choosing the Right Protocol for Your IoT Application

Article | March 5, 2020

Both Zigbee® and Bluetooth® wireless protocols are widely used for local communications in Internet of Things (IoT) applications, and there are some trade-offs to review in choosing the right one for your application. Each protocol has unique strengths that guide which solution to implement when designing a new network. In certain situations, one protocol will be a better fit than the other, though sometimes the right solution is to implement both together to take advantage of their combined strengths, as we will discuss in this article. To better understand these IoT protocol options, let's take a look at the advantages and limitations of Zigbee, followed by the same for three different "flavors" of Bluetooth: Classic, BLE, and BT Mesh. This will help explain the trade-offs and show some use cases for each, so that you can choose the optimal protocol for your IoT application - be it a smart city, industrial IoT, digital signage or other connected technology use case.

How Will IoT Revolutionize Pharmaceutical Manufacturing?

Article | March 5, 2020

Pharma is big business, but what it’s not generally recognized is, in large part, a manufacturing business with complex supply chains, finicky chemical processes and products that have to meet stringent quality controls. Few of those outside the industry think about how drugs are made safely, efficiently and at scale with reliable quality and in precisely measured doses. Even more interesting is the simple fact that pharma often produces sophisticated drugs using manufacturing processes that are decades out of date, and which are being phased out in comparable industries, such as chemical manufacturing.

Connected Fleet Management: Why a Unified Network is Key

Article | March 5, 2020

As consumer demands evolve, fleet managers are turning to IoT to deliver products faster and more efficiently. The progress being made in edge computing represents the full potential of IoT: the power of data on the move. However, operating on the edge also reveals some of IoT’s greatest challenges: maintaining network security as the number of endpoints multiplies; rethinking traditional business models as industries become increasingly interdependent; and, perhaps most importantly, establishing a seamless, reliable network across borders, cultures, and regulatory environments.
